Shobha Designs – Architects and Urban Designers’ is a young, dynamic and versatile architectural and urban design practice offering professional services through innovative yet practical, cutting edge and sustainable design solutions. It is headed by Nilesh Munot, a registered architect, who brings over 18 years of extensive industry experience and is supported by other qualified architects and graduates.
LIME Architects is an architectural practice that is passionate about great designs and practical solutions and is based in the heart of Manly.
We marry clever design with practical solutions that are buildable, environmentally sensible, and cost effective. The extra you invest in good design and beyond just drafting will be evident and appreciated at our first design presentation.
Our business approach:
1. Listen to what are the key issues our clients wish to achieve then deliver unique design solutions.
2. Well considered design provides a better building lifestyle and ultimately higher resale value.
3. We offer solutions beyond client expectations.
Only 6 % of Australians commission an architect to take control of their residential building design. The remaining 94% elect to engage a building designer, saving the equivalent of the cost of a top of the range dishwasher. A good architect can save three times their fees worth by clever and efficient layouts and a hierarchy of item choices.
The 94% of Australians who engage a building designer, in many cases, spend their time and their hard earned money relying on a builder to solve poor planning layouts. Once construction commences, it is the builder the 94% relies on to pick up the pieces when they realise the layout is disappointing.
If you realise too late you have a building that is poorly designed, you will have ended your relationship with your designer and have to rely on their builder to throw good money in rectifying poorly considered layouts, inappropriate external claddings and possibly poor quality fittings and items.
You are entrusting your designer with one of, if not the single most important financial investment in your life. If you are going to live or work in a building, then choosing clever architects, is a financial investment not an expense.
Real benefits are in the resale profit but more importantly, better building lifestyle. It's about giving priority to those items that matter and saving on those items that are low in the list of must haves. We promise to guide you on the merits of how to make these choices.
Building Lifestyle. We refer to this term often, and you rarely hear this mentioned by other architects let alone building designers. What is this?
A great example is:
You are into day one of your holiday in a wonderful holiday house/apartment. You are overcome with a feeling of being relaxed. You love the feel of the place, the choice of materials, the colour combinations and the practical relaxed layout. Just then you announce to yourself and those within earshot,"Why can't we live like this?" You are experiencing that resort experience which you'd love to have more often. What you experience is the touch from someone who knows great and simple design.
Simple. You don't need to go on more holidays to relax. Just imagine the final building result and invest in good design and have that resort feel and wonderfully clever layout at home.
Now you are thinking like the 6% of Australians.
We are a small professional company that specialises in:
* Construction of 1 & 2 Bedroom Granny Flats
* Drafting and Approval Services
* Preparation and lodgement of D.A. to Council or Private Certifier
* New home building
* Residential & Commercial project management + construction
We also offer a complete design, planning and building system and we offer our clients a 100% FIXED PRICE quotation / tender prior to any Contracts being exchanged.
We obtain ALL relevant site information and our FIXED PRICE Contract(s) include all variations, site costs, connecting to mains services, excavation and piering. These are usually additional, unconfirmed extra costs in most NSW Building contracts. Much the same as handing your Builder a blank signed cheque!
Please visit: www.GrannyFlats.Sydney
We have many commercial and residential clients in the Sydney area and Southern Highlands region who we are proud to offer as references for you to discuss our services or inspect our building projects with prior arrangement.
We are unlike most building company's ..
There is a lot to consider once you have decided to build a Granny Flat!
When you build a Granny Flat, the following reports and documentation could be required for your specific project. These include:
* Contour and Site Survey
* Geological Soil Test
* Plans and elevations
* Slab or Floor Engineering
* Preparation for lodgement to Council or Private Certifier
* Storm Water Hydraulic Engineering
* Waste Management Report
* Statement of Environmental Effects
* Sewerage Diagram
* Sydney Water Certificate
* Council or Private Certifier Inspections – approx. 3 – 4
* Final Occupation Certificate
At Fixed Price Granny Flats Sydney we arrange the relevant reports and services. We then provide a FIXED PRICE quotation to supply and build your Granny Flat from start to finish. If you choose not to proceed after this, that is fine. We then release the site reports to you, no questions asked. That’s how confident we are in what we do.
Over the past 20 years I have developed a Fixed Price Building System that I have used to deliver fantastic new dwellings and Granny Flats in and around Sydney on time and on budget.
I follow a unique system which delivers a FIXED PRICE to approve, supply, build and complete your Granny Flat without the risk of costly budget blowouts.
When we say FIXED PRICE, that’s exactly what we mean. When you sign a Contract with us we include:
* Connection to Water Mains
* Connection to Electrical Mains
* Engineering for site and foundations
* Lodgement to Council / Private Certifier
* Piering (if required)
* Rubbish Removal
If you are in the market for a Granny Flat, DO NOT buy just on price. Ask exactly what items are included in the quotation or Contract. If these items are included, ask for it in writing. If you see clauses like ‘plus site costs’, or ‘does not include excavation or piering’, or ‘subject to site inspection’ or ‘does not include connection to mains services’ it can be like handing over a blank cheque by the time you have completed...... Not to mention the complication if you have borrowed money for your project without allowing for these additional costs.
I look forward to assisting you in choosing the correct options for your Granny Flat building project.
Please do not hesitate contacting me directly on (m) 0408-448-566 if you need to discuss anything further regarding your proposed Granny Flat(s).
