Pre-Design Services

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.

Building Information Modeling

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.

Sun study analysis

Computer projections of sunlight and shading, to test different building configuration scenarios and at different times of day and year, in order to identify what will be experienced by occupants as well as neighbours. Typical outcomes include diagrams, still images and animations. This is a great way to check the performance of design options.

Urban design and planning

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.

Expert witnessing & technical opinion

Assisting your legal council with expert analysis of building and planning related issues where there is a dispute, providing technical evidence and visualizations to support the arguments put forward.
