When it comes to designing a home, the foundations are the most important part of the whole house, 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 Concept Only design package.
The Concept Only design package is a partial design service that combines our pre-design services with Sketch Design. We will establish your scope of work and a fee proposal for the Concept Only service, then our architects will put pen to paper and create your unique architectural concept design in Step 2 Sketch Design. This will ensure that you have good foundations at the beginning of your architectural journey to the home of your dreams.
Concept to Plans
As mentioned in Option A.1 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 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 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.
Concept to Keys
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 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 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.
