Design Subdivide & Build is a Melbourne based property development services provider.
“I want to develop my property…
but how do I get started?”
Whether you’re considering a dual occupancy in the backyard, a brand new duplex, or four townhouses on a clear site, Design Subdivide & Build will help get your project off the ground.
Design Subdivide & Build helps clients develop their land by:
- Formulating site tailored designs (single homes and multi-units)
- Fulfil your/your markets lifestyle requirements
- Obtaining Town Planning permits from local council
- Assisting in the appointment of a competent and reliable builder
Some common questions when considering a dual occupancy or multi unit project are:
Q. What is the maximum volume of construction allowable on the land?
Q. Are there restrictions on the land? such as: minimum lot sizes, overlays, zoning and covenants.
Q. Can trees which are inhibiting the building envelope be removed?
Q. Can approval be obtained for a second driveway/crossover?
Q. Can power poles, nature strip trees, storm water drains etc be removed to make way for a second or additional driveway/crossover?
Q. How many, and what type of units should be built?
Q. Can adequate services be provided to the new unit(s), such as: electricity, gas, water, sewerage and storm water.
Q. How do I obtain the “legal point of discharge”, or LPD, for my property?
Q. When should I engage a surveyor, aroborist or engineer?
Q. When should I engage a designer, architect or town planner?
Q. What other costs are involved, apart from construction?
Q. How much will it cost to obtain plans and permits, before I start building?
Q. How much will it cost to demolish the existing structures on my land?
Design Subdivide & Build work is split into 3 Stages.
The above critical questions are addressed in Stage 1, the “Preliminary Feasibility Report”.
