Build Process

To ensure the process is a simple one, we’ve outlined your whole journey right up to handing over the keys to your new home.  Keeping you well informed and on track from the very beginning is as important for us as it is for you.

At Orbit we understand that what is second nature to us may be new for you, which is why we’ve made the process as transparent and straight forward as possible. Follow our step by step guide to ensure that you stay informed at every point along your building journey.
