The Team

Treadlite Designs is a family run business. Our commitment is to produce a custom design that you will love with energy efficiency and sustainability solutions tailored to suit you. Whilst the name Treadlite Designs is new the business is not! Brett has been trading as BKD Design Drafting for over 15 years.

Every project at Treadlite Designs starts with a client meeting. We will come and sit down with you and listen to what you want in your home. We take our time at this stage because we are so passionate about everyone having the opportunity to live in a home that they love!

Brett is the principal designer at Treadlite. He completed his Advanced Diploma in Building Design in 2005 at the Gordon in Geelong and has been designing homes for 15 years. He started his working life as an electrician, and outside of work studied many trade building courses which gave him the knowledge to construct several large building projects. This combination of skills and his passion for beautiful design means you won’t find a more committed and experienced building designer for your project. Brett is a registered building practitioner and a member of the Building Designers Association of Victoria (Design Matters. Formerly BDAV).
