We offer the full architectural service beginning with concept design through to contract administration and observation of your construction project. We work closely with our clients to identify their needs and to provide them with an architectural solution that is in line with our social, environmental and economic values.
We want to improve the current standard of housing. With this approach, we design using energy-efficient principals and use the latest technology to ensure our homes reach a level of performance that meets the needs of a sustainable lifestyle.
After an initial site visit & client meeting, we prepare an NZIA Architects Agreement for Services, develop the project brief and model any existing buildings (if applicable).
The clients concept design is developed in finer detail. During this stage we engage any sub-consultants that may be required.
We prepare all the documentation required for Building Consent and discuss pricing and potential Contractors for the project.
Procurement & Pricing
We help guide the client through pricing options and Contractor communications.
We typically prepare 1-2 concept proposals, including Site Plan, Floor Plan, 3D views, and a 3D walk-through model to discuss with the client to develop the design.
The drawings are developed with consideration of structural elements, bracing, buildability of construction elements, and material selections.
The Building Consent application is complied and lodged with the relevant Council on the clients behalf.
Contract Administration & Observation
For Construction documents are issued to the Contractor and we undertake administration of the Construction Contract. We monitor time and costs, as well as assessing project completion.
