Melbourne Townhouse & Unit Development Designs

With cost of living increases, a rise in housing prices and our ever-growing population, higher-density townhouse and apartment developments are critical in providing the future of Australia’s housing. At Rogers Architects & Planners, we specialise in residential development with a practical and real-world approach.

We handle the process from end-to-end, from feasibility & design through the planning & building permit process, tendering and construction. Having successfully obtained over 400 Planning Permits and delivered more than 1000 new units, apartments and townhouses in Melbourne alone, we have the experience you can trust to make your project a reality.

Cost control

At Rogers Architects & Planners we understand that cost control is critical to a successful development. Having many projects under construction at any time, we have real-world knowledge of construction pricing and market variations. Our designs and cost estimates from day-one are based on current market prices to give your project confidence in the final pricing of your project.

As architects, our depth of construction knowledge is translated into our designs to ensure effective cost control measures are implemented from an early design stage – avoiding costly variations at the building stage! We understand that cost control is critical to a successful development and tailor our fees and services package to suit your project-specific requirements.

Collaboration

Obtaining Planning & Building Permits is a complex process requiring numerous expert consultants designs, reports and assessments. At Rogers Architects & Planners we have a team of trusted consultants to collaborate with in providing the required reports, designs and assessments for obtaining Planning Permits & Building Permits.
