How We Do What We Do

Architecture starts with an idea.


At Dig Design we live and breathe architectural ideas and will form a tailored and creative design position for your project based on our listening and understanding of your specific needs.  Our design process is open and collaborative, ideas are discussed throughout the process drawing on the creativity and technical expertise of the entire Dig Design team … and that team includes you.


At Dig Design we value your input and your unique insight.  When you talk, we listen [carefully] to gain a clear understanding of your needs, aspirations and priorities … after all, this is a project about you.


Your partners in the process, Dig Design will be there to guide and support you from first idea to turning the key to your [new] home, as we will work with you to create an innovative, contemporary and quality architectural solution … in the end it is your happiness that drives our success.

Fixed Fee Feasibility + Concept Packages

You’re not always ready to jump straight into a full service package.  You might need some help to understand the possibilities in your project.

Below you will find information on two packages that can either work in tandem or independently, giving you the confidence to move forward with your project.  Set on fixed fees, which are deducted from our full service packages when you move forward with Dig Design.

Brief + Possibilities Package

Our Brief + Possibilities Package, is an evolution of what we use to refer to as our Feasibility Service.  We still provide feasibility services within our Brief + Possibilities Package, but we also include some additional information including useful templates and guides that help form the commencement of your project.  With the BPP, we will investigate and explain your options giving you the confidence and knowledge to move forward with the next step … design.

The Brief + Possibilities Package is delivered to you as a report that includes desktop reviews of:

–  site assessment

–  existing conditions assessment

–  local council assessment

–  neighbourhood review

–  mud maps

–  budget ballparks

All that for a fixed fee, which is deducted from our full service package fees when you move forward with Dig Design®.

$  1,400*  Two dwellings.

$ 2,500*  Three to six dwellings.

TBC          Seven plus dwellings, contact Dig Design for pricing.

Concept Design Package

Offered as an add on the Brief + Possibilities Package, the Concept Design Package is an in depth look at what is possible on your site with a full concept plan developed, with up to two revisions if necessary.  Please note this is a full plan only, elevations and 3Ds come when you choose to move forward with one of our full service packages.

Again, this is a fixed fee service, which is deducted from our full service package fees when you move forward with Dig Design.

$  1,800*  Single storey alterations + additions..

$ 2,200*  Two storey extension or single level new residence.

$ 3,000*  Two storey new residence.

*  All fees are payable in AUD and exclude GST and reimbursements, which will be added to your invoice.
