“Our reputation is built on understanding and delivering what our customers want, and when they want it.”

Karl and Pam Strazdins established KAS Design Build in 1985, bringing together their skills in building, property development and interior design, with the vision of delivering bespoke designs with quality construction solutions for individuals, couples and families, business owners and operators.

Today, Kurt Strazdins and the KAS family continue this family business philosophy. By taking the time to understand every clients’ individual needs and wants, we can provide a truly unique result while making the experience an enjoyable one.

KAS provides an integrated service, offering truly in house architectural design and construction management as well as cabinet making and interior design from under one roof. We engage the highest quality tradespeople and contractors for your build and landscaping. By following the journey of your build from our first meeting, until you move in, we have the capacity to ensure that your experience is not only stress free, but that the completed project effortlessly accommodates your lifestyle and needs and accomplishes what you set out to achieve.

As a family owned and operated business, we understand the importance and value of getting it right – working together to create a space that embraces your individual tastes and lifestyle, a place that sits comfortably within the landscape and a property that is built to last, with long-term appreciation potential as an added bonus.

Design

At the initial meeting we will work through a design brief together with a member of our Architectural Design team who will be with you from start to finish. We seek to identify what your daily life is like, how you like to live in your house and what elements are important to you in your home. Our experienced team can provide you with guidance and advice to come up with a design brief that carefully incorporates your lifestyle and needs. From here, we will develop custom schematic design options, including feedback obtained from council. We invite you to be involved in this process, encouraging you to refine the design so that it reflects your personality, style and way of living. A final concept drawing will be presented to you for approval; from this we can prepare planning drawings along with a turnkey cost estimate, before being submitted to council.

Approval

While awaiting Planning Consent from council, we will prepare the build contract and specifications for your sign off. The construction drawings are then developed to accurately correspond with the bespoke design of your new home. At this time, you will make the design selections that will ultimately determine the look and feel of the space; we will work closely with you throughout this process to ensure that we are creating a uniquely personal home, injected with your character and style. The construction drawings will then be lodged for Building Rules Consent with a private building certifier, and the final construction documentation will be completed.

Construction

The construction of your home will be overseen by one of our in-house Project Managers, who will work with the Designer to ensure that the build is carried out exactly in accordance with the agreed design and construction drawings. We appoint only the very best tradespeople and contractors, who are detail oriented and committed to delivering quality workmanship. At various stages throughout the build, we welcome you to meet with us onsite to confirm the locations of electrical and plumbing, fixtures, tiling, cabinetry and landscaping.
