Town Planning, Heritage & Building Sustainability
We provide a range of services to assist with the development process, from initial advice to providing reports and certification to accompany development proposals.
More specifically we provide services relating to:
Town Planning – Over 20 years of town planning experience, working on behalf of the public and private sectors, has resulted in the ability to provide honest and sound town planning advice. First hand experience in working for and being contracted to various Councils in the Inner Sydney area, together with experience gained from lodging hundreds of development proposals around Sydney and NSW has resulted in extensive town planning experience and knowledge. Our town planners are Certified Planners with the Planning Institute of Australia. The majority of our town planning work involves the provision of Statements of Environmental Effects that accompany development applications, and town planning advice in relation to development proposals.
Heritage – We provide specialist advice and reports in relation to building works to heritage items and to buildings within heritage conservation areas. Heritage assessments and Heritage impact statements are increasingly required when development proposals may have some affect on heritage items and to the character and appearance of heritage conservation areas. Our qualified and experienced heritage personnel have considerable experience in dealing with heritage matters.
Building Sustainability (BASIX and BCA Section J Reports) – These are energy ratings that are required for building works. Our staff are accredited members of the Australian Building Sustainability Association and are trained in providing the best out come for our clients. We always seek to provide advice that will allow for good energy performance at reasonable construction costs.
This multi disciplinary approach together with extensive experience results in us being in a unique position to assist with development proposals.
