Green Sheep Collective — Sustainable Architects Melbourne

Services

Services

Green Sheep Collective offer the full range of architectural services. We are happy to be flexible in the level of service we provide for your project, and can offer all or some of the following:

Concept design

We deliver sketch design options to you, based on a thorough briefing process and assessment of the site and planning constraints. The concept designs allow you to consider the viability of different approaches, indicate project costs for realistic budgeting, and help you see the opportunities inherent in the project. You can make informed choices about how you would like the design to develop, and get excited about the possible ways forward.

Design development

Building on your chosen concept design, we develop the form and materiality of the building, further considering built volumes, ceiling heights and shapes, window openings, external materials and colours, and preliminary cabinetry design. You get a clear picture of a design that integrates with the site, responds to your budget and brief, and has integrity as a whole.

Town planning

We have extensive experience handling planning permit applications, and working with councils to get a mutually agreeable design response. Throughout the design process, we will keep you abreast of how your evolving project sits within the planning controls, and will assist you to make informed choices regarding risks and opportunities where they exist.

Construction documentation

This process further details the design, and coordinates the work of other consultants, such as the building surveyor, structural engineer and energy rater. We ensure that the design continues to reflect your particular preferences, and that the work of consultants does not undermine the integrity of the design. This stage brings together all of the information required to gain a building permit and an accurate price, and enables the construction of your building.

Tendering

Green Sheep Collective has ongoing relationships with a range of builders, and can offer assistance in pricing your project via a competitive tender process, or by negotiation with a preferred builder.

Contract administration

Green Sheep Collective offers full contract administration between builder and client. Alternatively, you may choose to simply engage us to communicate with the builder during construction as matters arise, to ensure the design integrity is retained and that opportunities are made of the unforeseen elements of construction.
