STEP 1

Initial design meeting

The first step is for us to gather and evaluate all of the information necessary to design your new home. At this meeting, we explore your needs, objectives and your budget. We consider things such as function, size and relationship between spaces, character and image, and a host of other considerations that affect how you will live in your new home. It is an opportunity for us to get to know you and your family’s needs and wants. Getting to know you is important. Your home should be a reflection of not only who you are, but where you want to be.

Gathering necessary information

We will need to gather and evaluate all of the information necessary to create a concept design of your new home. This step may include our team obtaining necessary property and land searches, geotechnical and topographical reports. The purpose of this is to ensure that the land you propose to build on is suitable.

STEP 3

Concept Design

Once we have all the necessary information, we are ready to create a concept design of your new home. During this step we have a look at your site and determine the best placement of your new home.  We also research and study relevant strategic and statutory planning codes necessary to build on your site. Throughout this step, concept diagrams and rough sketches of your new home are created and refined until we create a final concept design to your satisfaction and approval.

Staying on budget

With a final concept design in tow, our estimator will put together a cost estimate for your new home.  If required, we will look at ways of refining the concept design of your new home to fit within your budget.

STEP 5

Final design

We will submit the concept design to the local authorities, as you will require a planning permit before finalising the design of your new home. Once we receive a planning permit, we will then start to prepare working drawings and specifications, which are necessary documents translated into the technical language required for the building and construction phase.  The concept design of your new home, will no longer be just a concept, but will begin to become a reality.
