The Practice

We have the expertise to help you with new builds, alterations and additions to existing builds, and renovations. We can help build your home from design consultation through to finding you the right builder.

Design consultation


We take time to understand your needs and help you prepare a brief that is in line with your budget, conduct feasibility studies, and complete master planning if needed.

High level concept


We define the form and plan a pragmatic layout in 3D models, 2D drawings and outline specifications. We obtain an initial cost estimate, and make preliminary material and finishes selections and reconcile them with your budget.

Development applications


We assist you in the preparation and submission of town planning applications to local councils for approval.

Design development


We refine your material and finishes and finalise the interior design and joinery details. We coordinate initial structural design input, and begin lighting and electrical layouts.

Construction documentation


We work your designs into practical documents for builders to price and process your building permits. Then we coordinate and manage other consultants.

Contractor selection


We help you negotiate the selection and the contracts of reliable builders.

Contract administration


We prepare contracts and administration of contracts between you and your builder throughout construction to ensure you get what we designed. We do this with site visits, any additional documentation and details the builder needs, and assessing progress claims. We will also closely and proactively monitor timings and budgets.

Post construction guidance


We will help you with defect inspections and coordinate any required work during the defects liability period.
