After being in our new house for 3 months we would like to thank you for making our dream home possible. We remember the first meeting we had and how easy it was to discuss the pros and cons of what we wanted in our design and budget. Having a builders advice and experience on the job constructing our thoughts into plans, gave us confidence and produced the unique design we live in today.
Every person who participated in the processes of building our home, from the Builder, the Engineer even the Certifier made comment on how much detail went into the plans making their job easier which I believe not only saved us money, but also limited the chance of blowing our budget due to no stone being left unturned. This also limited any chance of any mistakes during construction.
LIVING THE DREAM
DARRYN,LEANNE & JAYLA KELLY
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for the truly professional plans you recently designed for me. Apart from the fact they passed both developer and council certifier criteria on first application, I was impressed with the efficiency and turn around times of your service.
I’ve had plans designed by architects, building designers and draftsmen before and have never had such a smooth experience. Paul, I attribute this to your superior knowledge from years of practical building experience.
The practical ideas you incorporated enabled me to achieve and exceed my original vision cost effectively and without sacrificing the integrity of the design. In terms of the final building cost, this has resulted in approximately a 12% saving compared to the original design brief.
I also really appreciated your fairness with your time, it was obvious to me that you love what you do, right down to the detail of the presentation folder for the plans you provided.
Having come to the Sunshine Coast from NSW and not knowing anybody locally, I felt that you made the process very easy for me.
I can’t wait until I have another project for you to design for me!
onplan supported Youngcare with its holiday accommodation planning by providing its drafting services. Not only did they understand the constraints faced by young people with disabilities they aligned themselves with the cause and worked overtime to assist Youngcare in completing professional documentation. They were available outside of hours to assist and nothing was too much trouble. We cannot wait to use them again.
We have known Paul for many years and my husband Tony, has worked as a contractor on past constructions. We both know Paul as a fastidious builder, who is honest and hard working. When we heard that he was expanding into building design, we both thought that this would be Paul’s niche, due to his superior work standards and building knowledge.
When we decided to build our new family home, we knew that Paul would be our designer of choice. Nothing was too much trouble, with the obligatory minor alterations to initial plans, to promptly arriving at the final design. The presentation, quality and quantity of the final material was far superior to any we have seen before. Due to Paul’s practical knowledge, he was able to design the house to match our intended exterior building materials, Hebel concrete panels, without any unnecessary cutting of the panels, therefore reducing any wastage of material and costs.
Although I can’t confirm this, I believe that due to the comprehensiveness of “onplan’s” diagrams that we submitted to council, we received an approval in days, not weeks or months, unlike a lot of other complaints of building approval times.
Obviously, we highly recommend Paul and his team at onplan, if you require a professional product.

We engaged Onplan on the recommendation of a neighbour who had previously used their services. In the course of the pre design process we spoke to a number of architects and designers but settled on Onplan due primarily due to Paul’s preparedness to listen to what we wanted and the practical advice/suggestions that clearly stemmed from his experience as a builder.
We found the design process alot more straight forward than we had envisaged. It was very much a collaborative effort and one which was completed in the timeframe we were provided at the start of the process. In addition we were very appreciative of Paul going out of his way to assist us in areas which fell outside the design brief.
We would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
John Cunningham & Anita Owens
We have worked closely with Paul and Ian from Onplan on a number of projects on the Sunshine Coast. These have ranged from water front Pelican Waters homes to renovations and extensions.
Each project presents its own set of unique problems, Paul and Ian using their own experience can work toward solutions that meet the customers expectations.
They have a good balance between flair of design and practicality.
I am confident that when I send a client to Onplan for their design to be completed, Paul and Ian will listen to them and work with them through the design stages.
We know that completed plans will be of high quality. This will make the project flow better from start to finish.
Good Living Constructions
Over the past two years Onplan have completed several projects for our company such as unit developments, extensions and renovations.The project build value has been within the range of $50K to $800K.
Both Paul and Ian from Onplan are easy to communicate with, and liase well with the client. Having a building background offers not only experience and knowledge but an added advantage of creating a practical and ergonomic outcome to any project.
Onplan has a prompt and professional service, from preliminary drawings to the finer details whilst under construction. There concepts are cutting edge and extremely detailed for the builder right through to the first home buyer.
I look forward to working with Onplan on future up coming projects.
Keep up the good work guys.
“we always like to work with ONPLAN.
Not only show the drawings that a real professional is at work, but also the very attention to detail clarifies matters at early stages, which saves much time and costs during the design and coordination period.”
