About

Overview

At BY Projects Architecture we embrace a quality design approach with client collaboration throughout the Design and Construction process. From Site Selection, Feasibility Studies, Urban Design and Master Planning, through all Design, Interior Design and Documentation stages for private and public sector developments we offer total Project Management services, endeavoring to fully realise the client’s vision. We are highly skilled Architects with a diverse and extensive range of project experience. We have a strong focus on Sustainability, Accessibility and Affordability and a commitment to Innovative Construction Technologies with practical deployment.

We are able to provide expertise for a vast selection of service including creative conceptual designs, feasibility studies, community consultation, and master planning. In essence, BY Projects Architecture is a design-based practice which offers innovative solutions to architectural environments. An architectural design is more than a drawing or a budget. The design of any construction must reflect the client's aspirations as well as the community it will join. We believe in a collaborative approach to all projects and are committed to every aspect of our design, following a project with close architect consultancy and project management throughout each stage.

The BY Projects Architecture Team

From the first meeting with project leaders, BY Projects presents a detailed work program for all stages, to ensure target dates are achieved. Included in this would be an allowance for the consultation process and responding to all stakeholders.

The Principal Architect of BY Projects would participate as the project leader in the head consultant group, coordinating all phases and organising all client responses. The team is then able to mobilise and allocate resources to commence design services on projects immediately on request.

BY Projects offer a consultative team approach to all projects, and propose the use of the additional consultant groups including the services of: Planning Consultants, Traffic Consultants, Surveyors, Quantity Surveyors, Building Surveyors, Geotechnical Engineers, Energy Consultants, Structural Engineers, and Services Engineers incorporating Mechanical, Electrical, Fire Services, Hydraulics, and Lift services.

The project team is led by Barbara Yerondais, who strongly believes in a collaborative approach to all projects and has near to 30 years of professional experience.

Services

BY Projects Architecture offer a range of services, from early Feasibility Studies through to Construction, complete with total Project Management.

We are committed to a social purpose; and through the coalition of technical, aesthetic and economic forces, we seek to provide innovative and sustainable solutions. We endeavour to ensure that our designs are brought to completion on time and on budget.

Our designs are a response to both the client’s aspirations and the site conditions, with an emphasis on designing for Sustainability and good Urban Design principles. All our designs are given careful consideration as to appropriate construction methods, location, scale and economic expectations.

Feasibility Studies

A thoroughly prepared Feasibility or Yield Study will set the potential development for a given project. It will clarify the marketing parameters and establish the process of obtaining development approvals, and most importantly, the budget can be established and profitability levels predicted.

At BY Projects, we advise that Feasibility Study be prepared for most developments prior to embarking on full consultation services, with the scope of a Feasibility Study can vary depending on the project.

The simplest of residential renovations will require preliminary advice to establish a scope of work, an appropriate budget, and an assessment of planning scheme restrictions.
A more complex feasibility studies will assess the yield of potential developments against the planning scheme requirements, together with processing marketing data and assessing the risks associated with large-scale projects.

Master Planning

A detailed and well considered Master Plan gives due consideration to all aspects of a designed environment.

Designed environments must embrace an inclusive Urban Design Principles, and reflect the community intent. Building relationships and scale are critical, whilst landscaping elements will also enhance all built environments.

Good Master Planning will also consider construction programming and staging, including site accessibility and material procurement.

At BY Projects, we ensure all Master Plans reflect the Developers funding, whilst presenting innovative design principles.
