How does New Level build?
As Perth’s best value 2 Storey Home Builder, we pride ourselves on providing a new level of style with our collection of affordable high-quality two storey homes to Perth families and investors.
By thinking smarter and taking advantage of the very best new technologies, we can deliver your home at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.
And we offer you a choice of how you want to build. You can choose to build a ‘hybrid’ home which means a double brick ground floor, with lightweight upstairs. This equates to a faster build time and a more energy efficient method than traditional construction. Or you can choose a fully framed home which means lightweight construction upstairs and down, and an even faster build time – with the price to match.

How long does it take to build a fully framed or hybrid home?
When building a two-storey home there are a lot of points to consider including the complexity of the site, details of the design, turn-key finishing options, and current market conditions. These components will affect how long the build will take. In usual circumstances, an average build time using hybrid construction methods can range from 30-40 weeks, from slabdown and lightweight can range from 20-30 weeks, from slabdown.

When is the right time to build?
The second half of 2020 saw a surge of interest in building and renovating due to Government stimulus. From inner suburb developments through to estate subdivisions, land prices rose and immediate availability of land and tradie availability decreased. The buying cycle sped up as supply vs demand experienced imbalance.
Key indicators would predict that beginning your investigation phase immediately and starting the purchasing process after summer would allow you to complete your dream design, obtain necessary approvals and secure tradies without extra delays.
