Shelly Dival is the driving force behind Front Door Building Design. With over 20 years in the industry Shelly is supported by a team of designers, senior draftspersons and allied consultants so that all of the requirements of your project from Architectural, to structural design and energy and Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) can be coordinated and managed from the design office, ensuring a comprehensive set of drawings and documents for council requirements and construction
whether for your home or business, we know that it can be difficult to find someone who understands your vision, and can turn that into reality.
We are here to help.
We did not want a normal run of the mill home, after meeting and speaking with Shelly I knew that she would do her utmost to provide us with the home that we wanted and that we could afford.
The best features of our home are the open plan kitchen, dining and living area with the double sided fireplace. We also love the alfresco area with its own kitchen and entertaining area.
We have been guided by the team at Front Door throughout the whole process which has helped greatly as we have not built before and very much needed guidance and assistance. I would definitely recommend Front Door Building Design to anyone considering designing their own home. They can explain things in layman’s terms for those like us that know nothing of the building industry, whilst also being very professional at all times.
I have worked on various projects with Shelly and her team. The projects have included a commercial, high-end residential through to simple house extensions.
Shelly and her team have excelled in each area, creating building designs that are energy efficient, contemporary, easy to construct and beautiful.
Front Door Building Design complete their designs and documentation in a very methodical method, which cuts down on the time to complete, keeps her sub-consultants happy, which results in savings to her clients.
I regularly recommend Shelly and Front Door Building Design to my clients that come to me before finding a building designer.Chris Dorian
