Architectural Services


We offer services to our clients under two main headings:


We provide these services in six phases.



The first four phases involve architectural design (project) services, while the fifth and sixth phases cover implementation and management services.


Phase 1 - PRE-DESIGN





Phase 5 - BIDDING



Our pre-design phase comprises a detailed analysis and assessment of elements that will influence the design, including the following:

  • Determining the client’s project-specific requests, means, and requirements
  • Examining relevant administrative, legal and technical documents, as well as other relevant information
  • Assessing the site in which the project will be undertaken
  • Examining and performing on-site due diligence processes for current structures
  • Determining the optimal process and methodology for the design and application phases
  • Selecting and coordinating engineers, designers, and other specialists
  • Evaluating project-related spaces and their interactions
  • Presenting initial sketches and reports



Schematic Design

At this stage, we map out the course of the project. Based on meticulous research and analyses conducted in the Pre-design Phase, we present comprehensive sketches: transforming a vision into a comprehensible project concept and enabling our client to reach their final decision.

The schematic design includes:

  • Block plan
  • Site plan
  • Floor plans and key section
  • Key elevations
  • Perspective sketches
  • Architectural design statement
  • Area calculations (volume calculations if necessary)
  • Preliminary cost estimate (based on unit prices announced by the Ministry)


We present the client with two copies of Phase 2 files.






Design Development

All design decisions are made during the design development phase. Drawings and documentation are presented, following an assessment of scheduling requirements, function diagram, project space and environment data, client requests and other relevant data obtained during the preparation and concept phases.

During the design development phase, client and architect agree on design, with the architect owning the copyrights upon the client’s approval for the project.

The design development includes:

  • Block plan
  • Site plan
  • Floor plans
  • Roof plan
  • Sections
  • Elevations
  • 3D Renderings
  • Summary interior schedule
  • Architectural design statement


We present the client with three copies of Phase 3 files.

Construction Documents

These are detailed projects prepared for use in offices and construction sites during the manufacturing phase in line with the approved design development. These also include the required sizes and material information specified to build a structure.

They demonstrate elements related to the structural plans and the elements of all equipment systems within the structure that may affect the construction, where the construction materials are used, along with methods, shapes, and properties. The construction documents will also include references to a relevant system and manufacturing details while determining manufacturing elements, as well as delineating the limits of responsibility held by different stakeholders involved in the construction. They also form the basis of quantities and discoveries conducted to determine the cost ceiling for a construction project. Definite zone lists serve as an appendix of the construction documents. The architectural construction document is also a coordination project. It schematically shows information regarding each section of the construction influencing the structure in the projects prepared by construction, mechanical, electrical engineers, and other technical experts.

System detail drawings are prepared and executed together and in compliance with construction documents. These drawings are prepared in alignment with standards applied in the office and on the construction site. They include the openings, properties, connection details, and detailed measures of the materials and production related to special parts, along with references related to specific details. The system details consist of the partial plan, section, and elevation drawings of the related sections (facade, roof, stairs, etc.).

Manufacturing details are prepared in line with the construction documents and system details, and they are carried out together with construction documents. These are detailed drawings prepared to produce building elements (side coatings, guardrails, frames, etc.) manufactured in workshops and factories outside the construction site. Manufacturer companies generally apply such manufacturing details following an architect's approval. In this case, the architect ensures that these components comply with the other manufactured elements on site.


Construction documents include the following:

  • Block plan
  • Site plan
  • Floor plans
  • At least two sections/cross-sections of the building(s)
  • Elevations
  • System details such as stairs, roof, facade, and the like (as plan, section, and elevation)
  • Interior schedule

We present the client with four copies of Phase 4 files.


*Construction documents constitute the final phase of architectural design services. Architectural services conclude with the delivery of construction documents. Activities following this phase are considered implementation and management services.


**Prior to the provision of implementation and management services, our specialized solution partners may prepare tender documents such as technical specifications, bill of quantities, building cost ceiling studies, special technical specifications, bidding specifications, and draft contracts, at the client's expense.


Bidding activities involve processes aimed at helping clients select their contractors for the execution of a project.

This process includes investigating contractor and/or constructor competencies and assessing proposals, as well as offering advisory services regarding contracts between clients and contractors. Conclusions are presented in a report to the client.

Construction Administration

Construction administration refers to activities undertaken to build in line with project specifications and standards.

In this context:

  • Clients receive assistance in all technical and architectural aspects related to the work during this phase.
  • Clients receive assistance in selecting contractors, manufacturers, and materials.
  • Architect grant the permits required to start the construction works. Before any work begins, contractors are provided with a description/explanation of the on-site activities to be undertaken.
  • Manufacturing and other applications are reviewed on-site through scheduled or unannounced site visits.
  • Contractors receive all instructions required to ensure compliance with project specs and standards.
  • Where applicable, any necessary alterations to the existing project or additions to the project, along with any rules or regulations that may require changes in the application, are prepared and included.
  • The delivery of as-built projects takes place during this phase.
  • Final accounts are audited and approved.
  • Acceptance procedures and examinations are conducted by the client in conjunction with the firm, which provides any necessary assistance or explanations.
  • The building is accepted upon the on-site examination on the provision that it complies with contracts and their annexes, projects, and specifications.
