I engaged Scott Dawson at Blue Planet Design to do drawings for a large scale residential renovation project. His attention to detail and value for money was excellent. He kept us up to date at all stages and had all the latest technology so we could have the best experience. Best of all, our building experience was equally incredible because Scott suggested a builder that made our renovation experience a dream. I would highly recommend Scott Dawson to anyone who is looking for a high degree of expertise but without the high unnecessary $$$ to pay.

We spoke to Scott as he had assisted the previous owners of our house and the decision to engage Blue Planet was an easy one. The service was prompt, efficient and very professional. Scott took the time to explain and present all aspects of the design to us. There were no hidden charges or costs and no lengthy contracts with fine print to review.

Working with Scott was a pleasure, his ongoing advice and management through the process was excellent. We chose to work with Scott as he actively listened to our needs and help shape and firm our requirements in a collaborative manner. Scott was very responsive when we had changes or queries and his overall standard of work was very high. I would work with Scott again should the opportunity arise.

We used Blue Planet Design for our renovations and couldn’t be happier with the process and outcomes! Scott is very knowledgeable, efficient and (almost more importantly) is a warm and genuine person... we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Blue Planet Design! Sarah and Drew Brock

We would highly recommend Blue Planet Design for residential building design services and plans. Our project was a major home extension and renovation in a traditional character suburb. Scott Dawson's use of current technology, knowledge of development codes, communication and attention to detail was of a very high standard. It was a pleasure dealing with Scott who listened to our needs and accommodated them without any hassle. A highly professional service.
