Drafting plans for
residential projects is a six-phase process.
Phase 1 Consultation
We talk to you
about what you need and what you want from
your home. We consider function, character,
image, space and all the other factors that
affect how you will live in your home. We do
a site analysis, and determine the scope of
construction, budget and schedule.
Often we find
alternatives to a client’s own ideas that
better utilise space, minimise cost and
provide a more satisfying result.
Phase 2 Design
This is the
brainstorming phase. We develop concept
diagrams and sketches, and provide you with
a number of options to consider.
Phase 3 Re-assessment
We work closely
with you to ensure the design will suit your
lifestyle. Details such as furniture
placement and window and door locations are
looked at in this phase. The necessary
amendments are made and final sketches
Phase 4 Design Development
We produce the
drawings needed for your building permit –
plans, elevations and section drawings, etc.
We translate the construction documentation
and working drawings into the technical
language of the contractor. These drawings
and specifications detail all of the
materials required, where they are to be
located and how they are to be installed. We
ensure that the work meets all the
requirements of the Building Code of
Australia and that local council regulations
Phase 5 Coordination
engineering computations are produced, and
we make all contact with the engineer and
other consultants to assist with any
technical information they may require.
Phase 6 Final
We provide the
building surveyor with all the documentation
needed to obtain your building permit.
