City of Sydney Development Application Models (DA / Stage 1 DA / OC / S4.55)

Kinkfab is experienced in producing models for City of Sydney and can guide you through the process of preparing the physical model submission for your DA.

We produce these models for all sized developments and have also been engaged to produced models directly for City of Sydney Council for repairs/improvements to their City Model at Town Hall as well as producing models for their own projects. A selection of our work can be viewed in the gallery above or you can email us to see images of similar sized projects/locations to your development application.

Our models are built according to the strict City of Sydney Council DA model requirements and are required when the development exceeds $5 million or is over 3 storeys:

  • Solid white and detailed 1:500 model of design proposal including all fenestration (Stage 1 DA models require envelope massing only)

  • Context models may be required for some sites outside of the immediate CBD (context of 100 metres for buildings up to 10 storeys, 200 metres for buildings over 10 storeys)

Further details can be found on City of Sydney’s website or by contacting the CoS modelling team at
