DBD Design Build Develop was founded by our managing director Shivin Bhatia with the aim to bring a change to the journey of designing & building residential homes in Western Australia. With over 10 years of design & construction experience, he set about to create a brand that explores innovative, sustainable and efficient building methods that are second to none.
With a flair for design he believes in designing buildings that work with the environment exceptionally and more importantly contribute by feeding energy & resources back to the grid. Whilst some projects may vary in size, scale, and geographic conditions, this thorough understanding of architectural building science has been the key driver in all his past & present projects.
Alongside his passion for design, he is also committed to the client by providing a range of services which makes the process so much easier for the client. From finding the right block to designing the vision he aims to provide solutions & advice specific to the client & brief and tailored to the site/budget. The keyword here being Budget whereby he listens to the client's requirements in full depth before guiding them along the way to make decisions that are pragmatic, thoughtful, site-specific & within their budget.
The process is streamlined & clear from the first meeting onwards and no matter the scale of the project. he is always willing to help. With no hidden costs policy & no variations policy, he has built this brand with a strong reputation and large referral base of clients who vouch for his work and trust the process.
