Feasibility and concept:

Irrespective of your land development objectives, our team excels at precisely identifying a site’s potential and optimal utilisation.

Whether you envision units, villas, townhouses, or a multi-residential development, we possess the acumen to assess the site’s feasibility.

From the initial feasibility evaluation, we transition to the concept development, endeavouring to unlock the land’s full commercial potential.

To optimise profit, we combine the principles of exceptional design with a financially prudent approach. The outcome is developments that not only excel in terms of design but also possess a commercial appeal that ensures their market success.

Market testing:

At Playoust Churcher, we are attuned to the intricacies of the market and the dynamics that drive it.

We hone our understanding through active engagement with real estate experts. We collaborate with them to assess our concepts’ saleability, product offering and pricing.

We craft our designs to align with market preferences and your ultimate objectives, whether you plan to lease or divest the development.

Iterative refinement is a hallmark of our approach as we adapt our designs to perfection. This is essential to our commitment to designing developments that deliver precisely the outcomes you seek.

Our meticulous process serves as a risk mitigation strategy for your prospective development.

Schematic design for lifestyle and functionality:

It is essential that the concept is not just viable but will also yield substantial returns. We proceed to elevate the design with 4D modelling.

This phase allows us to thoroughly refine the concepts, balancing a cost-conscious approach with understanding the future end-users who will be acquiring these properties.

 

Our interior architects provide the detailing that specifies the materials and fixtures to bring the concept to life.

Our expertise extends to a discerning comprehension of the various markets in medium-density housing. This insight enables us to craft units, townhouses and villas that are appealing and tailored to the market’s specific needs. Our formula helps mitigate risks and safeguards your investment.

DA & CDC Compliance:

We collaborate with a network of proficient consultants to compile essential planning reports, traffic analyses, geotechnical assessments, access evaluations and landscape drawings stipulated by the council.

Our rapport with local councils and our in-depth comprehension of development regulations uniquely position us to navigate this intricate process on your behalf.

Invaluable sales support

As you embark on the pre-sale phase, we provide invaluable support by producing curated marketing and presentation drawings. These visual materials serve as compelling collaterals to attract potential buyers and investors, showcasing the essence of the project.

Well before the construction commencement, we breathe life into the concept, enabling you to initiate early sales confidently. These early-stage visualisations bolster your sales efforts and offer a glimpse into the vision that will soon become a reality.

Contract tender – work with the best

We present an exhaustive set of construction drawings to prepare for entering into a fixed-price building contract. These comprehensive documents serve as the blueprint for the forthcoming construction phase.

Our collaboration begins with you as we assist in selecting a builder whose expertise aligns with your project’s specific requirements. Subsequently, we furnish the preferred builder with the required documentation.

This collaborative approach empowers buyers to personalise their future dwellings, ranging from subtle changes such as paint colours, to more substantial adjustments, such as bespoke carpets, tailored tiles and kitchen design modifications.

Our goal is to create living spaces that meet the highest design standards and encapsulate the unique preferences and aspirations of future occupants.

Interior architecture that adds the WOW factor

Breathing life into the concept, we embark on the comprehensive interior architecture phase. We delve into the intricate details that make a dwelling truly exceptional.

Our expertise extends to designing the heart of the home, including the kitchen and bathrooms, meticulously crafting stairs, optimising lighting solutions and selecting tiles that blend aesthetics with functionality, all while ensuring strict adherence to regulatory and budgetary considerations.

We extend our services to end-buyers who have invested in the project off the plan. We commit to establishing a symbiotic partnership in developing projects that exude creativity, are deeply functional and ultimately attain a high gross realisation.

Our goal is to deliver dwellings that meet the highest standards of design excellence and culminate in a financially rewarding outcome for our clients.
