How to Identify the Best Land and Location for Your Construction

Obviously you need to identify the best location to construct your commercial or industrial building.

As a business owner you need to think about what location would best suit your staff, customers and deliveries. And as an investor you need to think about the best location that suites your target tenants.

But once you’ve got an idea of where you want to be you need then find the land. This is where professional help can be very valuable. Choose the right expert and they’ll know what land is available and be able to get you the best price for the land.

There is also another thing that needs to be considered and that’s how suitable the actual land is to construct the type of building you need. This is really important as it can make a massive difference to your construction costs.

Make sure you get a specialist in commercial and industrial buildings to inspect the land and make sure it’s suitable to build what you need without increasing construction costs.

This is something we often help our client with. If you’d like help with this, then please give us a call on 1300 11 25 11.


Another Great Project Completed

We’ve just finished a duplex in Nerang for an investor. This client had purchased the land for investment purposes, and he was ready to invest in the construction of the site.

As with all our investor clients we made sure we utilised the 2011m² block to get the best return on their investment.

The important thing is to make sure the blocks are attractive to potential tenants including offering generous space for car parking, easy access, the right balance between office space and warehouse and allowing for a truck turning bay.

On completion of the project the client said:
“Clarke’s built two factories for me, they did the whole thing, got it through Council, built them and handed me the keys when they were finished.”
“They were very helpful; we looked at previous jobs they’d built. They provided 3D plans, which helped us see the design and choose the colours.”
“We found the construction process very easy, we didn’t have to do anything, Clarke’s looked after it all and built it in good time. The building is very good. I’m very pleased. The level of finish is better than I expected.”
“If you’re thinking about using Clarke’s Design & Construct come and have a look at my building, see for yourself. Then you’d make the same decision that I made and use Clarke’s for your building.”

How to Make Sure Your Building is Designed Cost Effectively, Potentially Saving you Thousands

We’ve had a number of clients in the past that can’t believe what we can construct for them at the price quoted.

Check out this video from a client whom we’ve recently finished a build for. They were just about to sign up with another builder when we first spoke to them. They couldn’t believe how much we could save them. 

One of the main reasons we are able to do this is because we do the designs as well. We focus on producing plans based on cost effective construction instead of something that will win a prize.

So make sure you engage a designer who will focus on producing plans based on cost effective construction instead of their ego.

Over the past 12 years too often we’ve seen designs that look great on paper but proper thought hasn’t been given to the most cost effective way to construct the building.

And the builder will often construct straight from the plans without even checking if there is a more cost effective way to construct your building. This can waste thousands of your $$$.

Some of the key things you can do to reduce the construction costs include:

  • Moving the location of drains
  • Changing the roof pitch
  • Having the structure facing the other way

So when you select a designer/architect make sure they understand the building process and know how to design a building to minimise construction costs.

The best thing to do is select one that specialises in this area and is part of or works closely with or is a builder who also specialises in commercial and industrial construction.

This is why at Clarke’s Design and Construct we’ve setup our business to complete the design and construction process for our clients. Making sure we’re building cost effectively while still achieving the result they want.
