ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROCESS FOR NEW RESIDENTIAL HOMES
STAGE 1: APPRAISAL AND DEFINITION OF THE PROJECT
This is initial client meeting which is preferably held onsite to get a clear understanding and appreciation of the scope of the project. This is when you tell us about your dreams for your future home and we listen carefully to make sure the needs are incorporated into the forthcoming stages of the architectural design process.
Gregory Grubb will take you through the architectural design process, giving you valuable advice and letting you know what is needed from your side (e.g. existing council approved plans, SG diagrams etc.) He will also inform you about the need to appoint professional consultants (e.g. engineers) in order to satisfy council requirements as well as any “hidden” costs such as local metropolitan council submission fees etc.
STAGE 2: DESIGN CONCEPT
In the second stage of the new residential home design process all of your needs, the specifics of the site as well as planning and statutory requirements are taken into account when preparing design sketches for you.
This is the discussion stage where we present our concept to you and you let us know which parts you like and which need tweaking to suite a specific need or desire.
STAGE 3: APPROVALS AND TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION
Once the architectural design sketches have been approved and signed off by you, we begin work on the working drawings for council submission and construction.
Should you wish we can assist with submission to the relevant local metropolitan council for an additional fee
