Surveys for new projects
16-01-2019 
Please note, to ensure accuracy and compliance for relevant planning rules, we will not commence projects until a site survey has been completed and cad files received from the surveyors.  This applies to all new homes and most renovation projects. A list of surveyors can be found on our web site in the trades section. We can arrange this on your behalf if that is your preference.

Design Process and Budget
22-12-2018 
For me, budget is key. I will always be honest about expectations/brief vs client's budget. Don't be fooled by project home company marketing, you will end up paying the full price eventually (added 'site costs' or inflated 'design and application fees'). This article provides a good summary and includes links for cost calculators;
