Design & Planning services. Your plans or ours...
 
Our unique planning ensures your project gets off in the right direction.

Neumode Design & Construction continue to offer a professional and thorough service to all our clients throughout the entire course of the project – from conception through to completion.

The key advantages of Neumode Design & Planning services are:

  • Professional Planning services are offered in conjunction with our in house design services or your own plans
  • Our Planning service ascertains anticipated construction costs prior to the completion of the final construction and engineering drawings
  • Clients are fully aware of anticipated construction cost before committing to further expense in preparation of formal documentation and permit applications – avoiding extra re-documentation and re-application costs
  • Step-by-step approach allows the Client to maintain control of the project

Our experience has shown that often the builders final quotations come in higher than the clients budget or the architects estimate. Frequently this results in the project either needing major re-design work or even being cancelled – either way, a frustrating and costly result for the Client in both time and money.

Neumode offers our distinct service in order to avoid these costly errors and allow our Clients to be fully informed throughout the course of the project.

Our Design & Planning services include the following:

  • Initial meeting with our team to discuss design ideas and options
  • Preparation of a project brief and fixed fee proposal for our services
  • Further detailed inspection of the property to ascertain site conditions – including measure-up and photo survey
  • Presentation of concept drawings
  • Further review and preparation of design development drawings as required
  • Take off of materials and labour as described in the draft documentation
  • Calling of sub contract prices where possible and analysis of submissions
  • Allowances for work not specifically described in the documentation but are necessary to be carried out
  • Formation of estimate of costs and construction period detailing assumptions
  • Preparation of bill of quantities to accurately ascertain the approximate construction cost - including a full trade breakdown
  • Preparation of construction documentation – including kitchen, bathroom and other joinery and detailed design
  • Management of necessary permit applications, preparing the project ready for construction


Following this Design & Planning service, Neumode provide only the highest quality of award winning construction – leaving our clients with a result that we are proud to deliver.

In addition to the Design & Planning services we offer we will always take control of coordinating the site survey, demolition of the existing dwelling and preparing the site including the site cut to determine the exact building levels, installation of retaining walls and drainage and fencing if required to the boundaries, installation of any pools, water tanks or cellar construction. We pride ourselves in offering the complete package as we know that supervision of every stage of the project is extremely important.
