Brisbane house raising & building underneath services
At ACM, we like to keep house raise or ‘lift and build’ projects as simple as possible. This means we are happy to help you coordinate the building plans and surveys, whilst recommend a structural engineer and certifier, to make sure your house raise moves from design through to raise as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
Lifting a home has a long list of benefits, particularly in the Brisbane area. ACM Constructions have become the builder of choice for many home owners in this area because of our substantial experience and comprehensive service.
The great advantage of a lift and build project is the extra floor area that can be gained while maintaining your current backyard space. The newly created ‘downstairs’ area can be used for more bedrooms, a carport, guest rooms, extra living space, a home office, and so much more.
We also provide Resilient Home Fund raise projects for flood affected homeowners across Brisbane. Learn more about that process right here.
ACM Constructions will work with any Architectural or design plans that you may have, or alternatively, we offer a Design and Construct service whereby we manage your lift and build project from start to finish. At ACM Constructions we pride ourselves on completing your project to the highest standard.
Lift and Build Process
While the details of each Lift and Build project vary greatly, the basic process follows the same pattern. ACM Constructions will work with Energex to have all utilities disconnected. Any external stairs will also be disconnected before the house is raised. After the home is elevated ACM Constructions lay additional foundations and retaining walls if required. New stairs are built so that you can access your newly raised home and construction work on both the upper and lower levels can begin.
For specific details on the lift and build process for your home it is best to contact ACM Constructions for further discussion.
