Please contact us to arrange an initial consultation. At this meeting, held in our office, we discuss in broad terms what your requirements are and discuss a number of issues including:
- The site conditions
- Any regulations or overlays that may affect the site
- Your living requirements (The design brief)
- The style of design
- The project budget
- The design process
We have a number of concept designs and previous projects to refer back to in order to provide a “ball Park” estimate of the project buildings costs. Our customers love home design architect, drawings, concepts created by the team.
The initial meeting usually runs for 30-45 minutes. From this meeting, a design scope of works can be established and a project fee proposal will be developed. Once the proposal is accepted, we can commence the design works.
Prior to any design works commencing, we will carry out a site investigation to assess views, review solar access, study the prevailing breezes and investigate neighbouring homes to determine if there will be any privacy issues.
At this stage, we will organize the soil testing, wind classification and order a features and levels survey.
Once the site investigation is completed, a Concept meeting will be organized, either back at our office, or at your existing home, where we will develop the design brief.
