QUESTIONS

How much does a design cost?

It depends! Since each project we undertake is entirely unique an initial consultation is required to establish the scope of the works before a proposal can be prepared. Proposals are generally fixed sums with any additional fees or options presented in a transparent manner to give peace of mind.​

What's included in the design service?

  • Initial design brief / intro meeting and several in-person consultations throughout the process.

  • Concept design development.

  • Design prepared and presented using CAD software - floor plan(s), elevations, site plan and 3D perspectives.

  • Communication on your behalf with council and builders during the design and tendering stage.

  • 3D fly-through video or interactive walk-through. (optional)​

  • Access to our network of building professionals to cost check during the design process.

How does the plan copyright work?

Our designs are protected under copyright law and cannot be used or copied without prior written consent from Halcyon Designs. Upon completion of works and final payment being received, the plans are released to the client for the purpose of construction at the address stipulated. The design remains the intellectual property of Halcyon Designs and cannot be used or reproduced in any way outside of the design agreement for commercial gain thereafter.

Can I bring my own plans?

At Halcyon Designs we're passionate about what we do. To ensure we are offering something truly unique we start with a blank slate. Although the designs have our own distinctive imprint, we encourage a collaborative approach between client and designer to ensure the final product feels personal.

We need a builder, can you help?

Absolutely! We work with many of Perth's top builders and project management specialists. Based on your needs we can connect you with our trusted network of building professionals to find the right fit. Ask us how!

Can you provide Working Drawings?

Yes! We carry out drafting services (working drawings) for most of our designs. We understand that in the custom home market changes don't stop at the conclusion of the design process, as a result we prefer to be involved from start to finish. This provides clients a constant line of communication with the designer to ensure the finished product has a consistent design tone.

We can also provide drafting services for external projects on a case by case basis. Contact us now to see if we can help!
