For a solid six months Richard and his team of innovative designers have been working hard to create a new portfolio of 30 concept plans that focus on functionality and form. “During this intensive design period we really challenged ourselves by asking how we could do things better in a cost effective way. The Lincoln show home illustrates a distinctive new style that characterises our ethos which prizes high functionality and unique design above all else.” Due to the popularity of their Prestons show home they adapted the executive style home to accommodate a family lifestyle. “By retaining its elegant contemporary style throughout and the U shaped living area that proved to be the home’s key selling point we’ve received overwhelmingly positive feedback that aligns perfectly with today’s design savvy consumers.” With a firm focus on strong design and high functionality, the Lincoln show home uses natural products like marble and cedar, as well as on-trend painted brick, which provides a unique architectural aspect. Richard explains that its architecturally driven design is evident in standout features like the magnificent vaulted ceilings, which elevates the living area to majestic heights. Energy efficiency is a key component of all Benchmark Homes. Using natural timbers like cedar from a local, sustainable supply, integrating LED lighting, skylights that add warmth and light, clever window placement that maximise all day sun, and a substantially thicker floor underlay, all work together to create modern homes that are both sustainable and economical to run. Quality control and attention to the finer details is what sets Benchmark Homes apart. Since the quakes insurers’ demands on building codes and compliance has helped raised the bar on quality. Producing ‘zero defect homes’ now provides consumers with a higher guarantee on the finish of their build. “The expectation clients have for a new build that’s free of imperfections is becoming more and more achievable. Our project managers take great pride in the work we do and ensure clients are given ample opportunity to assess the quality of the finished product, giving clients the utmost confidence.” While Benchmark Homes has a range of concept plans on offer, these are designed as a starting point for clients and bespoke designs that begin with a client’s brief enable complete creative control with no limitations.
