A Better Design has just completed a comprehensive design of a second multi-unit development for my company.  Through lateral thinking and expert analysis of the existing conditions A Better Design was able to design units that were an excellent solution to a complex planning situation.  Small innovations and a flexible approach resulted in attractive designs that I was able to easily sell off the plan.

When required, A Better Design has relationships with expert consultants for solving particular landscaping, engineering and planning problems.  A Better Design led the planning approval process.

For me, the bottom line was that Archie and his team was able to efficiently and economically produce quality designs that market well.  All of the six units in this latest development were sold off the plan in a few weeks.  They were all sold for their asking prices before I was able to begin construction!

My company has had a ten year relationship with Archie the principal of A Better Designs.  Over that time he has designed units, townhouses and houses for us.  His assistance has been invaluable when negotiating with the local Council and when necessary with VCAT.  He has contacts with independent town planners, arborists and other people which assist with the successful completion of projects.  I have no hesitation in recommending Archie and have been very happy with service.

Having initially having a Concept Design done with another Architectural firm I found the progress very slow to take the project further, through another contact in the building Industry I was given ABetter Design’s number.

After my first meeting with Archie I had immediate confidence he could deliver the project to my satisfaction & time frame, after the start of many meetings I found his input & suggestions made sense to the overall outcome while still working within his understanding of the Councils guide lines, along the way he was willing to make even the most minor changes to the plans to suit my requirements.

I would have no hesitation to use this Company again or recommend to friends.
