Design Process

We believe you should be across every aspect of designing your project, so we’ve condensed the way we work down to three no-nonsense steps…

1. Concept

  • Obtain client brief, preferably at in-studio meeting, sign contract of engagement and take deposit
  • Assess site condition and constraints at site visit and online
  • Initial enquiries with local council/authorities
  • Preliminary selection of materials and finishes

2. Development

  • Begin the initial design and generate floor plans and elevations
  • Provide schedule of proposed materials such as cladding, render etc
  • Client reviews proposed design and drawings
  • Incorporate client feedback in drawings
  • Client approval of proposed design and drawings
  • Confirm statutory and council requirements

3. DA & Construction Docs

  • Finalise Draft Drawings including floor plans, elevations and sections
  • Prepare specifications and schedules in accordance with drawings
  • Compile BASIX and Statement of Environmental Effects documentaion
  • Lodge Development Application (if required)
  • Complete specifications for Construction Drawings
  • Client approval of Construction Drawings and final payment
  • Issue Construction Drawings and hand over to client
