Design and Consultancy services

Architectural design

The architectural design focuses on the aesthetic and function of the structure. Its design works to create a space that flows with its surroundings. Even though we have shared a number of architectural designs of works we have done in the past on this website, each client’s needs and land orientation is different. Therefore, we take brief from each customer and develop a design suitable for their case.

The first step of the design phase is the schematic design. The schematic design is where our architect meets the client and gathers information on the needs, style, and wants for the project. From there he will create two to three design options for the client to review and comment.

Upon feedback from our client and taking into regard any changes the client wants, we then proceed with design development. Here we develop schematic designs to an approved design concept. Once the designs are agreed upon, we submit them to the planning department of relevant county government for approvals. The architect will put together drawings with a lot of detail on them to be followed when building.

Structural design

While our architect will focus on designing the visually appealing features of your project, we have structural engineers who place their focus on strength, durability and safety to design your building. The aim is to determine safe and economical specifications for a structure and to ensure that a planned structure will be sufficiently strong to carry its intended load.

The Structural engineer will conduct a structural analysis to determine what internal and external forces could affect the structure. Then design a structure with the appropriate materials and reinforcements to satisfy the requirements.

Quantity Surveying/Cost and Contract Management

We manage all costs relating to building projects, from the initial calculations to the final figures. We seek to minimise the cost of a project and enhance value for money, while still achieving the required standards and quality. This includes ensuring statutory building regulations are met. We prepare estimates and costs of the work from project initiation to completion.

A Bill of Quantities (BQs) is prepared which show the quantity and specifications of all materials and finishes schedule in detail based on client’s needs and budget. Rates are built up from market cost of materials and labour plus management cost to arrive at the total estimated cost of your project. prepare tender and contract documents, including bills of quantities with the architect and/or the client.

In cost and contract management, our personnel will;

• assist in establishing a client’s requirements and undertake feasibility studies
