What They Say






" We had a difficult DA submitted for a duplex in Leichhardt council. We found Alex's input as town planner very helpful. He spent a lot of time mounting an argument for something the council tried to deny. His and the team's inside knowledge of the LEP was invaluable.

I would have no hesitation in recommending The Plan Shop to others. "

" We would thoroughly recommend The Plan Shop to anyone looking for reliable and quality building designers without an exorbitant price tag. We have happily used them to design our home renovations, manage development applications at council and coordinate construction certificate.

Our experience of the joint design process was really straightforward and were very pleased with the plans and design solutions they developed. Builders we engaged remarked on the quality of plans they had drafted.

At all times we have found the staff to be attentive, friendly and efficient in responding to us and communicating with council on our behalf. We have really appreciated their design skill and also their invaluable knowledge and guidance in the sometimes tricky process of having DAs approved! "

" The Plan Shop has designed and facilitated the Council Approval of our renovation in Roseville. We are delighted with the final plans and ideas, patience and diligence of the Plan Shop team. The whole process from start to finish was handled with minimum fuss. We happily recommend The Plan Shop. "

" My wife and I would recommend The Plan Shop to everyone… in fact we have already started! The Plan Shop team is down to earth in their dealings and are very reassuring. They came up with some great ideas that we have implemented in our design. If you want to deal with honest, competent and professional people, go with The Plan Shop. "

" From my initial inquiry, through to consultations and planning, working with The Plan Shop team has been a pleasure. Open and friendly communication kept me updated on every step of the development and the gradual billing system makes keeping in budget easy.

Working with The Plan Shop team has been a collaborative, stress free experience that has given me the home I have always dreamed of. I would thoroughly recommend The Plan Shop for your home renovations. "

" The team at The Plan Shop are fantastic. I had previously had a very unpleasant experience with another design company and was fairly skeptical about moving forward with my additions at all.

After my first consultation, I felt relieved to have found the team at the Plan Shop. The price was fair and they handled both Development Application and Construction Certificate. The concept design and submission stages moved swiftly and I appreciated their willingness to push the boundaries with Council to achieve the outcome I desired. They negotiated in person with the planning officers on more than one occasion, unwilling to be bound by their unreasonable demands.

From start to finish The Plan Shop have been generous with their time, exceedingly patient and always professional. I have recommended the team to neighbours and colleagues alike and will continue to use their services for my forthcoming developments.

Working with The Plan Shop team has been a collaborative, stress free experience that has given me the home I have always dreamed of. I would thoroughly recommend The Plan Shop for your home renovations. "

" Thanks so much to the Plan Shop for the seamless and trouble free process of getting our renovation plans drafted and through council. The town planning service through the plan shop was outstanding and made for a relatively trouble free experience. The plan shop were able to translate our ideas and requirements into a functional design along the way adding their own experience and expertise to the design for a great overall result. Thanks again, "

" We first used The Plan Shop to assist with the design of a difficult attic ensuite space. As we both work full time, we found the team to be very flexible with meeting times that suited us and the time spent by the team on site meant the ultimate design exceeded our expectations. Throughout the process they consulted and shared ideas so there was minimal rework required with the final plans.

We then used The Plan Shop to assist with design and lodgement of a DA. Living in a catchment area that requires environmental reports, heritage reports and many other local council requirements, they take care of everything including seeking advice from lawyers when we found ourselves in a challenging situation with the council. Being able to outsource this to the experts at The Plan Shop really took some stress out of a challenging situation. The team went over and above expectation in advising us on options including pros and cons of our DA and consulting with lawyers so we could make an informed decision understanding the risks. "
