What they say



How can we start a project?

You can start by having a phone conversation with one of our skilled designers to better understand your design an architecture needs and to introduce yourself to the person you will be working with. We may also now make an approximation of the project's costs.


Can you sign our NDA?

If a non disclosure agreement is carefully drafted and all loopholes are avoided, we can rest assured that the credit for our hard work will not go to some other entity, and there will not be any financial losses. Nondisclosure agreements protect businesses from losses and maintain positive relationships between the parties.


At what point in my project should I involve a Designer?

A designer will assist you in creating a workable and sensible budget, assisting you with the town planning procedure, assisting you in obtaining competitive quotes for the work, managing consultants like surveyors and engineers, managing the budget, and managing the construction contract. Importantly, your architect will oversee the work throughout the construction phase to help you acquire the standard of finishes you desire.


What is 3D architectural rendering?

In order to visualize an architectural design, rendering is done in three dimensions. It depicts how the area will appear once it has been constructed. A 3D rendering aids in the more precise development and presentation of designs. For investors and developers, marketing, selling, or leasing their property is made simpler by the presentation of a very lifelike image of the design.

How long before I can start building?

We anticipate it will take about 3 months before building can begin after you have chosen your designer. For a more accurate estimate that is more project-specific, please contact a member of our team.
