Council and Building process

Once you have decided to go ahead with Patio Living, we enter the administrative and building phases of your project.


Plans and Council

We draw detailed plans, marry this with engineering and submit your project to the local authorities for approval. Within 5 working days of the shire application being completed the project is lodged with the relevant local authority

Thomas our dedicated planning consultant will keep you appraised weekly on its progress so that you are completely aware of the process and the timescales involved.

We find that most projects usually pass through the council process without any problems. Approval time varies greatly by area but may take six to twelve weeks. We'll also keep you informed of any delays and when approval has been received. Some complex projects that require additional engineering or for projects in heritage areas it may take a little longer.

Once the shire have approved the licence application your project is placed safely into the hands of Cassie Byfield your project coordinator and Cassie will look after your process up until the date we deliver the materials to site.



Once approval has been received, the next phase of your project is production. To begin this process a detailed site check is completed during this period by Peter Grimwade our construction manager and this is to ensure that the material and colour choices and any structural or mechanical issues are all in hand a long time prior to construction. Our motto is an old fashioned one measure at least twice and build once!



When the preparation of your project is complete we will arrange a convenient time with you for the delivery of materials and advise when the trades will be on site to start the project.


On site

Our trades people will build your project as specified. They build to our exacting standards and are fully insured. At this point Peter supervises the construction team until the date we leave the site completed and spotless, and your new alfresco is ready to see the arrival of friends and family for your first function!


Final inspection

After completion we'll call back to do a final inspection, ensuring your project has been completed to your satisfaction and our high standards.

If you happen to have any issues after the project is completed, our warranties and guarantees ensure that any issues are dealt with promptly and professionally. 

It's that easy. To start planning your project today, just give us a call, we're available 7 days 9322 3777.
