Property Subdivision: the Building Process

We have documented, managed and been involved with the building stages for dual ocupancy homes, townhouse projects, apartments, retail and commercial, health, education to name a few disciplines.

Once your Town Planning Approval for your dual occ townhouse is in place, our registered drafting team will start the building permit documentation. Those documents include:

Architectural working drawings

Soil report

Structural engineering

Civil (drainage) engineering

Energy report

other reports as required

The Building stage for a residential project like a dual occupancy can be broken into the following stages:

  • Preconstruction

  • Construction preliminaries

  • Base Stage

  • Frame Stage

  • Lockup

  • Fix

  • Completion

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.
