I met with Laurie Rigoni from Terrain Consulting Group for an informal meeting to seek advice about a property I co-own, and its potential for sub division. Having no knowledge of such matters, Laurie’s warm, friendly manner, breadth of knowledge and professional approach was comforting and appreciated. I was promptly shown satellite images of my property complete with accurate measurements. He explained what my options were and what was realistically achievable through his strong knowledge of local council and building regulations. The information has been invaluable. I would not hesitate in recommending Laurie to anyone who is interested in developing a property and is unsure about what can be achieved and how to go about it.
I have been going down the path of exploring a dual occupancy development project for my property in Strathmore for the past 12 month.
After spending much more time than I would have imagined I almost had to abandon a project with a volume so called turnkey builder. This builder had the pricing come in way above what was first discussed, and after much disappointment I contacted Laurie.
Laurie’s knowledge and down to earth approach was exactly what I was looking for. Laurie also referred me to an Architectural practice who have the dual occupancy experience I so desperately need.
I am feeling a lot more confident about the project after speaking with Laurie and the architecture group and I look forward to engaging Laurie’s services for this and future projects.
After only two meetings, I am well on the way to getting fresh architectural plans drawn up and I look forward to having these plans to council within 6-7 weeks.
I am so grateful that I will now see real progress very soon.
Many thanks again.
As spoke this morning, I really appreciated your guidance and help during the VCAT hearing process from the beginning to the decision. If I have to go through it again I will consider no one but you without any hesitation. Your knowledge on these matters, your calm and professional attitude, the ease you communicate and establish rapport with people were very confidence building.
What I appreciated even more is that you were only concerned with providing the best advice and service and never attempted to lead us into unnecessary complications or expenses like some other town planners. On top of that, well after the successful VCAT decision you were only to happy in providing further assistance and answering to our questions.
I once again recommend to anyone who is planning to go through a development to talk with Lorenzo and his team as early as possible. Get them on board from initial surveying to architectural plans development, to council approvals, and VCAT hearings, and further. They will save you time and money and prevent a lot of mistakes on the way.
Thank you Lorenzo for your kind help. All the best wishes.
Hi Lorenzo & Peter,
On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you both for your professional conduct and the hard work you have put in for us to get the sub division. It’s been a long and stressful journey and we could not have asked for two better people to have onboard. Again, a big thank you and greatly appreciated.
I often have the need for fast, accurate town planning advice for my clients. For many years, I have been relying on the professional services of Lorenzo Rigoni and the team at Terrain Consulting. It is my job to advise my clients to what they can do to extract the best yield from their property or from properties they are looking to purchase. The first place I head is to the team at Terrain.
I find their response time is impressive, considering the level of research required and the rich content provided. Lorenzo’s extensive experience coupled with his innate attention to detail creates the perfect combination. I also believe having a surveying team as part of the offering adds another level of service that other companies do not provide.
I have used Terrain Consulting for both personal and professional matters and would not only have no hesitation in recommending them but would go one step further and strongly urge you use them in every instance. The advice I have received has saved both myself and my clients time, money and in some instances, it has uncovered fatal flaws with some property development options.
If you are looking for fast, accurate advice from one of Melbourne’s most experienced Town Planners, I suggest you to contact Lorenzo Rigoni and the team at Terrain Consulting.
Dear Thomas and Lorenzo,
Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication to my case. I felt support and encouraged every step of the way.
