The Development Process

Pindan Homes' Develop journey


Let us guide you through the entire journey, from development application to
council approval, construction and key handover.

If you have a block of land to subdivide there are several options available, ranging from simply selling the block to a developer through to developing the block yourself. 

The project assessment, development application, council approval and building processes can be time consuming, complicated and expensive. By partnering with Pindan, you’ll receive an excellent return on your land while leaving all the messy paperwork, building approvals and construction to us. 

Step by Step.

STEP 1: Getting started – research and development assessment 

The first step in residential property development is researching your existing block of land or established house site to determine development potential for an additional one or more dwellings. It is also important to have an understanding of your borrowing capacity and what to expect. 

Our team of industry professionals can coordinate the entire process and advise you on the project’s viability. We can provide project costs and advise on how best to maximise your development with a complimentary Project Feasibility Audit. 

In addition, we’ll listen to your investment aspirations and goals, then work with you to plan your development project in a way that best achieves them. This includes conducting a site inspection to assess your land and its surroundings and organise a survey and engineer’s report (if necessary) to fully understand and determine the various elements of your block. 

STEP 2: Design plans, approvals & permits

When you are happy with the recommendations and all initial decisions have been made, we will prepare concept plans relevant to state planning codes in accordance to your area and your local council’s development guidelines, leveraging our extensive knowledge of building codes and local planning policy to maximise the return on your investment.

We take the hassle out of the process, liaising with the council to gain all necessary building approvals needed to proceed to the construction phase - you won’t have to worry about a thing.

STEP 3: Prestart & colour selection

To keep your project on time and on budget, a series of meetings will be organised to run through plans and all the finer details of your selection process to ensure any final, non-structural amendments are made with your DA approval. This includes all relevant decisions on your electrical plan, fixtures and fittings.

A list of selections also will be carried out in consultation with our prestart consultant to select tiles and cabinetry colours for your kitchen, bathrooms and laundry, interior and exterior colours and any feature materials specified.

STEP 4: Site works and commencement of construction

Once necessary building approvals, selections and decisions have been finalised, it’s time for construction. We get on site to build your project, where you finally you see all your hard work start to come to fruition. This stage can last anywhere between nine to fifteen months, depending on the size of the project.

Our experienced team will provide you with regular progress updates and complete peace of mind that your development project will be quality built within the timeframe specified.

STEP 5: Handover – the keys to your investment

Congratulations! Upon completion, you’ll receive the keys to your brand new development project. Whether you sell, rent or live in your new development, we assure you that you will find complete peace of mind when choosing to build with Pindan.
