Optam Clients' Testimonials
The house Julie and I desired was rather special, not a straight forward construction for the builder. To Royce’s credit, he took each challenge with ease, and accomplished a professional outcome. The experience Royce brought to the project was invaluable, his advice and honest opinion was greatly appreciated. The relationship of trust and good communication has developed a friendship that has continued long after the completion of the project. Julie and I would not hesitate in recommending Optam for any building project. In fact, give me a call on 0418 624 436 if you have any doubts.

On each occasion we have been more than satisfied with the workmanship and end product. Royce and his competent team have the job in hand at all times, finding cost effective solutions to problems and ensuring a seamless transition from design through approvals and construction phases.

From Design to Completion and Beyond
Optam Building Group can manage all steps of the building process from prelim design through to sparkling handover. However, you are also welcome to arrange your own design or engineering professionals to complete some of the preliminaries.
We offer an eight-stage design and construction process:
During our initial consultation we will learn more about you, for example, your preferred building styles and locations, your current energy usage patterns and also your goals for your new energy efficient home. We can do this by phone, webform or email -- whichever works best for you. We also discuss whether a site appraisal is required if you already own land.
We prepare our proposal outlining various options for how we can help you to achieve your goal of owning an energy efficient home, including full pricing and a project program.
We will arrange all site works, including contour survey, engineer’s soil classification and a search of the relevant Council building code to assess local conditions and requirements. While this is happening, our designers will usually provide you with some preliminary designs for your new energy efficient home along with indicative pricing and timelines for construction. It is a great time to start making selections of your preferred finishes.
We provide you with a fixed price contract with firm construction times guaranteed by professional tradespeople.
This stage involves payment of development applications, water and plumbing approvals, BSA, QLeave and portable long service leave levies.
We manage all contractors, deliveries, security and especially safety measures on your site to ensure harmony between all trades and the existing residents in your street. Our staff will help you make final selections and will be available to answer any queries relating to the construction progress and schedule. We hold regular site meetings and send regular email updates on the progress of construction including any site conditions which may interfere with our schedule.
What better way to celebrate the completion of your new home than to be given a guided tour and demonstration of the attributes before sharing some naturally brewed beverages.
We provide a user manual and a reminder when routine maintenance such as pest inspections or a gutter clean is required. We can even organise these tasks to be completed for you.
