FIND THE BEST PEOPLE
It is about searching until we find the people who share our love for building houses as well as they can be built.
That’s what Bellevarde is—a team of us who just want to build extraordinary houses. It is an attitude that can’t be driven or constrained by external factors. It’s innate.
KEEP ON LEARNING
Everything we have learned in building some of this country’s most complex and challenging houses is formalised in our 200 page Bellevarde Construction Manual. It details step-by-step instructions on how best to perform every critical task.
It is on every site and is constantly reviewed and updated as our knowledge grows and as building techniques, materials, equipment, and technologies, evolve.
FORM A BUILDING TEAM
It takes three key players to make a great house: Owner, Architect and Builder. That is why on each site we form them into a Building Team headed by our site manager.
The trio meets regularly to review, discuss and guide every aspect of the project. This ensures everyone knows just where we are, where we are going next—and ensures that together the Team can make the best decisions.
It is the best way to deliver an extraordinary house, of good value that brings great joy to all of us.
MAINTAIN THE HOUSE
This came from our owners. They asked us to take care of their houses as well as we built them. So we formed our own specialised Bellevarde Maintenance division. It benefits from access to all information on the construction of the house. Plus we can often call on the very tradespeople who built it.
Each new house has its own Maintenance Manager. According to our owners and architects, we deliver the most efficient and skilled maintenance operation they have ever worked with—indeed several have asked us to take care of other properties we didn’t build.
