Every Oppidan Home is Designed from Scratch
Our design brief methodology ensures a comprehensive assessment of your lifestyle, accommodation, budgetary and architectural needs. We then combine this with the locations features, environmental considerations and construction cost strategies to develop an effective design that is unique to you.
Oppidan has the same aim as You
We commit to keeping within budget so that you can afford to build your home. Using design innovation, minimising waste of space, creating flexible living spaces, using cost effective construction methods and where possible utilising standardised materials maximises what your dollar will buy.
Exemplary Record with Council Approvals
Oppidan has an exemplary record for quickly obtaining Council approval of plans. This is achieved through the thoroughness of our design process and our considerable experience.
We gather all of the relevant data up front and our team assess a range of considerations such as stormwater easements, overshadowing neighbours and design synergy with the existing street scape. Pre submission meetings with Council ensure any issues are addressed and quickly changed using our computerised design system.

Oppidan Works on your Behalf
Without compromising the design, construction and material costs are a major factor in our process. We seek multiple quotes for all major items ensuring competitive prices are achieved. Our builders are not only of the highest quality and can complete the build phase in the required time frame but they have Home Owner Warranty Insurance ensuring you are protected.
We manage the whole process on your behalf. We conduct regular site meetings and address any issues that may arise. We take responsibility for quality control of all aspects of the construction and report back to you ensuring that you are involved in and approve of the related works. Oppidan will secure the occupation certificate confirming that the building meets all required standards and we will continue to provide professional assistance should issues arise after you have moved in.
