Here at MDS we don't have existing plans - we design each home to suit our client needs taking into consideration their tastes, living requirements and lifestyle whilst creating a home that sits perfectly in its environment.
The first step in the design process is to visit your site and complete a design brief.
During this meeting we ask you a lot of questions to get a good understanding of your requirements and what you are wanting to achieve.
We'll find out about your likes, dislikes, lifestyle requirements and will work through your wishlist to make sure we design a home that fits your family perfectly.
This is our opportunity to present you with the conceptual design which is a very exciting step in the process.
Within this initial design we include floor plans, elevations, site plans and 3D photo realistic visuals to enable you to get a better understanding of the overall design.
We encourage your feedback to allow us to move through the process fine-tuning the design to meet your needs.
Following the acceptance of your concept design, we get started on the working drawings.
These are the detailed drawings that we will submit to Council on your behalf, and provide to your builder for pricing and construction.
During the working drawings phase we will arrange for all appropriate consultants such as structural engineers, geotechnical engineers etc to provide the documentation required for consent application.
We will apply for the building consent (and resource consent where required) on your behalf. Our experience and knowledge of Council and town planning requirements assists with a timely processing period.
We will work closely with your chosen builder to ensure a smooth transition between design and construction. We can assist you during the pricing process and can recommend builders to you whom we have developed good working relationships and who are familiar with our designs and high level of workmanship.
We also offer full project management to oversee the entire process of design and construction, and bring years of experience and expertise to your project.
