It goes without saying that before you get started on construction for a new building, there needs to be a solid plan in place. Having a well-thought-out design will determine your budget, schedule and council approval for your project, making it a necessary step that needs to be undertaken right at the beginning.

Important of Building Design

Developing a building – whether residential or commercial – can be stressful, confusing and rewarding, all at the same time. There can be a strong temptation to dive in headfirst with the view that the sooner you get started, the sooner it will be finished.

Unfortunately, this isn’t usually the case. If the essential planning isn’t carried out upfront, it can end up costing you time and money in the long run. This is where ARKY Designs comes in. Our expert team is on hand to help you with the design phase of your next construction project – so you can get it off the ground without a hitch. Whether you are working on a residential building or commercial work, our team has extensive experience to help you out.

All the aspects of the construction industry can be divided into two categories: residential work (building homes) and commercial work which includes building schools, shops, office and other commercial buildings. Both types of buildings require properly prepared building designs if they are to be constructed successfully.

Here’s a look at the different areas we cover.

How ARKY Designs Can Help

ARKY Design is a ‘building design’ company that provides the best building designs in Mornington Peninsula. We have professional builders to build perfect building designs for your homes, offices and other commercial buildings.

Perfecting the design of your project allows you to create a plan with a detailed scope of the work to be done. It’s an important step in any project that needs to be carried out with expertise. ARKY Designs will work with your budget to match your expectations and deliver a superior design for your next project.

Steps Involved in Building Design

ARKY Designs works with you each step of the way to ensure we not only meet, but go beyond your expectations to deliver a superior design that you love. There are three essential steps to this process that we will guide you through:

  1. Meet, discuss and plan: we tailor each design to the needs of our clients. We like to get to know you before going ahead, which is why we always organise a meet and greet. This is our chance to get to know your project and what you’re hoping to get out of it. Using this information, we can get started on the next stages of the design process.
  2. Create a plan: we create a plan customised to your needs. Also known as a schematic design, it involves a rough layout of the floor plan, along with exterior views if you’re building an addition to your home.
  3. Consultation: once the rough plans have been drawn up, we hand them back to you for consultation. It’s our goal to exceed your expectations, which means we keep you involved at each step of the process. Depending on whether or not you want to make changes, this initial design phase can take months. It’s important to factor this in when placing a timeframe on your project. Remember, all good things take time and a building design isn’t something you want to rush into.

Each stage of the process is extremely flexible to cater to our individual clients’ needs. We take into consider all your requirements, each step of the way, while also delivering a professional and well-thought-out plan in an efficient manner.

What Next?

Once the building design is finalised, you can make a move on the construction side of the project.

The documentation we produce in the design stage can then be used to obtain building approvals from council, while also coordinating a number of different consultants needed for the job.

Seeing a development from these initial planning stages through to completion is extremely rewarding.  We love being there each step of the way to ensure your project runs as smoothly as possible meeting the competing demands of budget, timing and approval needed along the way.

If you’re ready to get started on your next design project, then give the experts at ARKY Designs a call. We’re there for you each step of the way!
