The Business
Tectonics Building Design is a partnership located in Margaret River. The Partners, Peter Lea and Warren Hillman commenced business in September 2006 primarily as a Building Design and Documentation service including various forms of Project Management, Inspection, and advisory roles. Both partners commenced as Draftsmen and are Registered Builders with a combined Industry experience of over 40 years in quite a varying range of Construction methods and Design practices.
The decision to include a complete 'Design and Construct' service was made in late 2009 following requests from several clients who did not wish to become involved in a Tender process yet wished to gain an accurate Contract price before completing the full documentation process.
Tectonics now provides a Design & Documentation service for Builders or individual clients or a complete Design & Construct service.

The Designs
Commencing with a Site inspection followed by preparation of a Design Brief. The design is formed taking into account Site aspect, soil types, terrain, local weather patterns, neighbouring influences, specific client requests, views, and of course, budget. Solar passive and energy efficiency principles are considered throughout. We believe we can create a carefully zoned, highly functional and comfortable energy efficient building without the need for excessive architectural detail or expense. Our Construction experience allows us to minimize wastage during construction by keeping to standard material sizes and limitations wherever possible during the Design stage.
Selection of materials is often influenced by the Site and will be determined during the preliminary design stages. Our experience in general materials includes but is not limited to Brick, Timber and Steel Framed, Rammed Earth, Tilt Slab, Straw Bale and Modular Panel.
