We love planning buildings, which engage clients and also meets building controls.

With our planning skills in conjunction with your design brief we determine your projects settings, envelopes and platforms. We are never lacking in creativity, from initial sketches to concepts to real designs.

Before a building can commence, it is necessary to determine the approval pathway either a Development Application approval (DA) or Complying Development approval (CDC) and then a Construction Certificate approval (CC).

We project manage the complex process of obtaining the required planning & building approvals so building your dreams can start. We have experience in building consulting and certification solutions on different platforms. Our goal is to assist clients with their development. We can project manage applications from the start to approval.

In addition to the architectural drawings, the following drawings and/or reports are often required.

Complying Development Certificate application.

If you are proposing to build a new 1 or 2 storey home, renovate your home, adding a granny flat or a swimming pool, you may be able to apply for a quick building approval.

A new home, renovation or improvement can be approved without the need for a DA if it meets criteria in the NSW  Housing Code.

The Housing Code (CDC) is an alternative to the traditional Development application (DA) process saving home owners time and money with less paperwork and a quicker approval.

Using the NSW Housing Code you may have a faster approval for your home.
