Our process for design and delivery of residential projects combines a full scope architectural design service with construction delivery services. Our services include:

 

Proposal  
We undertake a preliminary assessment of your project requirements and provide you with an opinion of likely construction cost and a fee proposal for design services.

Project Assessment (if required) 
For more complex projects we undertake a more detailed review of your site and/or specific project requirements. This may include structural checks for second story additions, assessment of authority requirements, review of access logistics or construction methodology.

Schematic Design 
During this stage we collaborate with our clients to develop a design brief for the project. We then explore various options to develop a site specific design response. We advise you of the external consultant requirements necessary to complete your project. We prepare a preliminary cost estimate based on your preferred design.

 

Town Planning (if required)
We work with you to identify and obtain necessary approvals required for your project

Design Development  
We develop your preferred design to include internal and external elevations and work with you to select finishes, materials, fittings and fixtures. We prepare an updated cost estimate reflective of the developed design.

Documentation
We prepare architectural documentation required for the building permit/ construction certificate and manage completion of project documentation by the broader project team including structural engineer, energy assessor, building surveyor and other professional consultants, as required.

Construction
We complete factory construction and site based building works as necessary to deliver your project.
