How I Help You
No matter what stage of the process you are at, I offer a range of professional services to help you create the best building design solution for your project.
On Site Design Consultations
In some cases you may not be ready for a Concept Design or Construction plans just yet. Many people are just looking to have a bit a chat and find out some information about the potential of their home or project. I provide an On Site Design Consultation to help you understand the possibilities of your project and the best way to move forward.
On an On Site Design Consultation will include :
A 1 Hour On Site Design Meeting
A Property Report
Hand Drawn Sketches
A Comprehensive Design Proposal
Concept Design & Construction Drawings
This is the exciting part. This is where we talk in depth about your goals, wishes, and concerns to determine a detailed project brief. From here we move to the Concept Design Stage creating the perfect design solution. I will listen to exactly what you are after, then provide my own professional input while working along side you to arrive at the best outcome your over the moon about. My Design Stage includes a set number of Design revisions initially (this is usually enough) with fees and options to continue revising the design as much as you like after that.
Once a Preliminary Concept Design has been approved we move to Construction Drawings. This is where I produce the architectural plans detailing how the project is to be constructed as per the Australian Building Code and all relevant Australian Standards. The Construction Drawings are used by your Engineer, Builder and Building Certifier to provide the Building Certification for your project. This is also where we confirm the details of your project from window sizes, to floor finishes and construction specifications.
Council Approval & Building Certifications
The Council Approval and Certification Process can seem daunting. The abundance of information and advice can prove confusing (sometimes even to those in the industry).
I alleviate the confusion by providing advice throughout the planning and design process to ensure we successfully navigate your project from concept through to approvals. I work along side trusted Consultants, Town Planners and Building Certifier’s where required, to produce a successful outcome. I will be honest from day one about the possibilities and risks involved with your project throughout the approval process, to ensure you clearly understand what is required and how we proceed with your goals in mind.
I will manage the application process for you. I deal with Council, Required Consultants and Building Certifier’s on your behalf, while you relax and focus on whats important.
Engineering & Required Consultants
Architectural Drawings are the first step in producing a tailored Building Design Solution. Depending on the size and scope of your project, in most cases additional consultants will be required to achieve council and/or building approvals. Some examples are Structural Engineering, Land Survey, Energy Rating etc..
I work along side trusted consultant’s with whom I have a built a working relationship with. I will ensure you are well looked after with quality work and competitive quotes. I collate all drawings and reports to achieve all relevant approvals for your project. Rest easy knowing you are in good hands, without having to spend the time and effort finding the right people for your project.
I will also happily work along side any consultants you wish to involve in the project if you have a personal preference.
Build Quotes & Construction Tender
Finding the right builder can sometimes be an exhausting and time consuming process. Trying to find the right combination of pricing, professionalism and scheduling in your builder will in most cases prove to be a difficult and lengthy process. I provide a professional solution to this problem by working along side a Builder Agent who will review your project and recommend the most trusted and experienced builders who are right for the job. With a comprehensive tendering process you will be aquainted with a small selection of fully insured builders who are hand picked for your project.
I am also a firm believer in utilising build costs and construction estimates in the early stages of your project to ensure we arrive at a custom building design solution that is aligned with your budget. Utilising preliminary cost estimates and build quotes throughout the design process, will produce a design you are over the moon about but also have the means to build.
3D RENDERINGS & PRESENTATION BROCHURES
Sometimes 2D Plans are not enough. You need a little something more to visualise your project, either for your own reference, or to present would be buyers and investors for your project.
With years of experience as a 3D Renderer and Graphic Artist I can provide the following presentation solutions for your project in Web or Print Format:
Photo Realistic Exterior and Interior 3D Renders, showing building forms, spacial layouts, materials and finishes as specified by you. This provides a clear, concise and realistic presentation of your building in its final form.
2D Presentation Floor Plan’s and Site Plan’s showing the spacial layout of your design with calculated floor areas and relevant information put together in an attractive and easy to understand format.
Web or Print Brochures for client presentations, investors and real estate buyers.
With a passion for all things Graphic and Design related, I will work along side you and your goals to produce a compelling presentation solution that show’s you the final product, or sets you apart in the market place.
