Each and every Baxter Home is individually designed and engineered for your site. There are a number of steps in the process that happen behind the scenes to ensure your home is built to ALL Building and Australian Standards.
Even standard designs are redesigned for your specific block. Our home designer is an architect to ensure that even from the beginning, the design will go on to meet all Building and Australian Standards.
Not strictly engineering, these consultants are critical to the site setout and final product. All our surveyors are accredited with decades of experience.
Also about this time we do a number of site drills to examine the specific site soil. This is critical to the later design of the foundations.
Baxter typically use a waffle pod system. This effectively makes the slab more rigid and therefore stronger.
Underpinning the slab are typically what we call screw piles. Our accredited Civil engineering consultants ensure that the entire structure is certified for the site conditions, soil and home design.
3D analysis allows for detailed modelling of the home structure under both neutral load conditions and more importantly, under the required wind loadings for your specific site. Some sites are windier than others.
Building regulations are constantly evolving and changing. Applicable construction and Australian Standards Baxter work to are as follows:
