Each project consists of several phases:
First phase is the architectural study where we analyze the client’s requirements, we deal with the concept, architectural design and layout. We try to understand the locality (genius loci) and look on the possibilities that the site is offering us.
Second phase is the project for zoning compliance (for family houses this phase is merged with the project for building permit), where the building obtains more specific contours - precisely defined maximum object’s height, distances from the boundaries of the site and surrounding buildings, building layouts, structural height, the connection points for utility networks, preliminary project of statics, fire protection, HVAC etc.
Third phase is the project for building permit. It is particularly important in terms of the possibility of immediate commencement of construction works after the effective date of the building permit from the local building authority. Project for building permit is worked out to such an extent that it is possible to construct the building according to it, although with some limitations. Especially for larger and more complex objects, the level of the project for building permit is insufficient (for this reason, you need more detailed construction drawings & specifications, according to which the building is then constructed).
Construction drawings & specifications are the last project phase before construction itself, but it is also the most important one. Compared to the project for building permit, it contains specifications of materials and quantities and selected critical construction details. Processed in 1:50 scale, some parts up to 1:20, it contains a detailed technical report and clearly itemized budget of the whole projected building.
