Why Alex?

Individual Design has its rewards: one-on-one contact to meet client/builder requirements, designing around location demands (one standard design does not suit everyone) and with your choice of builder or owner builder too.  Formally qualified with many years of practical design experience in this State. A  multiple winner and finalist of many design awards, we work with you.

A little about us:

Starting the practice many years ago in the belief that we could provide a personal approach to designing buildings no matter where; the degree of difficulty  – bringing together both experience, affordability and fresh ideas. Rather than being part of a large company with  costly overheads, the client or builder benefits by becoming involved with all aspects, dealing directly with WDG. We document everything rather than contracting out. A raft of consultants are available should they be required.

WDG will work with you in achieving guidelines associated with Livable Housing Design.

Projects can from all client sources: commercial syndicates or the wider community. The approach has always to bring ideas, some practical, others slightly different. Often the circumstance is
complex and challenging: a mixture of regulations, policies and a desire to deliver a creative opportunity, resulting in that no two projects being the same.

Over time  WDG have added qualifications; skills required to ensure competence, diversity and interest. Similarly by belonging to many Institutes and Associations, these memberships ensure keeping abreast of current issues.

Have a thorough look through the website – should you place your trust in pursuing a design for any sort of building, WDG will certainly be there for you.
