Feasibility Studies 

  • Look at client requirements for potential development opportunities in particular a unit development site
  • Investigate options to best suit the clients budget requirements and project outcomes
  • Prepare a written report to assess the viability of the site for potential development

Conceptual Designs

  • Prepare concept plans based upon client brief and/or ideas to better understand the overall design building project.

  • At concept stage we like to investigate building costs so as budgets can be determined early in the design process

  • Prepare initial drawings for statutory planning pre-application meetings
  • Report and prepare required documentation for planning submission

Design & Development

  • On more complex designs it is required to prepare design and development documents to enable construction details to be clarified and building regulations complied with.
  • In particular modern or contemporary designed residences need this type of design work, especially in the more built up areas and inner suburban locations

Working Drawings

  • Our working drawings are split into 2 stages, Standard Working Drawings and Optional Working Drawings
  • The reason we do this is to give clients options and in some cases budgets restrict how much design work can be done to keep within clients financial control

    • Standard Working Drawings
      • Site plan
      • Existing conditions plan and demolition
