West Coast Building Design is owned and operated by Malcolm Hunter. He has a long history in the building industry. The customer is the most important person in his business.
Malcolm can help you to get what you want. He previously held Builders Licence RL44393 and was a Registered Building Work Supervisor. Through the HIA he completed the AS1684 Timber Framing Code and has a National Estimating Certificate. He completed studies and became qualified to specify every structural member in residential brick veneer construction. Qualified Engineer’s are engaged to complete the design certification as required.
Way back in 1997 Malcolm was working as a ‘Design & Sales Consultant’ for a Volume/Project Builder. Seeing mistakes in the industry, he found it necessary for both his, and for his clients sake, to upgrade from the Builder’s CAD system. Malcolm invested in the world’s most advanced Building Information Model (BIM) Computer Aided Design (CAD) system called ARCHICAD .
Experience & Benefits
His building experience and structural knowledge plus the world’s best architectural 3D CAD system allows him to improve and expand his client’s design choices. Able to give them a millimeter perfect ‘Virtual Building Model’ with global 3D visualization of their proposed home or addition. This allows them to see and develop their ideas and to get it right for themselves. To get exactly what they want built. They are able to make confident contract decisions. No mistakes. No surprises. No unexpected costs.
Over the years Malcolm has worked with many different Builder’s with a wide range of capabilities. Some are good for a simple build, while others are needed to meet the challenges and difficulties of some unique sites and designs.
Whether it’s a simple, or a complex build – the right builder with the best price should win the job. That’s a WIN-WIN.
I have design experience in both Residential and Commercial. This includes completing the design & build of a Medical Centre within a regional Hospital complex. I’ve done major Heritage Listed Hotel additions and renovations. I’ve signed hundreds of building contracts with different builders and monitored those contracts being built. I can help you to analyse the best value builder for your project. The builder who can complete your job, as specified, at the best price!
In 2005 I started my own Building Design business so that I could concentrate solely on my client’s needs and not on the limitation of any single Builder.
My aim is to produce the best building experience and result for my client. I am committed to giving outstanding service that is designed to exceed expectations. To deliver solutions and services of the highest quality and standard for each of my clients.
The West Coast Building Design process allows you to see your ideas and to ‘consider all factors’. You can see your ideas not only in the plans, but also in the full colour building model and colour renderings (printed views). As it develops you are able to make informed decisions about your ‘alternatives, possibilities and choices’.
Together we explore and work through your ideas and priorities with budget in mind. We make all the necessary amendments and changes to get your design just right for you, for your site, for your budget and for your Council. I provide you with exacting documentation which can not be mistaken and which locks into contract the structure to be built at the price agreed upon. No mistakes, No surprises, No unexpected costs.
Ensuring compliance with Australian Standards and all Contractual & Regulatory requirements. Ensuring the requirements of the relevant Drawings & Specifications are met.

Value and Savings
Your project can start with a concept designfor minimal cost (using and exploring your ideas). If you like what you see, and if it fits your budget and you want to build it, we can keep going right through to a Planning Application and Working Drawings for you.
The design belongs to you and it can be used to tender to any number of builders. You will find out and know which builder is the best value for your project. This can save you a very substantial amount of money and give you the peace of mind to build.
I coordinate industry specialists like surveyors and engineers to provide the necessary information and documentation for your project.
Our cities, towns and suburbs are becoming more complex. The need to accommodate greater diversity in land use, housing types and transport modes requires a more sophisticated approach and increased focus on good design.
