At Architectural Concepts Ltd we can provide you with design and documentation services for all types and sizes of residential projects - from modest alterations,to million-dollar luxury homes - new homes, additions, alterations, major renovations - we've done it all!
We believe that all buildings need to be designed specifically to suit the site and the people who will live in them and enjoy them.
Our Services typically follow the stages below, however if you already have your own design or firm ideas, we're more than happy to tailor our involvement to suit what you need.
* Concept Design *
We'll meet with you and discuss your design brief, visit your site, and prepare a Concept specifically for you. We use the latest ArchiCAD 3D building modelling software, which allows you to fully visualise the design, and make informed design decisions. It takes the guesswork out of the design stage, and you don't have to be great at reading plans to know what you're getting!
* Developed Design *
This is where we meet to discuss your thoughts and comments on the initial concept design, and then incorporate these into the design. We will review and firm up your selections for the building materials, and can even arrange for a budget estimate to be prepared for you.
* Building Consent Documentation *
(the "working drawings")
We'll meet with you again to confirm your selections, then we'll prepare the plans to a stage where the structural engineer can do their work.
Once the engineering is completed work is resumed on the Working Drawings and Specifications.
We use the latest MasterSpec specification system, which is fully customised to suit your project.
