Through the balance of originality and practicality, we appreciate that your unique project warrants a unique approach.
To make our experience together run as smooth as possible, NP Designs follows a succinct approach.
In this phase, we will be assessing the project brief which includes the type of architecture, size and budget. Client requirements will be scrutinized as we gather the content necessary to consult with the authorities for relevant planning policies, in order to be able to move on to the next step.
The consultation process allows us to analyze site layout possibilities and set the development options. Through this information we develop the analysis diagram to meet the criteria and prepare the concept design, determining its outline for client comments and approval.
In the schematic design phase, we develop the designs for each of the required disciplines including the architectural, structural, electrical and mechanical preliminary designs. Here, the architects and the engineers agree with the client on the systems, specifications, and materials to be used. In turn, producing schematic drawings following the municipality regulations, building code and in coordination with the engineering process.
In this stage the results of the schematic design are applied in more detail to the various disciplines. The design is finalized and all materials to be used in the construction process are identified, along with the general and custom details (architectural, structural, electrical, and mechanical) in full dimensions.
Phase 5 involves the preparation of the required drawings and documents, and their submission to the relevant authorities/municipalities for their review and approval, and consequently receive the required permit to move forward with the tender package process towards the project completion.
Once the final design stage is approved and the building permit issued, the tender package is prepared, which includes all related documents to the project. The bill of quantities is prepared along to the project specifications, contract conditions, and detailed tender drawings to define the work that is to be carried out by the contractor. Once this is submitted to the client, we consider the project completed.
