Project Team

We are appointed as specialists in addition to the conventional design team and do not replace or take over any role or responsibilities of any of the other consultants.

Typically we are appointed during stage 1 to assist the architect in exploring the possibilities, opportunities and challenges in the design.

We then assist in establishing applicable overall strategies. These strategies are then coordinated with the rest of the design team.

Our service is directed at special projects with special needs: conventional building designs can be managed by conventional design teams.
