What We Do

... SPECIAL PROJECTS PRODUCTION.

Our strength lies in the unique expertise from responding to a wide variety of combined engineering, fabrication and installation challenges for over 40 one-of-a-kind, award-winning custom custom architecture projects.

Integrated consultancy early in the design process protects the integrity and feasibility of the original vision. A multi-phased approach provides a catalogue of options and opportunities leading to precise specifications. This way, vision and price remain in tune to create optimum value.

It is our goal to make great ideas come true and pursue the highest standard of design development culture, reducing waste of critical process time and avoiding costly redesign efforts. Instead, guiding the vision through all the options to achieve exciting expression and function, culminating in projects of award-winning caliber.

Expertise

You have created the vision and the napkin sketch is done. That is when we want to start working with you. We believe you need us early in the process, when we can engage to develop the most efficient solutions.

We offer three major models of integration whichever suits best your project situation:

1. Phased Design Production

Based on the initial design vision we establish criteria for various material choices, fabrication and pricing solutions. This results in a comprehensive bid package and conclusive specifications.

Phase ONE - (a)Detailed drawing documentation and specification. (b)Structural supports- and installation concept. (c)Estimated pricing documentation for multiple material&finish options. (d)Representative samples of the various options. (e)Presentation meetings with designer.

Phase TWO - (a)Coordination and collection of bids from possible fabricators and installer teams. (b)Coordination and collection of shop drawings for approval by designer. (c)Coordination of Mockup/sample if requested. (d)Assistance with site dimensions and integration with conditions.

Phase THREE - (a)Guidance and supervision for delivery, assembly and install of all fabricated items. (b)Punch list compliance.

2. FAST TRACK Design Build

Based on the initial design vision and guidelines we engage in an initial design development phase which results in criteria for various material choices, fabrication and all-in fixed pricing solutions:

(a)Schematic drawing documentation and general specification. (b)Structural supports and installation concept. (c)Pricing documentation. (d)Representative samples. (e)Presentation meetings with owner. (f)Shop drawings for approval by owner. (g)Site dimensions and integration with space conditions. (h)Mockup/sample if requested. (i)Fabrication of all components. (j)Delivery, assembly and install of all fabricated items.

3. Production Bid

Based on an construction documentation we provide an all-in engineering, fabrication and installation pricing solution in form of a bid to the General Contractor:

(a)Shop drawings for approval by owner. (b)Site dimensions and integration with space conditions. (c)Mockup/sample if requested. (d)Fabrication of all components. (e)Delivery, assembly and install of all fabricated items. (f)Punch list compliance.
