Our Projects

We have been in business for 30 years. If you live in Brisbane, you’ve probably driven past one of our projects, or stood in it’s foyer. Below is a small sample of some of our recent projects.

Cinema & Apartments


Our town planners lodged the Development Applications for the above use, which involved a multiple dwelling (66 units), theatre (6 cinemas) and a centre use (café), volumetric subdivision and plan sealing. And our Surveyors prepared the Building Format Plan (for strata title) and the challenging Volumetric Subdivision Plan, to separate the body corporate (unit) component from the non-residential uses i.e. the cinema and café uses.

The project had its challenges however pulled together nicely in the end. The units sold quickly, and the cinema is very popular amongst the locals.

We were excited to work on a landmark project in our local area.

Building Set Out Survey

Apartments in Chermside

Our surveyors are regularly involved in set out surveys for building sites. We need to be on the site when required by the builder and their contractors which often involves early (but scenic) start times.

Subdivision (20 Lots)


The Gateway Survey & Planning team of Surveyors & Town Planners formed part of a larger multi-disciplinary team including engineers and environmentalists to lodge a DA for this subdivision which includes 20 residential lots, a new road and a park.
Biggest challenges – stormwater and refuse collection.

Lease Surveys

Various Locations

Our experienced surveyors have completed many lease surveys. This entails the survey of existing buildings and preparation of lease survey plans which are attached to tenancy agreements.>

Subdivision - 13 Lots


We have been appointed to lodge a DA for a subdivision creating 13 residential lots with shared access. There will likely be some challenges relating to tree retention and stormwater discharge.

Subdivision - 8 Lots


Our town planners lodged a DA for a subdivision creating 8 new lots with shared internal access.

Biggest impact on lot configuration – density requirements, road widening, access and refuse collection.

Survey - New Industrial Development


Our surveyors are involved with various surveys pertaining to a new industrial development in Hemmant.

Multiple Dwelling - 14 Units


This was one of the last approvals BCC issued for townhouses in the low density residential (LDR) zoning. BCC has now amended City Plan 2014 to stop the development of multiple dwellings (townhouses) in this zone. Our Clients were pleased with the outcome of the DA and the completed units look fantastic!

Subdivision (2 lots) with associated Character Dwellings

We obtained approval for a development application for a 1 into 2 subdivision which created 2 small lots measuring less than 260m² each. The DA also included 2 proposed character dwellings with minor non-compliances with the dwelling house (small lot) code.
Council raised no issues and the DA was approved without a hitch.

Subdivision - 5 lots


This subdivision which creates 5 lots measuring less than 300m² each was successfully lodged through RiskSmart, which meant faster time frames for the Client.
Although the subject precinct permits lots as small as 180m², the Client opted for larger lots to adequately accommodate future dwellings.
Shared access was required due to bus stop and distance from intersection.
Biggest issue – the location of the bus stop!
