Marshalling the information required to determine the best strategies for delivering the project, including; clarifying your brief, setting priorities, realistic budget, identifying opportunities and constraints with your site, researching planning rules, obtaining detailed survey, geotechnical and other information that may be required.
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals and their clients the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.
Detailed analysis of the building construction to establish Building Code compliance for energy use, and to test the impact of different building forms and other strategic choices on annual heating costs. Another great way to test the performance of design options.
Understanding of both planning rules and what makes for successful urban contexts. Design for optimization at a scale larger than just individual buildings, so that improved amenity for all parties is achieved, within a development and beyond.
