BUILDING A DUPLEX
WHAT IS A DUPLEX?
Duplexes are one of the more popular development opportunities in Perth, allowing you to build two homes on one block of land, separated by a common central wall.
BUILD TO SUIT THE LAND
Depending on the size and shape of your plot, a duplex can be two side by side buildings or one house behind another – the latter is also known as a battle-axe design.
ONE OR TWO BLOCKS
Sometimes a duplex building exists on one land title and must therefore be sold together, other times they are held on two separate land titles and can be sold separately. In Perth, a duplex development can only be built on land of a certain size, which is dependent on the property zoning for your area.
Every block of land is different and all councils have different rules regarding subdivisions, so the best solution is to call us at Thompson Sustainable Homes WA and we can accurately assess what can be built on your development site.
HAVE YOU GOT A NEW DEVELOPMENT THAT NEEDS INNOVATIVE DESIGN? TALK TO US!
DEVELOPMENT SUCCESS DOES NOT COME EASY. The DEVIL IS IN THE DETAIL.
If you believe that a duplex development is appropriate for your block, we will consult with the local council and planning consultants on your behalf. We will determine the current zoning policies and future changes to these policies so that you can make an informed decision.
We take into consideration the environmental effects on homes at the design stage, which over time can dramatically deliver significant savings, given the cost associated with the energy consumption for heating and cooling. By combining these tailored design characteristics with energy efficient products and construction materials, this makes our homes the economically, socially and environmentally friendly choice.

Whatever the challenges of your land, we will work with our surveyors and engineers to create a plan that will maximise your investment.
