Bathroom Design Guide




Bathroom Design & Construction Guide by McClarty Constructions


Initial Meeting:

Alex will arrange to meet with you at your house to measure and discuss your ideas and what options are available for layout, accessories and colours. Budgets for your bathroom can be discussed at this time.  NB. most bathroom renovations start from around $15k.


Bathroom Plan:

Alex will draw the plan up for you whilst on site going through all of your requirements.


Item & Colour Schedule:

When you are happy with the design of your new bathroom, we require you to confirm your bathroom items, accessories and colours. This will be recorded and included in the contract.


Quote & Contract:

Following the final approved design and Item & Bathroom Schedule, we will provide the quote and contract for you to complete and sign. The contract will provide all information in relation to your bathroom renovation. A start date will then be decided and scheduled in.


Pay Insurance:

At the same time that the quote is accepted, we arrange for payment of QBSA Insurance.


Construction Begins:

The general process will follow and the time for completion is dependent on the complexity of the design:Demolition and removal of old bathroom and any walls if required.
