The Design Process

The design process depends upon the type of project and will be customised to suit your individual project.

Contact us for a no obligation free quote or chat about your building project’s design and documentation needs.


After initial contact and a brief discussion about your needs and requirements, a fee estimation can be provided outlining our services and reports required involved with your project.


If Ball Park figure costings are within your budget, we will then provide an obligation-free fixed price ‘Schedule of Fees Proposal’ based on your individual project needs.


Once acceptance has been received, any relevant Surveys and Certificates that are required will be ordered. A meeting will then be arranged to meet with you, either onsite or at the Nest RD office, to discuss the project concept further in depth.


Design sketch plans prepared for you to look over and give you the opportunity to make any modifications and/or discuss the concept of the design.


Building design drawings are then prepared including site plans, floorplans, elevations, cross sections along with all other associated documentation required for the project.


The project is then submitted for application and approval as either a Development Application (DA) with the local council or a Complying Development Certificate application (CDC) with one of our consulting private certifying authorities.


Upon approval of the DA, a Construction Certificate (CC) will need to be applied for via the NSW Planning Portal with a Private Certifier of choice. We can recommend suitable consultants to assist with your application; alternatively, your builder may be able to assist, or you can complete the application on your own.
