Feasibility and concept design are the initial steps in developing design options for your residential development project. Our feasibility planning service evaluates the commercial potential of a piece of land before creating concepts and architectural design solutions that augment the development potential.
Key to the delivery of any residential project is the production of clear and concise technical working drawings in a time efficient way. We produce fit for purpose economical technical solutions that comply with all necessary building regulations using the latest Autocad or Revit software.
Landscaping is an integral part to any successful development. At an early stage of the design process we identify the key landscape features for retention and potential new areas for enhancement. Our in-house landscape architecture team can devise hard and soft landscape schemes that not only perform a function but also add to the aesthetic quality of a development.
From small rural or urban infill sites, to large-scale, brownfield, regeneration and greenfield urban extensions; we provide everything from concept plans and development framework plans to detailed masterplans and parameter plans, based on well-established urban design principles.
Communicating visions and detailed proposals through graphics is a key element of architectural design. Creating the best user experience and visual representation of our design proposals is what we do. From 2D plans to 3D axonometric projections and perspective visualisations, we employ various techniques and media such as hand-drawn sketches, digital photo editing and CAD software layout tools.
