OUR DESIGN PROCESS

Although we tailor each project individually, here are the main stages of the process we go through:

Yeronga design

First,

we have a pre design meeting and make a client brief document that includes preliminary budget and general information about the site the house will be built on. This helps us set realistic targets and expectations of the project.

Second,

we have a site inspection to review the fall of the site, the breezes, the neighbouring properties and privacy considerations, the available views, access and services.

Third,

we firstly start the design process in two dimensions, formulating the plans and incorporating the requirements of the client brief and site assessment. Once we have finalised the plans, we meet and discuss the ideas behind the design and make any necessary changes that best suit your needs. We then incorporate these plans into our 3D software and provide exterior images of the project, again for our discussion purposes. Once the exterior design is completed, it is simply a matter of finalising the external elevations and sections for a selected builder to provide preliminary cost pricings.

Fourth,

we get all necessary approvals and start the building process. With many years of experience behind us, we try to make this step as smooth as possible, releasing you from all the stress this may bring.

Plus, for your convenience, we can schedule weekly site meetings in order to make sure the project runs as planned, always keeping the big picture in mind as well as paying attention to detail!

We came to Brad with nothing more than some pinterest pictures and some rough ideas of what we wanted for our new home.  What he presented to us was perfect.  We are so thankful that we engaged Brad to design our home.  He took the time to listen and always had a suggestion for our questions.  The whole process was simple, and the easy communication ensured that we always knew what was going on.  We have no hesitations in recommending Brad to anyone looking for an architecturally designed home.

Bradley Ashcroft and his team have been designing homes and townhouses for our clients for over 15 years. We find not only is Bradley very approachable and personable with both us and our clients but understands how to design and build to a specific budget. This not only saves a lot of time in the design process, it also saves a lot of heartache for clients from alternate processes where too often builder pricing does not meet with design brief specified outcomes. When builder and designer work together good outcomes are achieved and Grow DDC P/L  would recommend Bradley and his team to anyone looking for these types of outcomes in their projects.

Brad was very professional through all stages. He listened to our ideas and input and delivered something that we love to call home.

Shane, Brisbane

We have engaged Ashcroft Architects on two residential projects; one for a new house and the other for an extensive renovation. Brad is very professional and listened to all of our ideas and incorporated them into his designs. His knowledge in design/architecture and construction is very valuable and we highly recommend Ashcroft Architects.

I have worked with Ashcroft Architects for over a decade and have found Bradley Ashcroft to be a very talented and creative architect. Brad and the team at Ashcroft architects consistently provide excellent documentation that clearly describes the project in detail and allows construction to proceed unhindered and in a timely manner.

As a structural engineer it is a pleasure to work alongside an architect that appreciates the structural implications of their vision and works to accommodate solutions within the documentation produced.
