We are driven by a design ethos that buildings are a facade – we can make anything look good.
Smart design and good documentation prior to building saves the client exponentially in their investment

We can undertake projects from a conceptual sketch plan phase, through to design & documentation for approvals.

Our Work

Design: From block feasibility studies to yield analysis, we can give you an idea of the capacity or potential yield of your land prior to the commencement of any sketches. We work out the constraints on a block (Building Envelope, parking generation / thereby building scale) opportunities / constraints (vistas, signage opportunities, vehicular impediments, regulations prohibiting certain built forms, BCA requirements) and desired outcomes into a built form.

Documentation: Utilising a mix of 2D and 3D CAD software, we can draw up accurate plans and elevations of the proposal, including shadow diagrams, sections, shaded elevations and perspectives.

Customer Relations: At BDHprojects, our highest priority is happy clients. You are important to us, if that entails meeting an “impossible” deadline, you can expect us to go the extra mile for your business.
