When it comes to developing Home Units and Town Houses in Brisbane and neighbouring Local Government Area’s we have a proven track record over many successfully completed Townhouse and Home Unit projects that you can draw confidence from.
we are experienced in handling the 'whole process' - not just a part of it.
dealing with a variety of consultants & contractors can, and often does, lead to costly mistakes
There are a lot of facets to property development – we’ll take care of delivering the finished project while you take care of other things such as financing, marketing, sales, contracts and acquiring your next site.
We can step in right from the word go – as soon as you identify a development site – we will run the rule over it before you commit to it. We’ll ascertain if the site is suitable for what you wish to do and what specific issues, opportunities or problems the site has.
After that we will work in with you to achieve the optimal yield for your site. Should you ‘max it out’ or perhaps a ‘less is more’approach is more profitable? Can we get a Code DA or will it be worthwhile or necessary to seek Impact Assessment? Is RiskSmart a viable option? What about Seal Smart? These are all questions that may be running through your head that we can help provide answers for, specific to your project. Allow us to put our knowledge skill and experience to work for you.
Our expertise lies in taking a project from initial concepts, getting it through Council Approvals and delivering a quality fully finished product with separate titles. Yes, that’s right, we also organise your new titles and the Body Corporate too!
We know that there are many pieces to the puzzle that you, as a property developer, need to tie up. As experienced Property Development Project Managers you can rely on us to get your project designed, approved, built and new titles issued.
A well organised and properly planned project is much less likely to go off the rails.
Costs can be controlled when planned for
You may be concerned or have read articles or heard stories about “Hidden Costs” & “Property Development Pitfalls” – these costs are not hidden at all – it’s more to do with a lack of knowledge – so we’ve put together a report that explains the various cost centre’s that an aspiring Property Developer can expect to encounter.
Clayfield Multi Unit Project Rescued
"The job went smoothly enough and was almost complete when the builder went bust. Ownership of the company, a business that had traded successfully for many years, had changed hands during the currency of my job. Not to worry – SCM took charge and competently finalised things satisfactorily with little inconvenience to myself. The savings SCM generated for me covered the cost of their services many times over and I would happily use them again. My only regret is not bringing them on board earlier. Rob Swinton - Adamson St.
Jacon Parry and his team of professionals at SCM Projects Brisbane were outstanding in helping me transform my vision into a reality. They listened to what I was trying to achieve and would then provide me with a variety of solutions. The builder they chose also did a superb job.

Here are some common questions about developing home units & townhouses
That depends on a variety of factors such as size of site and its dimensions, zoning, car parking & recreational requirements, allowable G.F.A. (gross floor area), your choice of unit type e.g. 1 brm. Vs 3 brm. etc. Councils rarely prescribe a site's yield, but rather perhaps density and other things such as number of car parks required, size of balconies or courtyards. It then becomes a design exercise taking into account building Code to work out your yield.
There are several steps along the way that require approval from Council. The first of these is Development Approval, often referred to as a "D.A." The time taken to get this can vary depending on such things as the quality of your application, whether it is code compliant / assessable or impact assessable & any submissions [objections] received. Obtaining the DA is only the start however and we're happy to discuss your project in more detail given the opportunity to do so
That question is akin to asking how much it costs to buy a car or how long is a piece of string. There are many cost centres in a home unit or townhouse development. Some of these are the site itself such as its topography, its' location in respect to services or ease of access to name just a few. Other factors could include the height of the building or the standard of finishes and inclusions. We're happy to provide further guidance once we are more familiar with your site and your proposal.
