Architecture for a Property Subdivision

Design Consultation Brief. After your are satisfied with the new building footprint / built form concept, we will meet you onsite. This confidential meeting covers detailed project and design brief. We tell you what you need to know to succeed and not just what you want to hear to get a quick sale! That way, you do not end up with any disappointments. Honesty and Integrity is our strength.

  • Site Feature and Level (F&L) Survey.

  • A registered surveyor will go onsite to do a feature and levels survey of the building site to our detailed specifications taking into account fences, large trees, drainage, pits, adjacent properties, views, local features and streetscape which helps in the Town Planning Application submission. A 're-establishment survey' is required to identify the site boundaries. We wil engage a surveyor on your behalf if you don't have one.

  • Feasibility Study.

  • This is done on a thumb rule basis to let you know what costs you may incur. We suggest you verifying these numbers at working drawing stage when your builder gives you a build quote.

  • Preliminary Design Development.

  • Based on our design brief meeting we prepare preliminary concept sketches suitable for subsequent detailed development.

  • Town Planning Application Drawings.

  • After approval of concept design, the preparation of town planning drawings and reports are prepared for planning application submission.

  • Planning Submissions to Council.

  • We lodge the relevant application forms, plans and reports. Upon request by Council, erect site signs and carry out any other activities necessary to complete the statutory advertising requirements (if not carried out by the Council)

  • Post Town Planning submission.

  • Council will often send a Request for Further Information (RFI) correspondence where some design modifications or design clarification is required. We will respond to these and keep you in the loop. That is why it may save time not to get too detailed in the initial submission and those details may be incorporated at the RFI stage.

  • After the Application is advertised, Council makes a decision and requires certain conditions are met. We do those drawing amendments if required which are called satisfying Planning Permit Conditions..

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

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.

We advise you must seek legal and financial advice prior to making a commitment on any property development venture. The opinions we provide are general in nature.
