What We Do

At KDB we are trailblazers in design. Nothing we produce is off the shelf, or a template. We work closely with you and are hands on in our approach to get the best design that maximises your project.

Being an architectural designer is not just about producing plans.  Your project requires a creative mind to see the details, to see what can be possible and how to maximise what you have. Yes, the final result of this is a set of plans for your builders to work off, but we provide so much more, it is that insight and creativity, and technical on site experience that many other designer’s lack.

At the heart of what we do is to work closely with you to help you define and refine what it is that you want out of your space. How that will function and how that will inspire. Our experience in doing this for a number of years is the key. We are young enough to know what is trendy and old enough to have seen all the issues that arise with a building project. 

Our design process is rigorous, and we feel that we are a trailblazer in terms of design and standards. That coupled with our hands on approach means that you are working with a real perfectionist, with the familiarity and maturity of any situation.

Planning

The realities of planning are never easy. Getting approvals from councils, knowing how to push boundaries and making sure you comply with council guidelines is a proper fight. We have seen it all before and are well trained in dealing with every eventuality. We work hard to make this as seamless as possible for you the home owner.

Building Regulations

Regulations are there to make sure you, the public and everyone associated with your building is safe. There is a high level of compliance and legislation that needs to be understood. That is where we come in, as Kish has over 20 years of experience in the building control sector and knows his way around the maze.

Party Wall Agreements

Party wall agreements are often overlooked when taking on building projects. We have consistently been dealing with such issues for the last 20 years and can help on any building project that require an agreement to be in place.

Most people by now will have heard about Party Wall Agreements, but will know very little about them or be mis-informed regarding their use and power.  I’m going to attempt to demystify this paranormal legislature that is a mine field for anybody contemplating extending their home, but without getting too technical.

Project Management

Your home improvement project is likely to be the biggest financial investment you are ever going to make, and it’s a one-off opportunity and hence you cannot afford to make mistakes.  Finding and managing contractors can be a foreign experience for those who are not conversant with construction practice and procedures.  Our Stage 3 Service reinforces the Construction drawings by providing additional information that will both assist you in making decisions and ensuring the contractor executes the project as planned.  However, you are advised that this is not an interior design package.  The Project management service offers the broadest service and would represent a small percentage of the overall contract sum, but can save you considerably more in time and money in the long term.
