Ecotect Architects have wide ranging experience in the
development of subdivision development plans. Our personal
experience in the design of high quality residential,
commercial and mixed-use spaces with a strong focus on energy
and water efficiency has been a key ingredient in the design of
several successful and desirable residential subdivisions.
The first step is to make sure that the road layouts and
orientation opens up the opportunity for maximized passive solar
design in a subdivision. This means our practice must be involved
before the planners and engineers start detailed work on the
concept. The initial concept layout should be prepared from the
survey drawing prior to the first project meeting.
From thereon prudent coordination of the consultants is the
secret to success. Once the layout is decided and the block sizes
and shape settled to the satisfaction of the practice, the
structure plan can proceed to subdivision approval.
The ecological approach not only looks at the solar design
aspects but the preservation or damage minimization of the natural
ecology of the area, water management, including harvesting of rain
water and recycling grey water to assist the irrigation of the
public open landscaped spaces and street landscape.

Every project is different and incurs different fees. The
practice will work on a time charge basis at the advisory or early
concept stage and then be able to quote a fixed sum once the scope
of work is ascertained.
The cost is negligible compared to the civil works needed to
develop most land subdivisions. With sustainability being the
guiding principles in more comprehensive manner, expertise by
Ecotect-Architect is a sound investment in any land subdivision
