Our Design Approach
Each new project is approached from a fresh perspective. After listening to the requirements and establishing a brief to determine the functional requirements, conceptual plans are prepared, in order to establish the BEST design solution for the project. This often involves the preparation of computer models to aid visualization of the project.
Budgets are respected and he will do whatever it takes to meet the budget. Thus it is critical that the design is fully developed and an accurate estimate of cost obtained prior to commencing the tendering process to ensure budgets are met.
