We will discuss your ideas, thoughts & ambitions about your new home or extension.
New Home Energy & Design provide design and energy rating services for various applications. We strive to maintain a high standard of excellence and professionalism in Australia's domestic building & energy efficiency industry. We will ensure that you are kept informed of developments of your project at every stage.
Design that will exceed your expectations
A site feature survey is carried out to determine all measurements, ground levels and contours. Following this, New Home Energy & Design will conduct a soil test, this will give us details of soil classification, drainage and if we may encounter rock.
We now will complete a siting using the concept drawings showing areas of cut/fill any retaining walls that maybe needed then providing finished floor levels and driveway gradient.
If your project requires town planning,
then there will be some requirements
- A pre-application meeting with council
- Site investigation & Document layout of existing conditions
- Adjoining building description & neighbourhood character
- Design Response
- All floor plans & external elevations
- Shadow diagram as required
- External material & colour schedules
- Documented Town planning report
- Landscape plans
- Obtain current copy of title via titles office
Once you are happy with the initial design concept we will then prepare plans ready for either council
or developer approval. We highly recommend that any major changes are made at this early stage.
Some developments require landscape design applications, NHE&D can also provide all this and more for you.
Once the concept design has been finalized, we have approval from either the council or developer; we are ready to produce the final working drawings. A full set of working drawings will consist of but not limited to;
✓ Site Plan, Floor Plans, External Elevations
✓ Detailed sections as required
✓ Lintel & timber schedule
✓ Door & window schedules
✓ Foundation & penetration layouts
✓ Full electrical/lighting schedule
✓ Energy Rating
✓ Artificial Light Calculation
as per N.C.C part 3.12
✓ Glazing calculation
as per N.C.C part 3.12
✓ Soil Report
✓ Building Permit
application form and liaison
On request New Home Energy & Design can produce detailed internal drawings, including kitchen design, bathroom/ensuite design and laundry layout. Once working drawings are complete, New Home Energy & Design will order any other engineering requirements such as design and computation to beams and foundations.
We will conduct a thermal performance assessment of your project, with the optimum orientation and basic design principles in mind during the whole process. The most economical and environment methods will be exhausted to calculate your energy rating for your new project.
An energy assessment can also be obtained for existing homes, this can provide you with information that may help solve some ‘Hot & Cold’ issues both with in your home and the hip pocket. This is in conjunction with compliance to current government regulations (star rating) for the building fabric plus water-saving measures, and the installation of either a rain water tank or a solar hot water service.
We also provide
- DTS (deemed to satisfy) reports as per
NCC Part 3.12
- ESD (environmentally sustainable design) reposts for town planning residential & commercial construction
- Thermal performance rating on existing dwellings
