Innovation and Modern Engineering mean Real Space, Comfort and Security with SLR Concepts.


In building and construction these days it is the clever and ingenious use of space that creates the standout projects and results. SLR Concepts Building and Construction are one of Victoria’s leading innovators in creating the ultimate in modern living.


Often a major component taking up valuable living space is the ‘garage’. Today many formula home builders continue the practice of the 1980s and 1990s incorporating the ‘garage’ as part of the overall building plan.


On a number of recent projects, SLR Concepts have utilised clever engineering to create underground garages and car spaces, in some cases incorporating car-stackers on strata plan projects (Apartments, Units).

At a recent project on Valley Drive in Rye, the SLR team incorporated Driven Sheet Pile Walling, enabling a much larger building to be constructed in what could be described as a difficult site. The result? Simply magnificent!

The idea in such innovation is to give homeowners spacious and comfortable living quarters. Utilising structural steel in some cases provides a much larger roof span, as do customised roof trusses. What this means for the occupants is no more ‘box like’ living areas. The building is no longer reliant on internal walls and ancillary components for structural support.

Add to this the latest in technological innovation. Climate control can be implemented right throughout the dwelling – Control units dialling up your desired heating or cooling. Internal and external blinds and shutters, bifold doors, all operated on voice control. All powered via a state of the art solar system – economical and environmentally responsible.

Swimming pools, lap pools and spas placed strategically for your use and comfort. The pool on a recent project at St Andrew’s Beach is fully suspended above the ground, with a glass feature cut-away and a magnificent view of the ocean. Water saving technology can be used to maintain the pools and spas by topping up with harvested water from the buildings – an entirely sustainable proposition.

But it doesn’t end there. Your new home features indoor/outdoor living at its finest. Living areas open seamlessly onto decking, balconies and full outdoor kitchens and barbecues. Open the bifold or sliding doors onto a magnificent vista. With data systems incorporated, be entertained throughout the home as you wish.

Why settle for less when you can experience the very best? Whether by the bay or ocean or simply a tree lined vista, this is the right choice for your lifestyle and your future. Or alternatively, when located closer to the city, make the most of your property and its margins where space is at a premium.

The Time is Right – Build for the Future with SLR Concepts.

The current Covid-19 lockdown has seen the strongest government response in Australia’s history to any crisis. As such, support for business and individuals will continue for some time. As well, the Federal Government now offers first home buyers a new scheme that is making first home ownership more achievable for young people by providing finance on deposits of up to 50%.

What does this mean for current homeowners and potential retirees looking to convert their major asset into stronger liquidity for the future? It means that the market for apartments, units and townhouses is becoming much stronger than has been previously experienced. To date, Real Estate clearances have not been severely impacted by the lockdown in Melbourne, and may well not be.

As such there is strong opportunity to capitalise on many existing properties suitable for strata development. In areas where housing stock was constructed during the mid-century period onwards (from 1945 up until 1990) there are large blocks with older properties simply not suitable for renovation. This can be due to deterioration of the building, the actual layout (3 bedroom weatherboard for example) or simply an inadequate return on investment if renovated. Many of these older homes are now being sold at or about ‘land value’ only.

This is where there is opportunity. In many areas of Bayside Melbourne, South Eastern Melbourne, Eastern Melbourne and on the Mornington Peninsula, zoning changes now permit ‘Strata Development’. This means it is permissible to build Apartments, Units and Townhouses on these blocks with all council approvals. Dual Occupancy is another option in areas where restrictions are tighter.

What this can mean for the property owner is a capitalisation of their primary asset – the family home. Rather than a simple sale reaping low rewards on an unrenovated property, here is an opportunity to make substantial profits.

Seachange or Treechange? A vision for the future with SLR Concepts.


With time for reflection, it’s worth considering the possibilities available to property owners to assist in creating a more enjoyable living space to improve your home, and potentially its capitalisation with genuine improvement on your primary asset – the family home.


Whilst spending time at home during these uncertain times, often the inadequacies of your living situation become very obvious. Older homes can be quite claustrophobic. Most rarely extend over 30 squares in size, the majority being between 20-25 squares.


With many middle aged Australians having generally paid the majority of their current mortgage or owning their homes outright, it’s an excellent time to consider what opportunities lay ahead for them.


Many older homes constructed from 1950 to 1990 are valued at land value plus. This means the actual dwelling has depreciated in value over the years whilst the land value has generally accelerated and increased.


When retirement is in sight, say in the next 10 years, it’s really sensible to start considering how you wish to live for those Golden Years.

For many, it’s going to be a ‘Seachange’ or ‘Treechange’ decision. A new home with all the benefits of modern engineering, building and construction. Climate controlled with central heating and cooling. A data driven home with multi-media and electronic controls. Spacious with large bi-fold doors, feature windows and magnificent views. Lap pools, swimming pools and a spa. Big open bathrooms with feature stone finishes. And a magnificent indoor/outdoor living area with spacious kitchen, outdoor barbecue and glorious space to move in and enjoy.

But to achieve this, your current family home must be marketed. Will it achieve the return you require to build your dream home amongst the trees or by the bay? What is the best strategy to maximise your return? It could be some simple renovations if the home is suitable. In other cases, it may require a full knock-down, a demolition.

Where feasible, based on property equity and ownership, suitability and local bylaws, there is a possibility of constructing Town House enclaves, Apartments or Strata Units, thus greatly magnifying your financial return.

Easter – The Holiday Home – Now is the time to plan for the future.

St Andrews Beach 65 Paradise Dr028 (2) 2anim

With the Easter Holiday upon us we would normally be heading to the beach or countryside for the annual Easter Break – the last respite before winter sets in. But not this year – for many it’s simply remain at home and continue with ‘self isolation’ – a time to reflect.

St Andrews Beach 65 Paradise Dr004.jpg

There is a real opportunity here. As the restrictions are removed no doubt we will again enjoy the family beach house and outdoors again. But right now is a very good time to plan for the next decade and refurbish, renovate or renew your beach residence or rural retreat.

Many homes with beachside locations and views on the Mornington Peninsula are of a vintage that cries out for complete renovation or renewal. Holiday homes built in the 1950s, ‘60s or ‘70s probably do not meet normal building standards required today.

St Andrews Beach 65 Paradise Dr008

That’s the bad news. The good news is that a coastal block with ocean views is a very valuable asset, Bayside even more so.

Look to the future. Is this to be your place to refresh and renew and to ultimately retire to? Is it up to standard?

St Andrews Beach 65 Paradise Dr015.jpg

If the answer is no, then its a great time to contact SLR Concepts Building and Construction to commence either a renovation or a full rebuild program.

With an enforced break upon us it’s a great time to re-assess, to investigate, to plan. Spending time at home, it becomes obvious sometimes that there is definitely a better alternative.

4 Hillcroft Ave Hampton - 011

For many their current family homes were constructed from the 1950s to the 1980s. Rooms were built with structural integrity in mind and were often smaller – box like, small windows, low light, no heating or cooling other than in the main living areas. Often homes are built on very large blocks as was the custom at the time.

2 136 Warrandyte Rd Ringwood - 022

Where the property has been owned for decades there are remarkable opportunities to update to more modern living. Older homes were often 20sq in total size or smaller. Modern homes are rarely less than 50-60 sqs these days. Older homes are single storey, newer homes are often double storey or multi level.

The big question is always ‘where do I start?’ It’s a good question and it’s the right time to seek expert advice. All properties are different. Locations call into play local Government zoning and regulations, but there are innumerable options. One or more will suit your needs perfectly.

SLR Concepts Building and Construction have experience, expertise and competency in a wide range of domestic and commercial building projects.

For some their options will be to extend, to renovate, perhaps add another storey. For a family with children in primary school and a decade of education to come this is often the most sensible option. For others, it’s the opposite circumstances. Their family have completed their education and left home. The family home offers significant challenges in its maintenance and the huge block requires constant attention. With thoughts of retirement, lifestyle changes, ‘seachange’ or ‘tree change’, what are the options?

3 Irving Box Hill - 007.jpg

These are all possibilities across Melbourne where the property is a larger, older block and local government statutes permit such developments. For many it can provide a passage to their ‘forever home’, their ‘Shangri-La’, a beautiful new modern home beachside or in a semi rural tree change location.
