FAQ ABOUT US

 

1. Site Assessments

 

Swarup, Founder AuArchitecture  assessed many hundreds of potential  development sites  for dual occupancy, townhouse, apartment, commercial and industrial developments. He will tell you what you need to know and not what you want to hear!

 

2. Rapport with Council town planning  officers

 

Our founder and his support team have built up a great relationship with  Council's  Planning Officers. It's the old saying- it's not only what you know that matters but also whom you know. 

 

3. Exemplary design and town planning delivery

 

We are trained in architecture and will expeditiously deliver real time, high calibre design and  town planning solutions  at critical meetings.  Our founder is a Registered Planner and belongs to the Australian Institute of Architects. He is also a Member of the Victorian Planning and Environmental Law Association and the Planning Institute of Australia.

AuArchitecture is supported by a team of Registered Building Professionals and a Registered Architect.

 

4. Negotiate with other Statutory Authorities

 

Swarup successfully negotiated with  other authorities who are equally powerful when it comes to obtaining a Planning approval consent for a dual occupancy or residential development. Negotiating successfully with the key authorities who control the roads like VicRoad. Melbourne Water  or the CFA will determine whether you receive  a Planning Permit or not. 

 

5. Teamwork for project completion

 

We have considerable experience working with the other professionals who will come together to deliver your project. Professionals like consulting  architects or designers, engineers from the structural, civil (drainage), hydraulics, acoustics, traffic or fire disciplines or land surveyors and building surveyor to name a few category of experts one will need to deal with to complete a dual occupancy or residential or commercial property development. In some projects, we retained a large heritage facade and adapted it into a commercial office which required thorough co ordination with the structural engineer and demolition contractor. In other instances we built on poor soil having to screw down 6m  to reach  bearing capacity for the foundations.That required a strong understanding of geotechnical knowledge.

 

6. Property development experience

 

We understand development finance and development feasibility which will determine if you will make a profit or not. Our Founder has put his  own money where his mouth is and developed property taking all the risks you are about to encounter in your dual occupancy development. Beware of armchair academics. In our first dual occupancy project we presented to a full Council meeting to obtain a Planning Permit against the wishes of the objectors and Council's planning officers. We have  considerable experience in residential developments, apartments, commercial, industrial, health, retail projects to name a few disciplines.

But residential is where the heart lies.

 

7. VCAT appearance

 

Our founder has  appealed refusals or defended appeals by objectors at the  VCAT. If your designer or architect/planner can't successfully win at the VCAT they might not understand case law and precedence set at VCAT. Very often Council's  Planning Managers will rely on that type of information when deciding whether to grant a Planning Permit or not.

 

8. Integrity

 

And  the  most critical element we openly offer are the matters of honesty, integrity, credibility, professionalism, ethics, being equitable and passionate. We will tell you what chance of success your project will have upfront, so that we both don't waste time. One promise I make is that we will do all the hard work personally to obtain a successful outcome

 

 

 And finally- The Promise                 

 

We will stick with you from the first time we meet and do our utmost to  make your Town Planning Application successful so that you can go on to obtain the Building Permit and build your dream property development. We can be there from cradle to completion.

 

"Planning Regulations are continually changing. A Planning refusal might mean the second time  you apply, your new Application you could face much  tougher rules.  Get it right the first time!"

AuArchitecture will gladly donate  design and planning services  to charitable organisations worldwide. Contact us.

We would love to serve you through smart and beautiful  designs for your dream house, dual occupancy, townhouse or apartment projects or commercial and industrial buildings which makes  a difference.

I recall doing a

  • large multi unit  residential design with a sky-street on the fifth level for the kids to play in safety while  creating  a real sense of community living and  

  • a modular home design which grew with the family budget rather like a series of plug in components and 

  • the windmill house with views where each stair landing led to a different view and function and

  • right down to designing and obtaining planning permits for practical traditional designs to meet the family  or developer's budget and objectives.

Our Founder has  worked on hundreds of development sites for dual occupancy and townhouses. He worked on commercial, health, education, retail and leisure projects to name a few other disciplines.

Our professional designs are flexible to suit your vision and realistic to meet your budget.
