OUR ARCHITECTURAL PROCESS – START TO FINISH
Creating beautiful spaces takes a very specific process
Sticking to a clearly defined process means that we can spend more time being creative, making sure that we deliver a result that brings pleasure to all.
Our process has been used and continually improved over 25 years, ensuring your project runs smoothly, expectations are met, and everyone is aware of who is doing what at each stage.
The Concept Design stage tests and translates your project brief into strategies and sketches, giving your project clear direction, personality and added value. We listen intently and ask questions to better understand you, your site, and the priorities of your project.
We subject your Concept Design to a more comprehensive level of analysis and refinement. We translate the concept into a Developed Design by assessing function, structure, aesthetics, practicality and buildability.
TOWN PLANNING APPLICATION
We consider planning requirements from the start of the design process, reducing the likelihood of Council imposing changes, and helping to make the entire planning permit process run more smoothly.
We prepare a comprehensive set of technical drawings and specifications suitable for obtaining building approval, builders’ costings, and for construction. This leads to more accurate quotes, reduces the risk of costly surprises, and means better results during construction.
This stage allows us to identify the best builder for your very specific project needs. This process allows us to understand a builder’s suitability and commitment to your project by looking closely at their capabilities, costs and timeframes to best suit you and your project.
During the course of the construction of your project, we provide checks and measures to make sure that your project is being constructed the way it has been designed. These measures also reduce the risk of budget and time blowouts.
