MODULAR DESIGN GUIDE

A module has incredible flexibility in the way it can be used either by itself, or with other modules, to create almost any building type, size, or shape.

We believe that modular architecture should not be determined by a prescribed module size but rather a methodology and construction system that can respond to create any desired design

We will carry out a site inspection, which enables our architects to assess access, passive orientation, design, and siting options. Equipped with this information, we will then develop a concept design that will best integrate with your site and requirements.

One of our design team will then meet with you to discuss the site findings, your in-depth visions for the project, and help you source and compile inspiration photos and other resources so we can design a home that is perfect ‘you’. After this meeting, our architects will generate a design proposal that will be presented to you in four weeks’ time.

The proposal will include:

Project brief
Property report
Sun path analysis
Proposed design concepts
Detailed concept costing
Standard specifications and options
Summary of external consultant reports required and estimated costs involved
Next steps
COST:

$10K*

TIME:

1 day for a site visit

+ 1 day for a design meeting

+ 4 weeks for project proposal development

Our architects will take the proposal and work collaboratively with you to further develop and refine your concept design, consistently ensuring it meets your needs, style, and budget.

External consultants such as geo technicians will be engaged at this stage to further inform the design. The resulting concept will then be used to obtain energy ratings and permits.

COST:

$10K*

TIME:

4-8 weeks

If your project requires a permit, we can undertake the process of obtaining this on your behalf – commissioning the surveys, assessments, and reports that are required.

Once the planning permit has been received or if planning is not required, then a set of detailed drawings are prepared by our architecture and drafting team for both building permit and construction purposes. We will arrange a building permit using our building surveyor. We will also arrange the energy report and any other project-specific reports using external consultants.
