Prebuilt
Overview
At Prebuilt, we recognise that every project is unique. During the process, your brief is analysed by Prebuilt and our partner architects Pleysier Perkins to ensure the completed design is one you’ll be happy to live with for many years to come.

Our modern prefab houses are built efficiently in a matter of weeks and installed in just days, with all services, trades and materials project managed and architecturally supervised in one of our Melbourne-based factories.

Regardless of the type or style of house selected, our team of skilled professionals guides each project from start to finish through each of the following stages:

Initial Visit
Visit our display suites and factory facilities in the Melbourne suburb of Kilsyth to view the houses and meet the Prebuilt team.
Cost – Nil
Architect Consultation
Meet with Prebuilt and our architectural partners Pleysier Perkins to discuss your project brief, budget and site specifics. Following this meeting, Prebuilt will provide a brief and a budget estimate for both your project and for the next stages. This meeting can take place at Prebuilt’s office in Kilsyth or Pleysier Perkins’ office in Prahran.
Cost – Nil
Site Inspection
The architects will visit your land to conduct a full analysis and discuss the pre-designed or custom-designed house style that will best suit the site’s landfall, orientation and views.

Cost – Varies on location
Concept Design
The Pleysier Perkins concept design, including floor plans, site plan, window schedule and an interactive 3D model of your new home, will be presented at a meeting.

Cost – Varies with project size and complexity
Project Costing
Following concept design, Prebuilt will prepare a fully fixed price costing that includes all architect and engineering fees. Once you have approved the Prebuilt costing proposal, a preliminary agreement is signed and a deposit is paid. This deposit is later deducted from the first contract payment.
Cost – Preliminary deposit varies with size of project
Documentation
Prebuilt prepares town planning drawings, which are also reviewed by Pleysier Perkins, for council approval. Once approved, a full set of architectural drawings, including detailed interior specifications, are prepared and any changes to the original design are re-costed.
Cost – Covered by preliminary deposit
Contract Signing
Prebuilt prepares a standard HIA residential housing contract for your fully documented home. Once contracts are signed, a building permit is organised
and lodged by Prebuilt.
Cost – 5% of total cost, less deposit paid
Construction
Your house will take approximately 12 weeks to construct in our factory. Prebuilt allocates a qualified engineer to project manage your build, and clients are encouraged to visit to inspect progress. Architects Pleysier Perkins will also make weekly inspections of your home during construction.
Cost – Progress payments as per contract
Delivery & Installation
During construction, Prebuilt will organise the installation of your footings. Once your building is complete, your house will be transported to your site and typically installed in just days. Final onsite finishing usually takes between one and two weeks.
Cost – Final contract payment
