We provide professional design, documentation and project direction for individual, corporate and government clients on single residences, multi-residential, commercial, public, urban and landscape architecture projects. We collaborate, direct and coordinate sub consultant teams across structural, mechanical, hydraulic, electrical, environmental and other specialist disciplines. We can provide design services for any location.
Architectural services are sequenced through progressive stages:
Client briefing; site and programme analysis; preliminary review of development regulations; indicative project costs; site survey and geotechnical investigations as required.
Design studies leading to a generative architectural concept presented in sketch drawings and scale models. Several options may be explored.
Development and resolution of the sketch design according to technical and regulatory considerations and specialist consultant input, culminating in the submission of a development application to the relevant approval agency.
Drawings and specifications for construction, precisely documenting the structure, materials, finishes and fittings, forming a legal document for the construction contract.
Selected builders tender competitively. We act as your agent and conduct regular inspections, give instructions, identify defects and variations, and certify construction progress and completion.
Design and Construct
Partnering with preferred builders, we offer design and construct packages for residential, commercial and industrial projects. This can reduce the project time frame and deliver cost savings through documentation and administration efficiencies.
We direct developments from inception to completion including fast track project delivery via trade packaged construction management. This can accelerate the commencement and completion of construction and provide adaptive cost management.
Our expertise in urban design and landscape architecture realises leading edge theory and practice for public space and placemaking, sustainability, landscape urbanism, mixed use and urban infill projects. We also undertake master planning for town and regional development, subdivision, estates and environmental resource management.
A lump-sum fee will be determined by the project scope, complexity and cost of work. Total fees for full architectural services typically range between 5-20% of the cost of works. Hourly rates usually apply to atypical and reduced services. Fees for design and construct, master planning and other developments are tailored to each project.
