How We Can Help

1. Initial Meeting

Let’s get to know each other!  We will meet with you, tour your property and record your design brief of wants/needs.  Then we will let you know about our services and how we can best add value to your project.

2. Concept Plans

Utilising your design brief we create a number of Concept Plans to provide you with a range of solutions, including new ideas for you to consider.  Concept Plans are hand-sketched and are the initial design drawings, which allow you to visualise the possibilities for improving your home, or commercial space.

Concept Plans are provided on a fixed fee basis, with no ongoing obligation to Detail 9 Architects: this gives you the flexibility to continue the project when you wish.

3. Design Development/Plans for Town Planning

Sometimes when you alter your house, and anytime you build more than one house on a single block, you will need to obtain Town Planning Approval from your local Council.

Should your project require Council approval, will we assist you through the process, from making the application to the Council on your behalf; creating the required set of drawings based on the Concept Plans, and co-ordinating any required consultants, such as Land Surveyors.

Additional Services

Sustainability Advice

We will provide you with a sustainability appraisal of your home to address running costs and make your home greener, including suggestions on how to incorporate sustainability devices and strategies.

3D Modelling

When we design your project, we are able to create 3D images of the design to enable you to visualise concepts as we produce them, should you wish. 3D Modelling can help with Town Planning Applications to Council, or can be used as a marketing tool in selling your residential or commercial property.

Feasibility Reports

On completion of the Concept Plans, prior to progressing to Town Planning or further design development, we will provide you with a comprehensive Feasibility Report if engaged to do so.  This document will set out the following:

  • any planning or development restrictions and regulations which apply to your property
  • documenting any existing buildings on the property and
  • exploring the various options for redevelopment included in the Concept Plans.

This document provides you with sufficient analysis to establish the viability and cost of the project.
