    How will a building designer add value to my project?

    There are two key ways that our Mornington Peninsula building design team will add value to your product: First of all, we'll only hand over your project to your chosen builder when we know it's ready to be built. This means that you'll have approvals, structural requirements, and your own personal needs all met before we engage with the team who'll be executing your project. This ensures that there are no delays or back-and-forth which will save you time, headaches and money. Secondly, by engaging a team with experience in home development and restructuring, you're ensuring a different perspective which can bring opportunities for a more considered final product. Ultimately, a home that has been professionally designed will also create a more enjoyable living experience and opportunity for financial gains when it comes time to sell.

    Do you offer Interior Design as well as Building Design?

    Yes, Interior Design can be provided to you as part of our optional services. If you'd like to engage our team for design support, we'll work closely with you to assist you in making interior design choices such as internal colours, fixtures and fittings, materials and can even provide full room specifications. If you're interested in more detailed interior design support (such as for decisions around furniture and artwork selections), we can work directly with an interior design consultant.

    What’s the difference between Third Elemend and a Draftsman or Architect?

    In Australia there are three main professions who can help you with the design and development of your home. Think of us as the middle-man between a draftsperson and an Architect. By trade, a building designer carries more certifications than a Draftsman and that level of experience allows us to consider and provide our recommendations on the end-to-end process of your structural build and design.

    Are you only offering Building Design for projects located on the Mornington Peninsula?

    Whilst working with the local councils and builders on the Mornington Peninsula is our specialty, our work spans across Melbourne and beyond and we'd love to discuss your project, no matter the location.

    Can you help design my renovation?

    We sure can. At Third Element, our projects range from larger renovations through to full extensive home remodels & extensions, new residential builds, multi-residential properties & also commercial renovations. We'd love to chat with you about the renovation project you've got in mind. Feel free to book in a no-obligation 15 minute phone consult via our Contact Page to get the ball rolling.
