Assessment of the Site

Flat plots are ideal surfaces for home building because you can construct a slab without issues. However, not all sites are this favourable and factors like slops, elevation, etc, can make a project challenging. At Welsh Building Company, we love challenging projects and have worked on several of them over the years. If you like a plot but are worried about elevation, call us today.

 Our first step is to assess a site accurately to identify its characteristics. Our goal is to determine what kind of challenge it will present during designing, construction, and ownership. Constructing on a slope isn’t just challenging; it also has a considerable environmental impact.

We have home designs that are especially suitable for building on sloping blocks of land. Our team has a lot of experience and knows how to assess the property efficiently. While we can work around many challenges, some are just too risky. Our team will offer honest and straightforward advice on the land’s suitability.

Factors to Consider

 There are some long-term factors to consider while building on elevated and sloping sites. Our experts will explain everything about issues like:

  • Land structure, including topography, natural elements, artificial structures, etc.
  • Space available for construction and the client’s space requirements.
  • Location of the property.
  • Environmental impact.
  • Ecological value of the land.
  • Site slope, stormwater runoff, and ground conditions.

We consider many influential factors during the assessment and planning process, so you have a realistic idea of what to expect. You should also check whether the site is appropriately accessible. While a small road leading to a private enclave by a cliff sounds like a good idea, it’s not accessible. An entire construction crew should be able to move in and out of the property without issues.

As an established construction company, we’re dedicated to turning our client’s dreams into reality. Our team will design a house and plan construction carefully, so your house doesn’t just look pretty, but is also easy to own.
