Cameron Sims has joined Gemmill Projects as Projects Manager and brings with him over 15 years experience in the industry. Cameron is also a registered builder and has very hands on approach. Now is definitely a great time to develop with the current financial markets starting to make an upward turn, Cameron says. With slight increases in value of land, homeowners are looking to either subdivide their large blocks or use the equity in their current house to create potential wealth and create a stream of income for the future.

After making the decision to subdivide or purchase, a lot of questions arise. How many units can be accommodated on the land, can it be a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom, how long will the process take and the big one, what will the cost be? These are all questions that experts George Tsoulis and Damon Stroud can answer. George and Damon head up Gemmill Projects and have over 30 years of combined experience in unit developments.

George says that getting good advice from the very start is imperative for anyone who is thinking of subdividing. Quite often people start developing a property before they are fully advised of all the applicable costs and it is much better to obtain a full feasibility study up front. Clients come to George and Damon with plenty of questions about unit development but it is fairly easy to get started. Damon advises that a simple informal meeting to ascertain block size, council zoning and requirements are enough to get the ball rolling. Clients are then advised of how many units the block can accommodate, various costs including construction, finishing, subdivision and site works. After this initial meeting George and Damon will put together a written feasibility study and provide that documentation to the client within 24 hours.

There is no set timeframe when it comes to developing a block as every Council varies. There are 32 local government authorities in WA. Each local authority is bound by the R-codes in the Metropolitan Planning Scheme which dictate what can and cannot be done in multi-residential developments Gemmill Projects specialises in multi-residential property development, from additional houses to duplexes, triplexes, quadruplexes and multi-unit developments.
