Building design & drafting.
Meticulous and accomplished. Attentive and versatile.
When it comes to home design and drafting we will assist you through the process and will merge your vision with our expert advice and unique approach to bespoke home design.
6+ star energy ratings.
Home design must align with the stars and we will help you achieve this.
Since 2009, Belco Group have been the ‘go to’ in the Geelong and surrounding regions when it comes to 6 star energy ratings, assisting owner builders, architects and builders from small to volume.
Passive house design.
Passive Solar Design is incredibly important for how liveable your home is in different seasons.
Our 3D computer modelling can calculate and illustrate how much natural light is gained through windows and doors located in the home. Shadow diagrams will help guide clever passive solar design based on the homes orientation and season, to suit your needs.
Drone videography & photography.
Using the latest drone technology, we’re able to gather amazing images and video that previously could only be taken from a plane.
High resolution overhead images and video, cinematic video sequences, and landscape images are only a few of the things these devices are capable of.
One less thing to think about.
A vital part of the design process are the feature surveys and levels required for planning the homes design based on local and State requirements. We provide this information as part of our
Belco Group documentation, making it one less thing you need to think of.
It’s not that exciting, but it’s necessary.
Belco Group offers Town Planning documentation and design services when required for the planning of the home.
If you are a visual person, you will love our 3D documentation.
3D documentation will provide you with a tangible view of how your home will look and help picture yourself within it.
Bushfire design &
We understand the needs of designing homes in the Australian landscape and have experience designing homes in bushfire prone areas along the Surfcoast.
Going local when it comes to designing homes for bushfire prone areas is imperative when it comes to local knowledge and understanding of this particular home design process.
All Australians benefit from homes designed with comfort, safety
and ease of access as core design features. These features make the home easier for parents to maneuver prams, easier to carry the shopping into the house, easier for people with disability or temporary
injury to get around and easier to move furniture.
A livable home is designed to:
• be easy to enter
• be easy to navigate in and around
• be capable of easy and cost-effective adaptation, and
• be responsive to the changing needs of home occupants.
