McLauchlan Building Designers
McLauchlan was founded by Robert McLauchlan in 1979 with a passion for finding creative and practical solutions for all types of building projects within a specific budget. Rob is a respected leader in the building design industry and a fellow and past president of the BDAV (now known as Design Matters). McLauchlan Building Designers (MBD) is heavily involved with Habitat for Humanity, a not for profit organisation which assists low-income families to achieve the dream of owning their own safe and secure home. In January 2019, the business was acquired by Jahan Trevena - an experienced building engineer, draftsman and building surveyor. He is also trained in fire and civil engineering and has worked as a registered building surveyor and auditor for large engineering consultancies such as Sinclair Knight Mertz, Napier and Blakeley and Bruce Hollioake & Associates. He is also the founder of the successful building surveying practice, Lighthouse Building Permits, with offices located in Ballarat and Horsham. For 40 years, MBD has built a reputation of being a reliable, experienced provider of quality and practical building advice and documentation. MBD are committed to working closely with you to develop ideas, meet needs, and work within budgets. We approach each project thoughtfully, always considering the possible benefits of innovative solutions. Our talented team of highly skilled building designers and architects aim to create purposeful design solutions and visually arresting concepts in response to client’s briefing, aspirations, and objectives. Through thinking laterally and innovatively and using space efficiently, we can make your budget go further, maximise your investment and add real value to your home or development site. We use the latest 3D computer modelling software which allows you to readily visualise and contribute to the development of the design. The company continue to deliver higher than expected results with a strong record for compliance, council approvals and above-market property valuations.
