Services

Integrated design requires a design process that involves several specialities working together in collaboration from the conceptual stage till the handing over of the facility for effective use. We are a single point of contact coordinating the entire spectrum of specialities from design and detailed engineering to construction management and post construction support. Our long term association with a consortium of consultants who are renowned professionals facilitates a seamless design process that incorporates up to date know -how and cost effective designs that are fully compliant with statutory codes. Our joint expertise cover the following areas ;-

Planning, Architecture, Civil Engineering

Our in-house team of architects and civil engineers work as a team to analyse all data received from clients and integrate inputs from our specialist consultants to develop alternative concepts and maintain the integrity of the architectural concept through detailing and coordination of all drawings and designs. They are also responsible for ensuring compliance with all statutory planning and building codes. The process involves:

  • Master plan and conceptual scheme
  • Preliminary design options with budgetary costs
  • Detailed working drawings, material specifications, quantity surveying and costing
  • Tender documentation and assisting in short listing of bidders
  • Bid evaluation and recommendations
  • Good for construction drawings
  • Verification of shop drawings of suppliers
  • Revision and change management

Structural Engineering

Our consultants and architects jointly develop alternative structural solutions and architectural concepts for projects based on the economy of various options, technology needed to satisfy functional aspects and aesthetics demanded by the situation. The designs are carried out to according to all relevant design and installation codes to ensure complete safety and serviceability of the building. The work involves:

  • Conceptual schemes
  • Detailed designs and drawings
  • Enabling third party design checks.
  • Assessing alternate cost saving proposals from contractors, if required
  • Verification of fabricators drawings and approving erection procedures
  • Approving material test results
  • Issuing stability certificates

MEP

Work with clients in developing a detailed program for power and utilities distribution, ventilation and air-conditioning based on process data such as equipment layouts, lighting levels, temperature and humidity conditions and special civil requirements for equipment and occupation. Integrate them with the architectural design and optimise factors such as energy efficiency, capital and running costs with long term maintenance of the installation. The work involves:

  • Developing the design basis
  • Schematic designs indicating equipment and energy requirements for operation of the plant
  • Detailed engineering and design drawings complying with statutory electricity, pollution control, health and fire safety codes.
  • Participate in bid procedures
  • Advising on arrangements with utility companies
  • Verification of suppliers' drawings and approving specialist designs
  • Approving test results
  • Testing and commissioning and certifying the installation

Information Technology

Develop a complete understanding of the network requirements based on client's security, safety and communication protocol, and design the data network and advice on connectivity issues.

  • Developing the design basis
  • Schematic designs
  • Participate in bid process
  • Verification of suppliers' drawings and approving specialist designs
  • Approving test results
  • Certifying the installation

Landscape Architecture

The landscape designer works closely with our architects to integrate landscape features with building design and site characteristics. He will work out proposals based on soil conditions water availability and climatic factors. Design solutions will be environment friendly and sustainable. The process involves:

  • Master plan and conceptual scheme
  • Preliminary design options with budgetary costs
  • Detailed working drawings with detailed specifications and costing
  • Tender documentation and assisting in short listing of bidders
  • Bid evaluation and recommendations
  • Good for planting drawings

IGBC / LEED Accreditation

Designs are audited by our consultant who reports to our partner Suresh Babu who is himself a LEED accredited professional. Computer simulations are carried out assessing the outcomes and solutions are devised to improve efficiency based on cost benefit studies. The process involves:

  • Collecting design and operational data
  • Simulating lighting and ventilation conditions
  • Equipment ratings
  • Assessing effects of alternate proposals
  • Rating of project on IGBC scale
  • Suggesting methods for improvement in rating

Project Management

Our civil engineering division is responsible for translating the project from design to reality with full fidelity. Our project teams work in close co-operation with our design office to ensure a well coordinated construction process. Quality and time management are of high priority and team members are assigned to monitor each area and interface with contractors teams to achieve the required quality standards and planned timelines. Cost management and enforcing contractual obligations of all contractors are prime responsibilities of senior team members. The entire process is documented in detail by a documentation team that tracks and prepares all reports to the management. Work components are:

  • Planning, scheduling and monitoring of all time lines
  • Quantity surveying and cost management
  • Check GFC and shop drawings and method statements for all works
  • Manage all project communications
  • Coordination of all utilities and machinery installation
  • Conduct and record quality checks on material and workmanship
  • Enforce all statutory safety regulations
  • Enforce good housekeeping
  • Ensure construction waste disposal according to environmental laws
