Initially, I work closely with the client in the preparation of Concept Plans demonstrating the clients vision.
On clients approval, I develop the plans required for Building Consent (BC) application. Depending on design complexity, the client needs to engage 'other professionals' - subsequently, I adopt their recommendations & designs into the BC plans.
Eco House Design
I have a strong focus on energy efficient design & the use of sustainable building systems.
I do encourage clients to adopt 'best practice' for floor/wall/ceiling insulation. Once the Gib goes on, it is very hard to upgrade this insulation.
Lodgement with Council
On the clients behalf I lodge the completed plans with Council. If desired, clients can undertake this:- my me is reduced slightly accordingly .
It is my responsibility to address any 'Request for Information' (RFI) that arise during the Consent assessment process.
