Design and Documentation Process for New Clients


Step 1. A design consultation with the designer is the first step to designing your new project with Pride Home Designs. From this meeting, we will take in all the requirements both you and your site requires for your project to be completed. Based on this we can supply you with an obligation free quote for the design and documentation for your proposed project.


Step 2. From here we start the Preliminary / Concept design stage where we work alongside yourself to produce concept drawings of your project, making any changes along the way required by yourself to fine tune the design to suit your specific requirements to meet your lifestyle needs. Before starting the concept designs we will do a site inspection of the block of land (or existing home if it is a renovation / extension). At this point we will also work out if a site survey is required, if so we can organise this through our recommended surveyor or we can work alongside your chosen surveyor.


Step 3. If your specific project requires a Development Approval (DA), Stage 3 is where DA plans are produce. These are then forwarded on to a town planner to start the process of the DA. If you don’t have a town planner chosen we can organise for Development Approval to be done through our recommended town planners, or we can work alongside your chosen town planner.

Step 4. By now the design is ready to go to construction stage. Here we produce the working drawings for Building Approvals (BA) for everyone involved (Builder and Trades, Engineer, Certifier, Etc…) to work from


Step 5. We are all done! At this point plans would be forwarded on to the engineer for engineering and ready for council approval and then construction. Again if you don’t have a chosen engineer we can organise engineering for you through one of our recommended engineers, or we can work alongside your chosen engineer.

Step 6. We may be done with the design and documentation of the plans, but were are still here to help if you or anyone involved in your project (Trades, Suppliers, Etc…) have any queries along the way – We are just a phone call or email away. Remember, Pride Home Designs will be with you until the project is complete.
