Our end-to-end Building Design Process

Undertaking a design and construction project can be overwhelming,

so we make the process seamless in five simple steps.

  • 01. CONCEPT DESIGN

    We collaborate with clients to generate a unique architectural design concept that aligns your lifestyle, how you use the space, the site the space will inhabit and relevant council or approving body legislation.

  • 02. DRAFTING

    Turning a concept into a design for construction, we provide comprehensive architectural drafting services including 3D CAD modelling, formal architectural plans and draft approval submissions for council.

  • 03. PLANNING

    In order to make obtaining approval and construction as smooth and hassle-free as possible, our town planners are involved from concept design to building Approval and prepare all documents for Council submission.

  • 04. APPROVALS

    Tapping into the relationships we have built with the local councils and authorities across Sydney, we clear the path to construction by negotiating directly with council or the approving body on your behalf.

  • 05. BUILD

    Once the Approval is obtained and the Builder is selected, it’s time to build. We remain on hand through the construction process for your continual support.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Building Designer?

As the name suggests, Building Designers design buildings! The role of a building designer extends into the design of functional, energy efficient and often beautifully creative homes. Building designers can come from a number of design-related backgrounds. This includes people with degrees and experience in architecture who aren’t officially registered as architects, as well as people who have extensive formal education in any number of design fields.

Do you work with any good Builders that you could recommend?

Over the years, we have built a trusted network of exceptional builders. When it comes time for tender, we will match you to a panel of Construction Companies that we believe will be most suited to your project. All of the builders that we recommend have worked with us before and we trust them to provide you with the level of detail and care that you require.

Do you do commercial work?

Absolutely. Our commercial design projects include cafe’s, bars, gyms, cosmetic studios, events centres, offices, warehouse conversions, lobby redesign. Most of these projects can be viewed on our socials.

Can you give me a ballpark figure for my project?

In general, yes, we can ballpark an estimate for you. Obviously, the more information we have and the further we get through Concept Design and Design Development, the easier it becomes to form a clear picture of costs.

Why invest in design?

The value of good design in today’s world is unprecedented. It impacts everything around us, including how we interact with our spaces and with each other. Good design can deliver better experiences, make our lives easier and solve real problems. As one of the most important investments you will ever make, it stands to reason that savvy homeowners would not leave the concept and formation of this valuable asset to chance. Clever, thoughtful design is a must.
