Who We Are

Edgefield Projects is a boutique housing, urban design and planning consultancy based in the Perth Hills. Nearly two decades of local and international property experience informs our insights, advice and design solutions. Edgefield Projects designs custom homes and undertakes small subdivisions for individuals and families. For the broader property industry, we provide design expertise on residential structure plans, town centres, local development plans, and infill housing projects.

Keys to Our Success
Lean Business Model – We work from a home studio and employ no full-time staff. This keeps our overheads low, which enables a competitive fee structure, and allows us to focus on projects rather than running an office. We link up with other consultants to deliver larger, more complex projects that require outside expertise or additional resources.

Personal Service – At Edgefield Projects, we manage our client load carefully to ensure that we have time to give them our full attention. Because we really understand the needs of our clients, we can provide them with personalised and highly tailored advice. This relationship-based approach leads to a more satisfying experience for everyone.

Senior Expertise – At larger firms, many clients get disappointed when their project is delegated to junior staff. At Edgefield Projects, clients have direct interaction with the Principal throughout the project. This ensures that each project gets the highest level of service, which gives them the best chance of achieving a successful outcome.

Highly Responsive – Our clients often need quick turnaround concepts or yield studies to inform the feasibility analysis prior to making an offer on a site. We are used to working to tight timelines, and can be flexible with working hours to meet a project deadline. If additional resources are required, we can source staff at short notice through our network of sub-contractors.
