THE PROCCESS


Brief

Our initial consultation begins establishing the key criteria for a successful project, that is:

  • Site context
  • Spatial design brief
  • Time and budget
  • Sustainability opportunities and objectives
  • Clients thoughts on aesthetic considerations

We then seek the client to advise on the level of service required which can vary. This can also evolve as the project develops based on the nature of the project, availability of the client, and the structure and involvement of the consultants and builders.

Fees are generally fixed, but can be structured partially at an hourly rate depending on circumstances.


Concept

Early conceptualizing in projects, whether large or small, usually begin with testing and validating different options in a collaborative team environment. These opportunities are then conveyed to the client and our recommendations are given on direction.

Once options are narrowed down, concepts are conceived using the latest 3d design visualization software to inspire, inform and analyze the potential design. This occurs concurrently with ongoing revisiting of buildability and budget.


Documentation

Our preference is generally to fully document a project, having input into all aspects of construction, selections and specifications. This assists in planning ahead for a smooth building process and delivers the best chance for the greatest level of quality. But again, service requirements can vary and we are happy to consider partial services for work up to Concept Design, Planning Application, or Building Permit Stage.

We have a network of consultants that are well regarded in the industry, in which we have solid working relationships with. These include, Land Surveyors, Quantity Surveyors, Building Surveyors, Structural Engineers, Services Engineers, Traffic Engineers and Landscape Designers.


Contact Administration & Project Management

Holding tenders is only a portion of the tender process. Finding the right fit with client, project type, contract and builder is essential. We have a network of builders that are willing to consider a wide range of project types and sizes.

During the construction phase, in addition to site attendance and answering builders’ queries, we can assist in dealing with Progress Claims, quality reviews, Defect Inspections and budget management.
