Our approach to each project is tailored to the requirements of the brief, client, and site, is accomplished through sheer hard work, dedication, and most importantly, having a clear and unique vision for each project.
Understanding each project with its unique elements and characteristics and the consideration and implementation of the appropriate construction methods and materials, and the integration of building information modeling in our workflow, are the factors that set us apart from the competition.
The office is open to the idea of working in collaboration with other firms and has indeed joined efforts with several partners working on projects from early design stages to completion forming great relationships which proved to be mutually beneficial.
At this point, we will take the schematic design you selected, as well as any requested modifications, and revise the design as necessary. We will also update the cost estimate we provided during the Schematic Design phase to reflect any changes we’ve made to the initial design. We take our clients’ budgets very seriously and continually strive to provide accurate estimates throughout the early stages of design. This phase may require additional give and take as we work with you to finalize the details of the design before moving into the next phase.
By now, we will have settled on a final design and will begin preparing drawings, notes, and technical specifications necessary for bidding, construction, and permit application. This is the phase that many people think of when they picture the work of an architect – the creation of blueprints. Contractors will use these detailed drawings and specifications to prepare for the next phase in the architectural design process.
Having an architect on your side during the bidding phase of home construction is of great advantage to you. At minimum, we can aid you in developing a list of qualified contractors for your bid list and submitting bid packages to bidders. But we can also review submitted bids, provide analysis, and help you compare the cost figures that you receive from your bidders. This phase will ensure the contractors you are considering for your construction project are reading the blueprints correctly and are providing an accurate bid for your project.
Finally, once you have selected a contractor and construction is under way, we move into the fifth phase of the architectural design process – construction administration. During this phase, we will administer the construction process to assure conformance with design intent, visit the site during construction, and address any field conditions as they arise. This final phase, along with all the others described above, will ensure the smooth and satisfactory completion of your home construction or renovation project. Our ultimate goal as architects is to help you turn your dream of a new or renovated home into an affordable reality. Contact us and take the first step toward your new home.
Please request ‘plan consent document’ from municipality or the sub-city where your project site is located. Once you have the plan consent, you can develop your project program based on the plan consent received. Please visit our office with the plan consent and your anticipated project. We will go from there to assess your plan and propose our recommendation.
Currently, there are no website in Ethiopia that entails this subject for project owners.
