Initial Consult (meet and greet)

We meet, talk, explore new possibilities, and find the right design pathway for you. This is the first exciting step to making your vision a reality.

Detailing your vision (the brief)

We gather as many details as we can about how you live, your ideas for a development, styles of houses, etc before providing an estimated cost and timeframe for your project.

Sketches and design documentation (application paperwork)

The ideas take shape. Design documentation is prepared in partnership with external consultants with the approval process always in mind.

Construction documentation (Construction certificate)

Construction documentation and specifications are created for the approval certificate. Once we have a green light, we can begin the building process.

Getting the right builder & price (Tender Package)

Our detailed, comprehensive tender packages allow builders to quote accurately. This means they can move ahead with confidence, and so can you.

Making sure it comes together (Contract Administration)

We’re as keen as you are to see your vision come to life. This optional step allows us to provide onsite and remote management every step of the way. It also provides you with the confidence that your project will come in on time, and on budget.
