Pre-Design Discovery

The pre-design discovery process involves the capture of the possibilities for the site in line with the project intent set out by the client. For a fixed fee clients receive an on-site meeting and a discovery report which includes:

- Site Analysis including boundaries, breezes, views, orientation, access and topography

- Existing building context including materials, construction, building age and condition.

- Planning Scheme Overview

- SWOT analysis

- Proposal options and examples

- Preliminary understanding of probable project costs and timeframes

Concept Design

Concept design involves the formation of ideas into a single spatial solution. The concept design drawings and presentations can help clients 'see' the proposal and allow for informed discussions, board proposals and capital raising.

Concept design is concerned with high level understanding of layouts, composition, materials and form. During this phase we typically offer our clients:

- Brief development and formalisation

- Concept design development including consideration for materials and construction solutions

- Presentation Imagery and 3D Rendered Perspectives

Design Development and Documentation

Following Concept Design, Design Development and Documentation is where things get technical. During this phase concept designs evolve into documents suitable for approvals, pricing and construction. During this phase we develop and coordinate our architectural documentation to suit:

- Council Planning Application and Approvals

- Building Approval and Certification

- Tendering and Builder Quotes

- Construction

Strategic Placemaking and Master Planning

Focusing on the WHY's of design, strategic placemaking creates the underlying vision for design intervention. Created before master planning or concept design, the people-centred process allows clients to understand the needs and aspirations of their customers, staff and community.

Similarly, master planning allows for a greater vision to be created across a site or region which identifies overall site planning, delivery phasing and capital investment. This process involves site analysis and identification of opportunities and is typically presented as a plan.
