What to expect from Studio Acht Caribbean Architects in a project?
To make it easy for our customers, we have learned and classified these 5 stages
We can bring designs to life using software to produce presentation drawings, rendered perspectives and animations. Rendered perspectives will give you a better understanding of how your project contextually fits in.
Our architectural services include design concepts through to completion, making the whole process of building a new house or building, or simply renovating it, a whole lot easier.
From traditional design through to contemporary style, our experienced designers are able to guide you through the conceptual stages of the design process.
Initially we will discuss your project. We will require a written description of your requirements. Careful consideration is given to many factors during this process including aesthetics, budget, site specific attributes, sustainability, energy efficiency, spacial requirements, construction materials and building code requirements.
We present our concepts in a number of different formats from freehand sketches through to fully rendered perspectives depending on what your requirements for the project are.
Following your acceptance of our services, the first stage is to have a detailed meeting, where we will lead you through your specifics for the project.
It is helpful if you complete some research on the style of architecture that you find appealing. Several Websites/Magazines can be very useful with imagery.
We will provide detailed plans and specifications to demonstrate how the proposed work will comply with the Building Codes. The local council will examine the information, and issue a Building Permit if it’s satisfied with the application.
Within our working region we have good relationships with a number of builders and suppliers. We are also happy to work with a builder that you have arranged or we can put the job out for tender.
We have trained staff who can manage contractual and financial transactions during the construction of your building. As projects tend to change, there are always unforeseen elements that may require contractual consideration and we can help with such developments.
During the observation stage, we oversee the construction phase of your project with onsite visits and monitor the construction contracts that are in place. This gives you the peace of mind that an independent and experienced professional is working on your behalf to deliver the best possible project on time and on budget.
