“Scott Dawson from Blue Planet Design was engaged to design a significant extension to a 25 year old brick/timber house. Scott provided an excellent comprehensive service from first contact to final submission. Scott understood our objectives for the extension and proposed a number of options. The process was always consultative, Scott listened to all our thoughts and feedback, incorporated them with his own twist allowing us to arrive at a great design. His use of technology to create and distribute drawing packs was refreshing and certainly helped in finalising the design as I was out of town extensively during the process. His management and engagement of engineers, certifiers and other consultants was transparent allowing us to have full confidence we were always getting the right outcome. I would highly recommend Blue Planet Design for any building project.”

"The design was great and to budget and on time. Now that that the build is just about complete the transformation of the old 80's house is clear. Plenty of the people in the street have made comment on the design all positive and can't believe the difference was possible."
We are really happy with the design and our builder said the plans are excellent and very detailed. Even the finance officer said the plans were very detailed and easy to follow! The process was easy and the guidance was good for first time renovators like us. We are about to start building this week!

“We engaged Blue Planet Design after a referral from our building certification company. At first it was to get advice if the proposed project would even be cost effective, then draw plans for our renovation which involved raising, gutting, extending and building under the house. One of the things that impressed me about Scott was his knowledge of all facets of the renovation industry. Scott asked what we wanted and gave multiple options on how this could be achieved within our budget. If needed I would use Scott again and would have no hesitation in recommending Scott for your project”.
“A quick note to thank you for all the time and effort spent on the design of our house.

Thank you for turning our design sketches into plans which we are now eagerly awaiting to be built. We have no hesitation in recommending your service to anyone”.
