What is the renovation process at Refresh? 

Throughout the Refresh 5-step process, our focus is on communication, transparency, and delivering exceptional results that align with your vision and requirements.

Initial Consultation: At the beginning of your project, we schedule an initial consultation to discuss your ideas, goals, and budget for your renovation or build. We then talk with our team of experienced professionals, including builders and designers, who help provide insights to help you refine your vision.

Concept and Design: In this stage, we work closely with you to create a comprehensive design that aligns with your requirements and preferences. We'll also provide a detailed cost estimate to ensure your project stays within budget.

Detailed Planning: Once the design is approved, we move to the planning phase. This involves obtaining any necessary permits, finalising the project schedule, and selecting materials and finishes. We create a detailed project plan to ensure a smooth and efficient construction process.

Construction and Project Management: During the construction phase, our skilled builders and tradespeople bring your project to life. We oversee all aspects of the build, ensuring that everything runs according to plan and on schedule.

Completion and Handover: The final step involves the finishing touches and quality checks. We conduct a thorough inspection to ensure everything meets our high standards, and then we hand over your newly renovated or built space to you.

What are the current building trends in Christchurch? 

Christchurch is alive with renewal and revitalisation. And with more and more people flocking to make the move, home building projects and renovations are flourishing.

Thus, focusing on utilising all available space through innovative space-saving design should be at the centre of any home renovation. Easier said than done?

We’re here to help you. 

Whether extending your home with a second storey addition or expanding into open-plan living, our Renovation Consultants and their network of expert Christchurch Builders can help you fully utilise your home space, ensuring maximum style and value. 

They will help you realise your vision for any home building brief. And with an expert team here to assist all aspects of your house build plans, you can count on us to deliver a premium standard service on time and budget.

How much will my Christchurch build project cost?

Every homeowner’s project is unique, and prices will vary according to the materials you use and the complexity of the plans.It all comes down to the materials chosen, the scale of build, and ensuring that you’re working with the right people. Don’t think short-term, think long-term. 

Cost to build a garage

For example, in Christchurch, building a new garage can cost anywhere between $30,000 for a basic build to $60,000+* for a high-end garage.

Cost to extended your home

As a rough estimate, costs for a same-level extension range between $90,000 and $200,000+*. To make your money go further, you can opt for basic materials and cut back unnecessary extras.

Cost to add a second story

House extensions can range from $80,000 for smaller, more straightforward projects to $250,000* for larger and more complex extensions. The final cost depends on factors such as the size of the extension, materials used, council requirements, and the scope of the project.

Cost to renovate a bathroom

Bathroom renovations in Christchurch typically range anywhere between $20,000 for a basic renovation to $90,000 * for a high-end finish. It all depends on the project design and specifications.

Cost to build a laundry

What the cost will primarily come down to is whether you need new plumbing to remodel or are simply refurbishing. But for an idea, the average cost for laundry renovations in Christchurch starts around $5,000* and moves upward depending on project plans.
