Featured Reviews for Building Designers in Derrimut, Victoria
In2 Pty Ltd
Building Designers in Derrimut, Victoria
"We asked In2 to assist us with a dual occupancy project in Manningham after we saw a development they designed. From initial discussion with the director, Mile, we thought In2 would be great to work with. We have not been disappointed once. We are very happy with the designs and the consultancy we received from In2. What we found very valuable through the process is the advice we were getting from Mile and his team. NB: We will post photos when project is complete."

Paul Di Stefano Design
Building Designers in Derrimut, Victoria
"My wife and I retained Paul's services to design and supervise construction of our new home. We gave Paul, we think, a demanding brief made more complex by stringent building covenants over the land, a restricted building envelope and an irregularly shaped Lot. We found Paul not only very talented and creative in designing a beautiful home, but also practical, personable and more than willing to work closely with us, the builder and trades to ensure a wonderful outcome for ourselves. He assisted in choice of fittings and the minutia of fit out and was always available and responsive. Paul designed us a beautiful home, which we admire daily, love living in and enjoy immeasurably."
- Phillip Considine
McLauchlan Building Designers
Building Designers in Derrimut, Victoria
"The original concept design for our big renovation included everything we wanted. But it was the work Steve did making it all happen, to the finest detail on a very complicated project, that was amazing. He was always working for us, managing engineers, heating/ cooling, building surveyor, builder and other contributors to the design process, making sure we got a quality outcome without unnecessary expense. We are now about to commence - photos to come in 12 - 18 months!!!"
- Sam Dwyer
Positive Footprints Pty Ltd
Building Designers in Derrimut, Victoria
"Positive Footprints have done an outstanding job from the design stage right through to the building process. The house is on a small inner city block, with heritage and overlooking restrictions. My brief was for a sustainable house, with flexible spaces, outdoor vistas; which was light filled and capitalized on its northern sunny orientation. Extending only two meters kept the garden as large as possible. Three upstairs decks increase outdoor living, cross ventilation and the vistas of sky. Positive Footprints were professional, open and helpful; and provided impeccable craftsmanship. They enabled me to incorporate my mosaic tile designs, the use of unusual materials and other personal interior design choices. A melding of their inspired, sustainable design and my creative input, has resulted in a beautiful and comfortable house which is a pleasure to live in."

As with all other professional services for home design and renovation, the best way to choose a building designer in Derrimut, Victoria is to asses their past work against the style and requirements you have for your individual project.

How does a building designer differ from an architect?



The role of building designers has evolved from traditional drafting services to building design that takes into account your lifestyle, budget and site condition. Building designers in Derrimut, Victoria also often work with contractors to ensure that structural elements are in line with desired aesthetics.

It’s hard to draw a line between building designers and architects – both design homes and offer similar services. However, the main difference is that a building designer, in most states, isn’t required to register or licence with a regulatory figure.

The work of a building designer usually begins by interpreting your requirements into a sketched floor plan. Once agreed upon, the designer then moves on to the drafting and documentation stage, whereby drawings are submitted to council for approval. Some building designers also take care of contract management – that is, hiring builders, managing materials and labour costs, and advising you about any local council by-laws that may concern your project.

How do I find the right building designer for my home design project?



Most states don’t have specific registration processes for building designers, so it’s best that your search is based on past work and referrals. Some industry bodies or professional associations, such as the Building Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV), offer a list of members, which you can check against bodies such as the Victorian Building Authority (VBA), to gauge their type of work and any registration numbers. For instance, the VBA will provide you with draftsmen or draftspersons options within building design work for architectural, interior or general design services.


Once you have a shortlist of building designers in Derrimut, Victoria, engage in face-to-face talks about your brief, to ensure you’re on the same page. To get the most value for your money, you want someone who understands you, agrees with your ideas – in relation to sustainable design, space and function – and has the qualifications and enthusiasm to translate ideas to paper and into a reality.

Questions to ask prospective residential building designers in Derrimut, Victoria:



  • Have you completed any projects similar to my brief?
  • May I see examples of your previous work?

  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?

  • What license(s) do you have?

  • What other training and affiliations do you have?

  • How do you charge, and what does that include? How will I be charged for parts and materials?

  • Can you give me a written estimate?

  • What do your services include?

  • When can this job be completed?

  • What is your policy on change orders?

  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labour pricing?

  • What will I need to provide?

  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
