listen. interpret. create.

As the old saying goes, a picture can say a thousand words; but it never tells the full story. Here at CBD Architects we believe in the art of story-telling, and the magic of truly getting to know someone. We invite you to browse our journey and read about the families we've become honorary members of, the lives we've helped transform, and the businesses we've written history with.

When you're ready, we'll be ready to listen to your story and create something just for you.

HOW IT WORKS

1

INTRODUCTION

Let's get to know each other over lunch or coffee, on us of course!

2

DESIGN

Here we begin the design process. There are four main stages of design, with a few sub-categories. Sketch, Design Development, Final Design and Working Drawings. We are mindful of your financial investment and are constantly reviewing it throughout every stage.

3

PLANNING APPLICATIONS

After we create a design you love during the Sketch and Design development stages we progress to Final Design.

During this stage we coordinate and liaise with the required council to get your project through with minimal compromise.

4

DOCUMENTATION & SPECIFICATIONS

Based on your sign off and Council planning approval, we produce a detailed set of construction drawings and specifications to meet your every desire.

5

TENDER

We can tender your project to reputable builders; ensuring you get the best price possible. Or we can work directly with your preferred builder.

6

CONSTRUCTION

Once we've reviewed the tender results, selected a builder and finalised the drawings, things begin to move quickly.

7

CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION

From construction inspections to contract administration, we can assist throughout the build and ensure it is constructed the way it was intended.
