CONCEPT DESIGN (STAGE 1)
Stage 1 involves sitting down with the team for a relaxed discussion around the details of your building project. We'll then design the floor plan (flow), site development plan & external elevations (‘the look’) of your new home or commercial premises. At this stage 'tweeks' can be made to the design before final sign off by you.
3D VISUALISATION (STAGE 2) - OPTIONAL
This stage involves generating high quality 3 dimensional images and/or actual building walk throughs to enable you to visualise ‘the finished product’. 3D images are extremely powerful as they enable you to gain a clear understanding of every detail of your project, and allow tweeks to be made to the design prior to submitting building consent documentation to council.
BUILDING CONSENT DOCUMENTATION (STAGE 3)
Stage 3 involves the production of the detailed drawings/documentation required by council for building consent approval. These are also used by all tradespeople for pricing purposes, and to guide the building process on site . We pride ourselves on the thorough & accurate detailing of all of our drawings & documentation! This ensures that all tradespeople are clear around every detail of your project, and ultimately leads to a far more enjoyable building experience!
PRICING (STAGE 4) - OPTIONAL
Stage 4 involves the team using the building consent documentation from above to obtain accurate pricing for your project, avoiding any nasty surprises around overall build costs! Alternatively, you can take care of the pricing yourself with guidance from LAD where ever it's required.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT (STAGE 5) - OPTIONAL
This final stage involves the team taking care of all aspects of the build onsite - liaising with council and local authorities, selecting builders & trades people (after close consultation with you!) and making regular visits to site to ensure everything runs smoothly. This ensures that attention is paid to every detail of the design, and that there's no cost over runs!
Once we've met with you to discuss the details of your project & establish the level of engagement you require from above, we'll provide you with a letter of engagement that is unique to your project. This clearly outlines all design costs from go to whoa!
Regardless of the level of engagement you choose from above, the team is always available to offer advice, guidance and answer questions at any stage of the design or building process! architectural designers and architects with an energy efficient focus - covering cambridge, hamilton, te awamutu, morrinsville, matamata, raglan, rotorua & taupo
