Excellent Professional Service

a year ago
I required assistance with some matters involving council. Not residing locally, I engaged the services of Place Designs to act on my behalf. At all times, I found Glen Place to be helpful, knowledgeable and professional, enabling all matters to be resolved to a successful conclusion. I am most grateful.

We used Place Designs recently for a new house plan and were very impressed with the professional service. Nothing was too much trouble and they made the design process for us very easy and stress free. I would highly recommend Place Designs.

We have used Place Designs several times over the years, most recently to design a free standing carport on our property. Place Designs provide advice that is practical and easy to understand. We cannot fault their professionalism, quality and knowledge and have no hesitation in recommending their 5 star service to others.

Returning customer

We have used Place Designs on more than one occasion and have been extremely happy with the level of service, professionalism and industry knowledge that Glen and his team offer. Glen assisted us with the design of our home some years back and when the time came to expand the business premises it was Place Designs we automatically turned to. Navigating your way through the requirements, rules and regulations of a Commercial expansion in this day and age is a minefield and fraught with hidden costs for the unwary. Glens knowledge of the industry is vast and in depth and made the whole process so much easier for us. Would highly recommend them to you. Don't stress, call the best.

High quality building designs

3 years ago
We highly recommend Place Designs for high quality building designs. Glen is highly professional, flexible, friendly and honest. He has many years of experience in building design and has exceptional knowledge of council regulatory, building guidelines and engineering requirements. We had several meetings with Glen and he always on time. He listened to our ideas, and requirements. He always gave us multiple options to consider which allowed us to make the right decisions. He made several amendments until we were happy with the final plan. He even made one last minute change without any hesitation. His work is thorough and detailed. We are very pleased with the final architectural design and it was a great experience for us.

Excellent Service and Great Designs!

3 years ago
My husband and I have utilised Place Designs on 3 separate occasions. Glen and Kieron have assisted with quality designs, attention to detail plans and provided timely revisions. I would not hesitate to recommend Place Designs to my friends and family. If you want things planned the right way, and built right the first time, these are the people to use to design your home, plan the extension or for your husband's little bit of paradise (aka man cave). Using Place Designs meant there were no unexpected surprises for our builder (or addded costs for us) during the build due to poorly detailed plans.

Thank you Caroline for your kind review. It is good to know that our clients are happy with our design work. Obtaining repeat work from our clients is extra gratifying. Glen & Kieron

Industrial design

3 years ago
We needed a quick turnaround on an industrial extension with tight deadlines and Glen from Place Designs was happy to deliver. This project had to be designed, certified and constructed before the Christmas closure to enable the tenant to move in and start trading in Early January. Place Designs was honest with their time frames and costs and delivered in both regards. Place Designs plans are always easy to read and complete which enabled us to meet our deadlines. Glen and his team are very knowledgeable and have vast experience in the building industry and this is evident in their delivery. I recommend Place Designs to anyone looking to build that requires honest and complete plans. Well done Glen and the team.

Thanks to Glen & Kieron from Place Designs for the dedication in showing our clients the effortless path to having their dream project come to fruition. Place Designs worked well with our clients in producing a Residential Design to suit their requirements and budget. As a builder, Place Design plans are always a pleasure to use as no follow up information is needed to complete the project. It will be a pleasure doing business with Place Design in the future. We wish them well. Cheers Barry & Cheryl Green Barry Green Pty Ltd

POOL AND VERANDAH EXTENSION DRAWINGS

4 years ago
Place Designs is my designer of choice. We are currently undertaking a new pool install , pool fencing, and certification of our outdoor area extension. Glen provided the requested documentation within 24hrs of attending site to assist us in speeding the process of approval. I recommend Glen & his team, as they understand the requirements of the people on the ground who want to get things done.

Building Design

4 years ago
We decided to build an observation platform to enhance our view of the Whitsunday Islands from our "modern Queenslander" designed by Gabriel Poole. Our builder, Barry Green, agreed with our concept of a small room at the top of a spiral staircase and recommended we ask Glen Place to design a structure which would be strong but not detract from the appearance of the house. Glen's design of the spiral staircase was very much better and more practical than one designed originally for us by a southern company. He was able to collaborate with the local fabricator, Halliwell Fabrications, our builder and others to produce just what we wanted and also meet council requirements.
Dennis and Joan - Mackay

Owner's Response

Thank you Dennis & Joan for your kind review. It is always gratifying to know that the client is pleased with the final project outcome. Place Designs always tries to ensure that the clients’ expectations are met and even exceeded where possible. Thank you.

We used Glen Place from Place Designs to do the building design work for us to add a covered outdoor area and to remove an internal wall that was both supporting and a tie-down wall. Glen did an excellent job. Two major motivating factors for us were that Glen was the original designer of our house over 20 years ago (so we knew that his work worked!) and that he also included the engineering work in his scope. Both Glen and the engineer had a flexible approach to achieving the necessary structural integrity whilst meeting our aesthetic wishes. We are very pleased with the final result and would definitely use Place Designs again for work on our current house or another one.
Paul and Maree - Bucasia

Owner's Response

Thank you Paul & Maree for your review. To have clients that are pleased with the end result and knowing that the design has fully satisfied their needs is extremely gratifying.

New Home build

5 years ago
We would highly recommend Glen Place & his team to anyone wishing to build a new home, being new to Mackay Glen was able to help us with the local council rules & regulations and he was upto date within the building regulations and requirements. Glen's knowledge of the local area also helped us to overcome some land obsticals that presented themself during the plan layout. Glen listened to what our budget and personal requirements were to come up with our final plans. We are extremely happy with the finish of our home.
Wayne & Chris Thornton - Slade Point

Owner's Response

Thank you Wayne & Christine for your kind remarks. It was a pleasure working with you both. It is always good working with people who are open to suggestions and forthcoming with their feedback throughout the design phase. Thank you.

We can highly recommend Glen Place Designs for high quality work and help with design, after building and renovating fitness clubs, and renovations at our residence. They have excellent knowledge of Council and building guidelines, and always meet our tight deadlines for both commercial & residential and are always willing to go on-site. Thanks!

We can thoroughly recommend the design and support services offered by Glen and the team at Place Designs. Our brief, containing multiple design, engineering, planning and financial challenges proved no problem to Glen. His vast experience combined with a consultative and co-operative approach allowed us to consider multiple options that would create the house that was right for our family. The flexibility in adjusting the design until we were happy to approve a final plan was limitless. Furthermore, Glen's intricate knowledge of the planning and approval process was invaluable when the daunting task of obtaining correct local government planning certification arose. In summary, we were very happy with both the professional services, and the finished product and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Place Designs to others.

I would highly recommend the services of Glen Place. I found him extremely professional and approachable and his ability to adapt to my personal requirements in building and renovating our home resulted in him coming up with the ultimate design. His years of experience in many areas of the building industry and his knowledge of government and council rules and regulations proved invaluable to me and enabled me to avoid/overcome potential problems along the way. Not only does he have the highest expertise in producing quality architectural designs, but his knowledge of building and engineering requirements add to the total professional package.
Denis Moeser - Walkerston

Thank you Denis for your review. It is always satisfying as a designer to know your client is pleased with your service. Place Designs wishes you all the best for the future.

We have had Glen from Place Designs design a garage extension. We have found him to be very prompt, professional and very sound with his advice. He works co-operatively with the builder and engineer. Would recommend him to anyone.
Jenny and Peter - Mackay

Owner's Response

Thank you Peter & Jenny for your kind post. Design is made easier when clients work constructively with the designer. We look forward to see the work proceed in the near future. Remember we are just a phone call away if you need any future assistance with the project. It is all part of the service.
