Design of public and residential buildings

Take a moment to explore the process we follow to gain a deeper understanding of our work.

1. First Stage - Preliminary Studies and Design brief:

   1.1 Feasibility Study:
   Preliminary studies encompass a range of assessments, from defining construction intentions to evaluating site suitability and conducting diverse engineering studies. These include geodetic surveys, technology assessments for optimal construction methods, and the development of technical and economic justifications, considering both economic and social aspects of feasibility.

   1.2 Volumetric Study:

   The volumetric study determines the location, legal admissibility, and feasibility of the investment intention, outlining future construction sites in alignment with regulatory plans. It provides a comprehensive solution, including floor plans, facades, and engineering networks, with accompanying necessary drawings and additional materials, explained in an explanatory note. The study can be tailored through negotiation for preparation in different variants.

   1.3 Design brief:

   The design brief considers initial data and documents required for project development, covering terrain and geological features, technical infrastructure connections, cultural heritage considerations, and ownership details. It further specifies site requirements, design phases, and project components, ensuring compliance with regulatory standards and fostering creative synthesis.

   The initial stages are crucial for steering the project in the right direction, aligning stakeholders, mitigating risks, and establishing a robust foundation for subsequent design and construction phases. This early investment in planning significantly influences project success and stakeholder satisfaction.

   *Check the risks of underestimating the initial stages of the design process.*

2. Second Stage - Conceptual Project:

   Involving the development of a project based on current urban planning regulations, the conceptual project facilitates coordination with authorities, permits, and public construction procurement. Depending on the site's scale, it can consist of various components (architectural, structural, technological, or infrastructure) and may be developed in variants. An architectural piece includes drawings, renderings, an explanatory note, and aggregated calculations to clearly depict the building's appearance.

3. Third Stage - Technical/Working Project:

   The technical design, based on the agreed conceptual design or current regulations, serves as a basis for the working design or obtaining construction permits, detailing and supplementing design solutions. Depending on the site type, the technical design covers different aspects, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and facilitating construction to completion.

   It contains drawings for construction-situation, plans, sections, elevations, and etc. on an appropriate scale. An explanatory note explains proposed design solutions, including issued documents and source data, along with calculations justifying design decisions. The working project clarifies specific design solutions, enabling the complete implementation of all SMR types and the delivery and installation of technological equipment and site furniture.

4. Project Management:

   Project management in architecture involves planning, coordinating, and supervising tasks and activities crucial for successful construction project completion. This encompasses managing resources, schedules, budgets, and communication to ensure on-time project delivery, adherence to scope, and client satisfaction.
