BUILDING DESIGN GUIDELINE
Building your new home is a very exciting and pleasurable experience. This is even more the case when
you can do it at such a unique location as Admiral Island and Pelican Bay.
To preserve the beauty of our estate, the Home Owners Association has compiled a set of Architectural
Design Guidelines. These guidelines are not meant to restrict you, but are there to make sure that the
general maritime character of the development is maintained. Please download the guidelines from our
download page and stroll through them. You will see that within the general framework you will have
unlimited possibilities to design your new home.
As can be seen from the guidelines, we do not force you to use an architect as is common on many other
estates. We do however make use of the services of two architects to adjudicate submitted plans.
THESE ARCHITECTS ARE:
Rennie Scurr Adendorf

After you have designed your home the next phase will be to appoint a builder to realise the physical construction. The Home Owners Association
will unfortunately not be able to help you here. There are no preferred builders on Admiral Island and Pelican Bay. All we can do is to advise you to
make sure that you contract a reputable builder and to obtain references before you appoint one.
The Home Owners Association has also instituted a “Builders Regulation Contract” to make sure that building operations do not interfere with the
security and quality of life of other residents on the estate. There will be building activity for quite some time to come and we want to make the
disturbance as minimal as possible. This Building Regulation Contract can be downloaded from the Downloads page.
In order to give you an idea of the procedure to follow we have compiled a “Building Procedure Description” that can also be downloaded from the
All that is left for us here is to wish you a pleasurable design and building experience. We cannot wait to see you start with your new home and start
enjoying your company!!
