Our designers have over 35 years experience designing to the conditions presented by the Mackay Region and North Queensland generally. Place Designs strives to design new residences that are individual, innovative, environmentally responsible and use the appropriate construction method. Our services also extend to restorations, major renovations, carport/ garage additions, internal modifications/minor renovations. Each Place Designs house is tailored to suit your specific needs. Over the last 35 years, designs have included homes for country blocks, small city lots, renovations, commercial, industial and multi-residential.

As part of the design process, we arrange an initial meeting to gain an understanding of your needs and wants, often requiring a preliminary site visit, before putting together a design based on your brief.

It is of vital importance that the design and construction of your project suits the building location, including:

  • Using cost effective construction methods that suit the contour and drainage of the land
  • Accessing prevailing breezes and establishing effective air movement pathways
  • Using renewable building products for ecological sustainability
  • Maximising views from living areas
  • Minimising the effects of the western sun
  • Aesthetics to suit the environment for example beach house, Queenslander, Contemporary, Colonial, and other themes

Our designers provide computer drawn plans that are well documented and easy for both you and your builder to read and understand. We are aware of town planning requirements in the Mackay Region, which gives us the benefit of minimising the risk of issues arising at the development application stage.
