Archen Architecture offers a flexible service approach depending on the client's budget for professional fees.

We offer a wide range of services from a basic service of concept plans and construction plans with electrical designs to a full architectural service with site administration and even a full turnkey construction management service, which includes all professional services including engineering and interior design.

Archen will present all concept designs with 3D views to assist the client in visualising the design as a finished product thus taking away a lot of the stress ordinarily associated with such a project. The client can be confident in knowing exactly what the completed project will look like right at the outset from the design concept stage.

The entire project is designed including ceiling designs with bulkheads and even external areas like landscaping, paving, swimming pool and entertainment areas nothing is left to chance.

Site Investigation

Prior to putting any design work in hand, all relevant site information is obtained from the local authorities, home owners associations, etc.

Site dimensions
Town and regional planning restrictions and schemes
Service connections and services
Estate/Association guidelines (if any)
Topographical survey
Views
Neighbouring influences and privacy considerations
Prevailing weather conditions

Design Presentation 

Each design is a careful integration of balance, proportion, space and light creating new and innovative designs as individual as our clients are. It is vital for clients to understand fully the concept of the flow and planning and therefore full-colour CAD plans are presented and explained in design meetings.

3D Visualisation

Once the planning is finalised, we focus on the external features and details by means of a 3D photo-real presentation.

The advantages of this are evident and it is a crucial design tool for finalising colours, textures and materials that will be used in the completed project. This is presented by large, photo-quality printouts, which the client can take home and appreciate at any time.

Construction Documentation

This is an important stage in which highly-detailed, scaled plans are provided which indicate all sections, elevations, details, schedules and specifications in order to assist the contractor in bringing the concept to reality.

These plans are submitted to the local authority for approval and given to other consultants and specialists on the project.

Included in this stage is the electrical design. These plans indicate all positions and types of lighting, power poinst and built-in electrical appliances.

Specifications and tendering of plans for pricing is also offered to assist the client.

Site Inspections

A number of site inspections are carried out to ensure that the contractor is accurately following the plans and the project is running smoothly, thus minimising and/or eliminating delays and variations. Archen Architecture assists the contractor with any additional queries he may have and we view it as being important to work together as a team towards a common goal to the advantage of the client.

Advising the client with selection of finishes, specialists, consultants and suppliers, Archen assists clients from start to finish so that the end result of the building is something of which the client and ourselves can be proud.
