Our Process

With Santolo, it’s easy. We’ll help you design your dream home while taking care of the complicated approval and paperwork process. Allow us to provide a free evaluation of your site to establish its restrictions and constraints. That way we can get started on the rest.

  • Initial Design Consultation & Site Measure

    • Sit down with us and tell us all about your vision. We’ll create a design brief so that we can ensure your concept is exactly what you imagined.

    • If you’re looking for an alteration or an addition to an existing structure, we’ll complete a full site measure and provide as-built drawings of your building.

  • Concept Design

    • Taking site constraints and the design brief into consideration, we’ll establish a concept design to suit your needs.

  • Design Development

    • After your concept design has been finalised, we’ll develop the design and get the right documentation ready for the Principal Certifying Authority (PCA – either council or private) for assessment and approval.

    • We’ll also liaise on your behalf with engineers and consultants to gain the necessary approvals for your project.

  • Council / PCA Submission

    • We’ll look after all submissions to the PCA so that you don’t have to worry about the complicated paperwork.

    • We’ll also liaise with the PCA during the assessment period and ensure that the project is on track to gaining approval.

  • Construction Documentation

    • Once receiving development approval, we’ll work on gaining construction approval as well as providing your builder with the documentation to begin construction.
