Free Initial Design Consultation

When you are ready to embark on your renovation project give the team at Smits + Leigo a ring and we will come out and meet you at your home for a free design consultation. We will listen and understand the scope of your project and take you through our unique project process. After this consultation we will be able to give you a locked in fee proposal for our team’s services from beginning to end allowing you to plan your finances and know with certainty what your design will cost.

Brainstorming Session

Collaboration + Design

Once you’ve chosen Smits + Leigo we will partner with you to create the perfect design for your renovation project. Our expert design team will lead you through the design process and work with you to add value. This may take as few as two face to face meetings or it may be a longer run affair depending on the complexity of your project. At this stage we will produce for you the drawings needed to seek approval from your local council or private certifier.

Stautory Approvals

The team at Smits + Leigo are experts in statutory approvals for building projects, having honed our skills in the commercial market for thirty years. One of the most stressful parts of any project is seeking the approval of your neighbours and local council. Smits + Leigo can take this off your plate, everything from the documentation required through to meeting with council. And if there are any changes required we will amend the drawings appropriately in consultation with you.

Building Plans


Smits + Leigo believes that if you want something done properly you call an expert, our team are expert designers and architects, we are not builders. We do however partner with a range of expert builders and contractors that are as committed to a successful project as we are. Once you have council approval to move forwards with your design we will assist in finding you the right contractor to bring your renovation to life. However we will not abandon you! We will continue to monitor and oversee the project through construction so you don’t need to worry!

Completion + Defects

One of the most stressful parts of any renovation is closing out the project, what happens if something is not quite right? Smits + Leigo will carry out a full and exhaustive defects inspection at the end of your project and then work with our partner builder to ensure that any defects are quickly and perfectly rectified, leaving you with a successful renovation.
