What we do

Before you do anything you must investigate whether your site is suitable for development with a feasibility study. Develop My Land provide a variety of development feasibility services ranging from initial development appraisals to more complex design planning and construction feasibility studies. Whether you want to develop a house behind a house, knockdown and construct villas or townhouses or a sub division or industrial development we can provide you the right information about the cost, time and planning of your project. We can then work with you to tailor your development to make sure you realise a successful project.

After we have determined the development potential of your site you will need a design team. The most successful people will tell you ‘it takes teamwork to make the dream work’. We have experience of working with many design and construction consultants and we are able to recommend the right consultant team with the right design approach the right quality and at the right price. Sadly, we know of many people who have needlessly spent significant sums on consultants only to find that the design work completed was not accurately costed resulting in wasted time and funds. We know that a successful project is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

Our design teams are built around being efficient and creative. We know precisely what consultants you need to meet your particular project.

You will generally require the services of:

  • Surveyors
  • Solicitors
  • Engineers
  • Architect or Building Designers
  • Landscape Architect
  • Builder

Depending on the nature of your project you may require other team members.

A critical element of managing your project is communication. Whether it is keeping you fully informed of where the project is at any given time, keeping the design team informed of the projects development or negotiating with planning queries and objections, communication is paramount. Good communication means that the team is able to respond quickly because they always know what is happening with the project. This saves time and as we all know, time is money!

Design management

Good design can result in a better functioning and more attractive  building  at a cheaper cost (which means more profit as it is easier to sell and at a higher price). This doesn’t happen by accident and requires attention throughout the development process. The design management of the project is often overlooked. It is far cheaper to resolve problems at the design stage rather than discover a problem after you have started construction.

Through disciplined attention to detail and maintaining focus on your project outcome significant benefits can be achieved at little or no cost. By maintaining a thorough understanding of the design and your project objectives throughout the entire design team we ensure that the design can be coordinated effectively at critical stages of the project. By maintaining an unwavering focus on the outcomes of the project we ensure that no time is wasted on unnecessary plan or study preparation. Through a thorough understanding of the relevant Council development control plans we make sure that we produce only that documentation that is essential to enable the Council to fully understand the project and eliminate needless expense on time and valuable resources.
