Clarke’s Design & Construct were engaged in June to provide a new warehouse and showroom facility for a locally owned and operated furniture retail store.
Due to the tight time frame we were working to, we had to complete the building design and get the Council Approval in record time.
Once the finishing touches to the plans were completed by our in-house design team and signed off by our client we needed to get the project lodged and approved quickly.
Council’s ‘Risksmart’ planning approval system assists with projects that fall just outside the commonly used ‘self-assessable’ approach. The ‘Risksmart’ system provides a guaranteed 5 day assessment. If the application is prepared and lodged correctly then developments are normally approved inside a week.
So moving forward, now the DA has been approved the structural, civil and hydraulic designs are now complete ready for Building Approval lodgement. Again, done properly this should only take 3 weeks to receive stamped plans ready for construction.
In summary, with our expertise and knowledge of Councils requirements and the use of the right consultants, design, DA & BA approval can be achieved in less than 10 weeks.
