The way we represent the architectural stages is a little bit different to the way other firms may describe them, we want each stage to be more easily understood. Our Architectural Service is customised to suit the needs of each individual client and project.
We collaborate and imagine together. We then explore and develop design solutions that meet the Client’s needs, respond to the site and satisfy the regulatory requirements. These solutions are communicated to you using our imagery suite. We listen to your feedback before refining the design solution.
We coordinate and collaborate with the Client and consultants to prepare the necessary drawings and reports for the Development Approval (DA) application. Council will assess the application and in most instances, request additional information. As a team we will respond to Council whilst continuing to communicate to you and the consultant team, to ensure we meet the agreed upon success criteria.
The design is progressed in collaboration with the Client and consultant team to incorporate developed design ideas and authority requirements. After Client sign-off, the design is translated to drawings, schedules and a specification that will allow the project to be costed, building permit issued, and then built.
In consultation with the Client, we will establish the procurement method, coordinate the costing process and prepare contract documents. During construction we will ensure that the intent of the documentation is built. This is achieved through regular site visits, where we will instruct, assess and certify the building work in accordance with the documents.
