You can rest assured that you will work with qualified professionals who can guide you all the way through the design, planning permit and building permit processes and if required can help with the construction stage of your project.

So far, in DSP’s 25-year history, we’ve enjoyed a 100% success rate in obtaining both the planning permit as well as building permits.  And that’s unlikely to change.  What’s more, if we at DSP agree to a deadline then you can be assured that it will be met.

Because at DSP, we keep our promises.

This allows you to focus on what you are good at whilst saving you money by decreasing your interest payments and holding costs.

The Right Solution

During our 25 years in practice we have always found “the right solution” for our Clients.  As property and building prices continue to soar gone are the days where purchasers accept less for their dollar.  In almost all cases it is the quality of the design that makes the difference.

The difference could be as simple as getting a permit for a

  • 3 bedroom dwelling rather than a 2 bedroom dwelling. (click for example)
  • 3 dwellings rather than just 2 dwellings.
  • 4 dwellings rather than 3 dwellings (click for example)
  • Three bedrooms and a study rather than just three bedrooms (click for example)
  • Two living areas rather than just one

Equating to having tens of thousands of dollars in your pocket.

Or simply peace of mind in knowing that the job was done right first time
