HOW WE FULFILL OUR CLIENT’S REQUIREMENTS

Work Stages



01

Inception

On acceptance of the Quotation we develop a site plan indicating contours and boundaries from the land survey, building lines and other statutory restrictions. The plan also indicates existing structure and other factors that may impact the design. The client is then provided with a brief including a complete schedule of project programme with an estimated budget.


02

Concept and Viability

A Conceptual Design is generated in this stage. This addresses the intended space provisions, technical functions and characteristics of the plan in an abstract manner. The costs of the anticipated project and programme are also reviewed and discussed.


03

Design and Development

During this work stage the client is provided with a computer-drawn site plan indicating sections and elevations. The plan will be complete, containing overall dimensions, floor levels, room designations and noted floor finishes. We then consult with local and statutory authorities and take into account any estimate from the quantity surveyor (if appointed) before reviewing and updating the budget.
