About Birdblack Design & our services

Offering the entire Interior Design process. From the initial conceptual designs to the completion of the project, through our design management service.

- also offering Commercial  Design with a focus on commercial enterprises

To make it easy for you we’ve produced a number of set design packages at a fixed cost. This way there are no surprises. You’ll know exactly what design work you’ll be expecting to receive for the set price. Each package lists the amount and detail of work you will receive within that particular package. These may include full sets of drawings, inclusions list, travel to showrooms to select products, labour prices etc. Within the design packages offered you’re bound to find one that suits you, but if you’re looking for something more specialised then we can customise a package to suit your requirements. 

Towards the end of the design process you will have accurate designs drawn up, materials and inclusions prices as well as labour prices. From here you then have the opportunity to bring your designs to life through our comprehensive project management service which includes the following;
•  Allocation of reputable and qualified builder/ trades people
•  Supply of all fittings, fixtures and finishes. 
•  Design Management from conception to completion of the project. 
Quality controlled by BIRDBLACK DESIGN. Design management prices are costed per project. This will be discussed with you at the time of receiving the building and trades quotes.

BIRDBLACK DESIGN takes care of it all. From the beginning until the end, so that you can rest easy knowing that your project is in reputable and qualified hands. We understand the value of having control of a job from start to finish. We've spent countless hours building relationships with our suppliers and tradespeople to ensure that the end result is the best it can possibly be.The exemplary care and level of detail we put into our jobs is the number one feedback we get back from our clients so we know we must be doing something right. 

Birdblack Design is based in the heart of Wollongong, NSW. Our service area includes the whole of the Illawarra and the Southern Highlands. For very special jobs I venture back to my home city Canberra and up to Sydney.
