About

Green Light Design Group is a multidisciplinary company that provides building design, landscape architecture and consulting arboriculture services in the Sydney, Central Coast and Newcastle regions. We are happy to meet at times that fit into your busy lives.

Our multi-disciplinary team collaborate with builders and certifiers throughout the design and construction process to ensure our ideas are buildable and have all necessary approvals.

Initial discussions with clients allow us to develop a brief that outlines the needs and desires for the project. This then helps guide our decisions. Our understanding of the costs involved in construction will help guide your budgeting and set realistic expectations of what can be achieved.

Ideas are tested through three-dimensional digital modelling of internal and external spaces allowing you to easily visualise the proposed concepts. Once engineering has been completed we include this information in our model to ensure the integrity of the concepts are not compromised by the structural and mechanical requirements.
