Blanco Building took out the 2017 Queensland Master Builders “House of the Year”, “Best Residential Kitchen of the Year” and “Home Renovation/Remodelling Project $576,000 – $1million” category.
If you are wanting something unique that stands out in your neighbourhood, then Blanco Building can assist.
As we are a small, boutique new home building specialist, we take the time to listen and consider your specific requests and provide a personalised, bespoke service. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with an end-to-end service from design, construct and fitout. We can even offer a knock down and rebuild service if the thought of doing a costly and risky renovation is too scary.
By integrating both the design, construct and fitout, our team at Blanco Building provides a unique, holistic approach to home building. We link the design and building phases under one roof to make the process as seamless and efficient as we can, while encouraging close collaboration amongst our team and our valued clients.
At Blanco Building, our team works with you to build you a dream home to suit your block of land, lifestyle aspirations and budget. At Blanco Building, our focus is on quality, not quantity and we take the time to walk you through every step of the build process.
DESIGN AND APPROVALS
If you build with us at Blanco Building, you can access the services of both our qualified, in-house building designer and interior designer. We are passionate about design and our team can create a custom home solution to achieve purposeful and functional living. Whether you want a contemporary modern home, a beautiful Queenslander period design or a coastal/beach style, we will provide you with a design outcome that reflects who you are.
There are no restrictions with your design and you aren’t limited to choosing just one house plan from a selected list like with larger spec home builders. We can build to your plan or bring in your pictures and ideas and tell us what you want and we can design it for you. Our initial designs always start in a very raw and organic form allowing full input and collaboration from our clients so they are always involved in the creative process from the very initial conceptual designs through to the completed plans.
We do not have standard designs or design ‘themes’ for our homes. We start with a blank canvas and an open mind. We listen carefully to what our clients want and try to understand their vision for their lifestyle, their family and their budget.
Other technical things we take into consideration when custom designing your new home include:
- Frontage & depth
- Driveway location
- Orientation and natural light
- Setbacks and easements
- Trees and vegetation
- Neighbouring houses & existing character
- Utilities supply
With Blanco Building there is no need to compromise on your dream. You’ll discover that our approach to home design is truly bespoke – meaning that we’ll work in total collaboration with you to design and build your contemporary designed, energy-efficient and liveable luxury home.
Our service takes the hassles away from you. We offer free, no-obligation quotes on all our projects and who wants to think about the boring stuff? Our fees include:
- A free, initial site visit to provide a structural assessment on your existing dwelling
- Drafting of plans
- Interior design
- Council building certifications and applications
- Energy Efficiency requirements
Building a new home can be one of life’s biggest decisions so we are mindful of the number of projects we undertake each year so that all our attention and resources are concentrated on your dream home. We are passionate about building, and just as passionate about sourcing the latest building methods, most cost-effective materials and most innovative design concepts.
We specialise in building to the highest quality by focusing on the selection of superior materials, handpicking the North’s best and most renowned tradespeople, thorough supervision and quality control inspections. The importance of quality tradespeople working on your home cannot be overstated – it will have a huge impact on the final quality of your new home. Timing and planning is key to avoiding blowouts, making it critical that trades are punctual, do the job well (and efficiently) and work in tandem with each other.
Glenn, the owner of the business, is extremely particular about producing the highest level of workmanship and personally oversees every step of all new home builds. At Blanco Building, every new home is subjected to a rigorous quality checking process at key stages of the build. Our level of testing and third party inspections goes well above and beyond code requirements. Our goal is to build homes that last centuries, not decades.
We are proud to be registered members of the Queensland Master Builders Association and we comply with current industry standards, trends and offer an industry-leading aftercare program where every customer is provided with a 12-month maintenance warranty during the first year in your new home. Blanco Building is a true quality builder and we will only use recognised brands from trusted local suppliers for all the fixtures and fittings that go into your new home – not low quality, cheap items.
As we specialise in building in the tropics, we can provide you with valuable advice and information regarding cyclone rated housing, energy efficient options and the very latest building products and techniques.
