  • Competition design

    Competition stage means to us intense teamwork. On our side we will have one of our Associates or an experienced Project Manager. Our intervention has 4 successive sub-stages:

    1. The program analysis, possibly completed by the initial ideas established by the Architect;

    2. The drafting of various proposals;

    3. The participation in dialogue to evaluate various proposals considered;

    4. The development and qualification of the chosen proposal, with input of the final deliverables ​​if required.

    If agreed by the Architect, 1 or 2 technical topics will be developed further as part of the architectural proposal. Specialists can be involved to provide initial drawings and calculations, which we try to present as explicit images.

  • System & Architectural optimisation

    We are facing ever-changing constraints and demands, and we see no reasonnable reason to design façades today like we did yesterday. To our understanding, there are no alternatives to being innovative and therefore imaginative, making buildings different as a result of deeper investigations, taking into account new factors. Not so surprisingly such an approach generates also appropriate conditions for architectural innovation and expression. This approach where technique, architecture and many other domains (economy, confort, …) are intricately related is the reason of being for our group, aiming to provide the best possible service to our clients who understand the benefit of such a mutual interaction.

  • Price optimisation

    Costing is part of our scope of work, both to establish a reasonable budget for the façade construction and to evaluate with the Design Team the direct long-term implications regarding energy consumption, maintenance, life-span… With our independence, most of the information is collected from internal databases that are always up to date. 

    Our international network allows us to have access to a wide range of products, manufacturers and contractors.

    To ensure the works totally conform to our specifications, involving our office during construction stage is recommended. We review the construction documents - drawings, calculation sheets) established by the contractor(s) and assist the required tests. We inspect mock-ups and factory prefabrication, and carry out intense site control. Detailed and comprehensive reports are established during the whole process.
