Innovation, Design and Modern Engineering with SLR Concepts Building and Construction

01 07 2 Valley Drive Rye - 002

For many, the new home they have purchased has been a formula build. Look down the street – many similar vistas. Not the case with SLR Concepts Building and Construction. SLR Concepts and their team are innovative, looking to take advantage of modern engineering and construction. In a word, what this enables is – Space.

On many formula builds, the garage is incorporated into the floor plan – definitely a use of valuable space. SLR Concepts have a unique tried and true solution; simply excavate and create an underground garage. Add a car stacker and this can provide much needed space for living areas. No cars in the driveway, no overflowing garage. Rather it creates room for a much larger living area, an outdoor entertaining area or even a home theatre.

Many formula homes and older constructions require load bearing internal walls. Again this imposes on space availability, overall comfort and simple things like light and airflow. Today, with the use of structural steel or specially formed composite timber bearers, it’s possible to create entirely spacious interiors, interiors designed for living, not building requirements.

Innovation means giving thought to your indoor outdoor living arrangements. Opening up your kitchen/living areas to a full outdoor living area with its own kitchen, barbecue and entertainment areas is simply magic. Bifold doors, sliding glass feature windows – and a full kitchen garden with herbs and seasonal vegetables available all year round? At SLR Concepts it’s simply the art of the possible.

Get off the grid with a full solar system with battery storage. It’s now possible. A water saving system that supplies your pool, your garden, your spa and toilets, yes it really can be done. Relax in a toasty warm living area in winter with full climate control – heating and cooling. Solar driven, cost effective. Internal blinds and shutters all operational on voice command with a full household data system. Is this the future? Yes, but it’s now.

The Beachside Retreat – Modernise? – Is it time to rebuild for your retirement residence?

St Andrews Beach 65 Paradise Dr029

It was back in the 1990s. The house was barely 2 streets from the beach. It had established trees, 3 bedrooms, a big backyard for cricket, barbecues and waxing the longboards on the grass. It’s been absolutely fabulous for the entire family as they’ve grown up, but now they’re off starting out life with their own families and it’s the grandchildren visiting the beach house. It’s time to look to the future – with retirement looming in the not too distant future, it’s time to consider ‘me time’.

In fact, many people may be considering an early retirement with the current circumstances. With full equity in the beachside property and the suburban family home, a sea-change rebuild is a definite possibility.

03 St Andrews Beach 65 Paradise Dr026

Many homes on the Mornington Peninsula, from Dromana to Rye and on the other side from Hastings to Merricks, were specifically built as ‘Holiday homes’ only. Fibro, weatherboard, Log cabins or Red Cedar – they simply don’t stand the test of time. There is no value in considering a ‘renovation’.

04 St Andrews Beach 65 Paradise Dr018

But sometimes a major re-build and extension, or a knock-down and a completely new construction offers spectacular opportunities. Many such properties enjoy fabulous positions with panoramic views. Why not take full advantage of the property and rebuild with large feature windows and bi-fold doors, indoor/outdoor living areas, climate control, solar energy and water-saving systems? Oh, and definitely a spa, a pool and an outdoor kitchen barbecue area – this is going to be your ‘forever home’. Why not ensure it’s the very best of what’s available and what’s possible?

Lifestyle – with SLR Concepts. Build for the Future – Build for Living.

01 4 Hillcroft Ave Hampton - 012

For many people there are decisions to be made regarding the future. It’s time to take control of your future and the lifestyle you choose to live. For people who own property or have strong equity in their homes, now is the time to consider the direction you wish to take. Do you renovate and refresh? Demolish and rebuild? – or do you utilise your land location and its value to ‘value add’ by building Apartments, Townhouses or a unit complex on Strata Title?

02 4 Hillcroft Ave Hampton - 011

Often it will depend upon your location. For many older dwellings on Melbourne’s Bayside, the buildings – 3 bedroom, brick veneer and weatherboard homes – are simply not worth renovating or extending. These were ‘formula’ builds and often there are large estates of similar homes. These properties though are often situated on larger blocks. Local planning laws have changed in the last 10-15 years enabling Strata Title developments. For those with an eye on the future, this can be the ticket to your Seachange or Treechange dream home.

Arrange a consultation with SLR Concepts and explore the opportunities you may be able to avail yourself of for you and your family. Careful planning, a sensible timeline and budget, a market that is receptive to the finished project – apartments, townhouses and units – it’s a definite pathway.

Alternatively, for people in superb locations the pull is often to extend and modernise. Your home may be heritage listed in Albert Park, Brighton or Black Rock. In such cases there is a need to protect the Heritage features and the inherent capital value, but also to provide comfortable living, real space and modern accessories. Solar, Water Saving and Energy Efficiency – SLR Concepts have a strong track record in completing such projects to the satisfaction of their clients as well as meeting all Heritage requirements.


Then there are those ready to make the move, the big ‘seachange’ or ‘treechange’. This will be their ‘forever’ home and it must provide space, comfort and more than a little luxury. Your builder must have vision, skill and real craftsmanship to achieve the dream home you desire. It must take full advantage of its location, position and the panorama presented.

For real experience, a verifiable track record in performance at all levels of building and construction, you must call SLR Concepts for a free no-obligation consultation. Call 03 5981 0661 or leave your details here for a prompt reply. Schedule an appointment that suits your needs and timing. Meet on site – or virtually via Skype, WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.

The time though is now. Start the process. Choose the future you really desire and plan with SLR Concepts Building and Construction.

Apartment Living – Government program lifts applications for housing loans (pre Covid-19)

09 201 202 of 63 Hawdon Street Heidelberg - 009

The current situation is acknowledged as being likely temporary in that the demand for new homes and apartments will not subside when the ‘Lockdown’ is over – if employment can be stabilised.

The Housing Industry Association media release sets out the pre Covid landscape realistically.

6 May 2020


Finance for New Homes Strong Before COVID-19

“The number of loans to owner occupiers for the purchase or construction of a new home rose by 3.1 per cent in the March 2020 quarter compared to the December quarter and was 13.2 per cent higher than the same time last year,” commented HIA Chief Economist, Tim Reardon.

The ABS today released monthly data tracking lending activity including lending within the residential property market – for both new and existing homes purchased by owner occupiers, investors and businesses.

“These results, along with other leading indicators such as new home sales and building approvals data, continue to confirm that the housing market had reached a turning point mid-way through 2019, providing further evidence that the housing market, pre-COVID-19, was heading into 2020 looking upwards,” said Mr Reardon.

“First home buyers have continued to be active in the market, with the number of loans increasing by 3.6 per cent during the March 2020 quarter, to be 20.6 per cent higher than the March 2019 quarter.

“First home buyers accounted for 37 per cent of the market, the highest proportion since November 2009.

“Investor lending was down slightly during the March quarter (down by 1.3 per cent) compared to the December quarter but this result is still 6.5 per cent higher than same time last year.

“These results show that up to the end of March, we were looking at solid home building activity across most regions in 2020,” concluded Mr Reardon.

Across the states, the value of loans to owner-occupiers during the March quarter 2020 was higher than the December 2019 quarter in Western Australia (5.7 per cent), Tasmania (5.0 per cent), The Northern Territory (4.6 per cent), New South Wales (4.1 per cent), Victoria (3.8 per cent), Queensland (3.4 per cent) and the Australian Capital Territory (1.0 per cent). Lending declined over this period by 1.1 per cent in South Australia.



A good example of the type of dwellings young, first homeowners may consider is our SLR project in Woodbine Grove, Chelsea. First home buyers now need only 50% for the required deposit. As such for many young Professionals and skilled workers, Apartment living offers an attractive proposition.

Strata plan developments – Apartment complexes, Townhouse developments, Units and similar constructions now represent a sound investment proposition for eligible property owners.

SLR Concepts Building and Construction have a solid industry track record in the construction and completion of such projects.
