Dual Design has been operating in the Eurobodalla since 1992 and in that time has successfully completed projects ranging from small additions to Integrated Housing Projects.

Increasingly Dual Design has been involved in Project Management as the process of submitting Development Applications has increased in complexity. We specialise in simplifying this process for our clients and follow through with the project after Council Submission. We facilitate not only the assessment process but also include coordination of the necessary documentation to enable a Construction Certificate to be issued so building can begin once approval has been granted. Throughout the process consultation with the clients is extensive to ensure their brief requirements are met; while still considering Council Control Plans and relevant consultants recommendations to maximise the opportunity for a successful submission that gains approval. Our success in this process directly results from a collaborative approach when working with Council and the required consultants which comes from strong connections to the community. The extensive amount of built projects further reflects the success of this process.

Customer Focused
Environmentally Friendly
25+ Years Experience

Increasingly material selection that is sustainable in its production and does not pollute the environment is requested and we guide our clients through this selection process in consultation with local suppliers to ensure the selected finishes can be readily sourced locally thereby reducing the carbon footprint of the construction process.

Prestigious Design

Quality design that respects the environment within which the project will reside (including good passive solar design principles) and addresses the clients individual brief.
New dwellings or alterations and additions that upgrade the dwelling are commissions we welcome. No job is to small for Dual Design.

Feasibility Studies

Integrated Housing projects that will maximise the yield on site while still complying with all associated development control plans and local environment plans to ensure approval.

Detail Design

External and internal colour palettes can be provided with consideration to the natural or built context/siting. Material selection and detailing with reference to budgets included in the service provided if required.

Application Coordination

Submission to Council for Development Application Approval; including coordination of all consultants required, and guiding the application through the assessment process is increasingly required due to the complexity of the process. Dual Design submits all the documentation and follows through until approval granted.

Biography

Katrina Scobie graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Environmental Design in 1986 followed by a Bachelor of Architecture from Curtin University in 1989. After completing her studies Katrina travelled for two years through South-East Asia and Europe finally settling in the South Coast. Katrina established the business Dual Design in July 1992. This business has is still active; with family life and a 3 year management role for BHI Architects Batemans Bay office the only interruption.

Over the years many successful projects have been constructed and strong relationships forged with local contractors, suppliers, consultants and council staff. The business expanded to not only provide a prestigious design service that respects site and community; but to include the navigation required through the approval processes and systems that have significantly grown in complexity.

The positive results reflected in the vast amount of projects built in the area is a testament to Dual Design. The successful approach has been undertaken with constant client consultation and consideration. Electronic media and computer aided design enables even the most remote client to be connected throughout the design and approval process. Three dimensional interactive cad images are an additional service which is a great tool for both clients and assessors to examine the proposed designs.

Katrina Scobie is an active member of the Community having held positions on many community committees thereby giving back to the community that has supported her business from so many years. In addition to the community work Dual Design has provided a platform to promote the field of building design by mentoring and encouraging local students to consider this exciting field.

Katrina was great to work with from our very first meeting. She transformed our ideas into plans which have resulted in the house of our dreams. It is both functional and gorgeous! Katrina really listened to us, and while she advanced fabulous ideas as well, she never imposed her views. She was absolutely invaluable in guiding it through the approval process, and her knowledge of local government built up over years was priceless. She also has an enviable relationship withe the best builders who can realise the vision you build up. We would recommend Katrina to anyone wanting a hard-working, responsive building designer who was on top of the brief right from the first day.

Extremely happy with the designs

We met Katrina Scobie of Dual Design after a recommendation from a builder in Narooma. We were looking for someone with innovative ideas for a housing development project we wanted to get underway. After our first meeting, we knew she was the person for the job! She took on board all of our ideas and gave us plenty of great suggestions. She answered our queries there and then with her wealth of knowledge for construction in the area. She followed up with her own investigations on Council matters and presented us with a set of concept drawings we could easily get our head around and would meet Council requirements. We have the utmost praise for her professionalism and attention to detail and are extremely happy with the designs she has created for us. We look forward to working with her on the next stage, construction.

No hesitation recommending Dual Design

Over the last 10 years or so I have constructed multiple renovations, additions & new dwellings using Dual Design plans which have all the detail that is required & are easy to read. I have found Katrina very good to work with and most helpful with some of the tricky problems that invariably crop up from time to time. Whether it is design changes or authority rulings she has been prompt sorting out the problems for me which I thank her for. She is very good at liaising with Council on DA applications & rulings which makes my job a lot easier also. My clients have all been very happy with Katrina’s design projects so I have no hesitation recommending Dual Design for any design jobs.

Made our building projects run smoother

We have used Dual Design for both residential and commercial developments. Having Katrina help us navigate the complex world of local and state government requirements definitely made our building projects run smoother. Katrina was with us from the initial drawing of plans to helping us obtain a final occupancy. We often changed our mind over and over again and it was never a bother to change plans as Katrina kept telling us “they are only lines on paper and not a built wall”. The professional fees were extremely fair and we got our money’s worth and more. Her relationships with the local council, engineers and builders are a credit to her and gave us so much confidence in her abilities advocating for us.

Blown away

As a consultant, I’ve seen many of Katrina’s plans over the years, but I finally got to see a finished house. I was blown away by the spaces and angles her design created, things that one doesn’t appreciate from a set of drawings.

Extremely helpful and effective

Katrina took our basic concepts and enhanced them with style and flare to produce a truly innovative design. She was extremely helpful and effective in working with Council on the development application and certification process always keeping us in the loop. We are interstate clients and Katrina worked seamlessly with us from a distance. I would be very happy to recommend her to other clients.
