Project Management

Project Management

The function of Project Management is a relatively recent development as a specialist role in its own right. Consultant architects and engineers have traditionally undertaken the project management function as part of their professional service to clients. However, on large or complex projects an independent project manager can be an advantage to ensure the clients’ interests are maintained. We can provide your project management services to oversee elements of the design and construction processes from site selection to building completion.

Landscape Design

Schematic Landscape Design

We believe that Landscape design is an integral part of any architectural project. The landscape in which a project is situated has an impact on the micro climate and by extension how the building and external spaces are used and will function. We can provide services for the design and implementation of these external spaces whether they are courtyards, plazas, swimming pools, ponds, decks, covered areas, shade structures, hardscaping or gardens. Our aim is to create “outside spaces” that can be enjoyed year round, whatever the weather.

  • Prepare initial “Concept” design sketches for review – These may include schematic plans and 3-D renderings
  • Assist & Advise the client on the selection of additional professional consultants such as Landscape Architects, Irrigation experts, Swimming Pool Consultants or Lighting consultants
  • Our designs will indicate planted areas and the density and scale of the plants to be installed whether it is a formal avenue of trees to frame a view; a dense hedge to provide privacy or a trellis of Jasmine to provide a scent; however we do not specify plants. We will work in conjunction with the landscape installer / planting supplier / designer on the selection of plant types and quantities.
  • Preparation of detailed designs, construction drawings & specifications
