The Design Partnership - TDP – is well placed to undertake your subdivision design.

As urban designers, we have the skills and many years of experience to successfully design and project manage your venture.

Our successes range from single lot suburban subdivisions – through to industrial precincts and on to broad scale residential projects upwards of 1000 lots.

If your site is not appropriately zoned for residential or industrial purposes, TDP can work with State or local authorities to achieve the re-zoning result you need.

Our subdivision design approach considers the scale of each site and its unique qualities – against a range of considerations:

  • micro climate
  • transportation and access concerns
  • green zones and wildlife preservation criteria
  • solar orientation
  • Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
  • Placemaking principles
  • water sensitive urban design measures
  • cultural precedents
  • community attitudes
  • indigenous sensibilities
  • socio-economic factors and others

Taken together, these considerations, when properly and thoughtfully addressed, can have a major impact on whether or not your project achieves the marketing success and customer desirability you’re aiming for.

Depending on the size and scope of your subdivision, TDP’s ‘fluid teams’ approach might also see the involvement of one or more of these specialists: surveyors, civil engineers, archaeologists, bushfire consultants, ecologists, landscape architects and public art consultants.
