Local knowledge & expertise across the entire subdivision process

We design and manage Brisbane subdivision projects all the way from plan conception to registration of titles. Using a team of associated consultants, all aspects of your development are planned and organised. We have reconfigured many residential South East Queensland properties, including large rural developments and multiple unit and town house developments. We have provided surveying services for marina developments, shopping center developments, re-alignment of boundaries or boundary truncation surveys, easement surveys and numerous smaller scale subdivisions such as 1 into 2 or 3 lot subdivisions.

We can assist with all types of subdivision

  • Splitting one lot into two or more seperate lots
  • Changing the boundaries of a lot
  • Subdividing building or units with a community title scheme
  • Volumetric Subdivision - above or below your land
  • Leases for subdivisions - e.g over 10 years

Large development subdivision specialists

Most recently we have become involved in several larger developments including a small lot multi-staged development with land dedication to Council for the purposes of Park and drainage land and includes a Community Title Scheme. These more complex schemes can involve multi-layered Schemes and require guidance from various professionals however allow for lot design usually associated with a town house development.

Reconfiguration surveying & plan lodgement

In order to finalise a subdivision approval, a Survey Plan needs to be sealed by the Local Council and then registered with the Department of Environment and Resource Management. Our office is able to complete the surveying works, prepare a Survey Plan and lodge the required documentation with both Council and the DERM.

Building format plans & title registration

Our office provides a wide range of professional services relating to all aspects of community title subdivisions. These typically include townhouse, unit and duplex developments requiring land surveying works for Building Format Plans and title registration.

We will work with you to ensure that all changes are made in accordance with local council laws, and we will liaise directly with the councils on your behalf for this. We are very familiar with the requirements from all South East Queensland councils including Brisbane City, Logan Council, Redcliffe, Ipswich, Pine Rivers & Gold Coast.

Managing your application with council

From our consultations with you, we will be able to manage your subdivision application to council throughout the whole process.
