There are many aspects involved in building a house. Once you’ve selected a stand on the Estate, consultation with your appointed Project Manager begins.

First, we will evaluate your stand and determine the home’s ideal placement, size and orientation. Thereafter, the team appoints an architect and oversees the entire design process from concept to submission and approval from the municipality and HOA.

Once plans have been approved, we guide you to start choosing specifications for your dream home. Due to the volume of homes under the supervision of Val de Vie Construction, the team negotiates top quality finishes as preferential rates. In addition, diligent budget control, navigating potential construction challenges, adhering to timelines and determining overall feasibility are all taken care of by our team.

We understand the Val de Vie Estate lifestyle and take great care ensuring we incorporate our clients’ expectations and plans for their dream home.
Our team is well-versed in the aesthetic guidelines and HOA building standards of the Estate, which means that plans are submitted once, saving time and money.

As part of the Val de Vie group of companies we are committed to the same level of excellence that has long been associated with the Val de Vie brand.

Our team delivers a personal service to our clients during the building process. Regular site visits are scheduled with clients and they are furnished with a weekly progress report.

Val de Vie Construction offers a seamless journey from conceptualisation to key handover, and thereafter. We have an impeccable after-sales track record of assisting clients with any construction-related issues that might arise after occupation of the home.

We build beautiful homes in The Valley of Life.
