When it comes to designing a building, the foundations are the most important part of the whole building, as everything is built on top. It’s very expensive and difficult to change the foundations once you have started building on top. It’s much easier to make changes when it’s simply lines on a plan. That is why we have created our Masterplan Concept Only design package.
The Masterplan Concept Only design package is a partial design service that combines our pre-design services with Masterplan Sketch Design. We will establish your scope of work and a fee proposal for the Masterplan Concept Only service, then our architects will put pen to paper and create your unique architectural concept design in Step 2 Masterplan Sketch Design. This will ensure that you have good foundations at the beginning of your architectural journey to the home of your dreams.
Our Masterplan Concept Only design package provides Pre-Design and Masterplan Sketch Design services. If you are renovating, our additional Measured Drawings service will be required prior to design. For both renovations and new builds, a Site Survey by a consulting Surveying firm will also need to be undertaken.
Just like a surgeon not operating without a diagnosis, it’s vital that you undertake proper research and analysis prior to design. This package provides clarity for clients who require a concept drawing and costings, allowing them to make better choices in the planning of their project.
This package suits anyone looking for guidance of how to organise what they need and/or want, and is unsure of what budget is required to execute their project. Alternatively, someone who wants initial planning and costings for future works would also benefit from this package.
The Masterplan Concept Only design package includes a Low Commitment Consultation and a hand-drawn Masterplan Concept Sketch Design. It does not include Steps 3-6 of our 6 Step Process.
As mentioned in Option A.1 Masterplan Concept Only, the beginning of the design is the most important time for laying down the foundations of the project. But it’s also important that you have a developed design to ensure your project ideas are fully resolved before any building starts. It’s easier to make changes before the builder is on site. Therefore our Masterplan Concept to Plans design package is perfect for people who have a degree of confidence and expertise in building projects, specifying details, those with simple projects, or anyone with experience in managing builders and the building process.
We will establish your scope of work and provide a fee proposal for the Masterplan Concept to Plans services in Step 1 – Pre-Design. Then, through Steps 2 to 4, we will create and develop a fully resolved architectural design with a preliminary costing and approval documents.
Our Masterplan Concept to Plans design package provides a partial design service where we will provide you with an initial sketch design, indicative costing, developed design drawings including 3D visuals, and development and building approval documents. We can also provide interior and landscape design services if desired. If you are renovating, our additional Measured Drawings service will be required. For both renovations and new builds, a Site Survey by a consulting Surveying firm will also need to be undertaken.
It’s important that you undertake an exploration of your options and develop your design before you get official approvals and begin building. Therefore, this package provides you with an integrated design solution and set of approval documents that can be taken to your chosen builder.
This package suits builders, boutique developers, homeowners that have worked with their chosen builder before, people with experience in building projects, or those with projects that are of a simple nature.
This Masterplan Concept to Plans Design Package includes a Low Commitment Consultation, Masterplan Sketch Design, Design Development and Approval Applications. This service does not include Steps 5 or 6 of our 6 Step Process.
The best design process is one that incorporates extensive research and analysis at the beginning to ensure no changes are made in the costly building stages. When you engage us for our full service service you are guaranteeing that you have the best design for your lifestyle with the correct documentation and the best building quotes.
Our Masterplan Concept to Keys design package, our full design service, is where your design is developed and refined down to the finest detail, leaving no guesswork for the builder and no potential for shortcuts or omissions. Commencing with our Step 1 Pre-Design Service we will establish your scope of work and a fee proposal for the Masterplan Concept to Keys services. Then, through Steps 2 to 6, we create a fully detailed architectural design, approval and construction documents, with our tender process securing a quality builder for your project at a competitive building price. This process normally achieves a saving of up to 30% on building costs, with the best design and best workmanship at the best price.
Our full-service Masterplan Concept to Keys design package contains our Pre-Design and Masterplan Sketch Design services, Design Development, Approval Documents, Construction Documentation and Tender services. There is also an option of our Contract Administration service (part 2 of step 6) during the building process, as well as interior and landscape design services. If you are renovating, we will also need to complete Measured Drawings of your existing premises, and a Site Survey by a consulting Surveying firm will also need to be undertaken.
If you have ever needed surgery, then you know that there is extensive research and investigation before the operation. Our Masterplan Concept to Keys package works in a similar way in that we research and analyse your needs and options, then create a complete design focused solution and full project management of your renovation or new builds.
Anyone who wants their design and build to be comprehensively managed to ensure that your building project is designed and built to specifications and the highest quality workmanship. This package also suits people that are keen to ensure they get a great return on their lifestyle and financial investment.
This Masterplan Concept to Keys Design Package incorporates all six steps in our 6 Step Process. Additionally, we can coordinate the building process through extensive Contract Administration, on your behalf. We also offer Interior Design and Landscape Design services with full documentation for the build.
