The role of the architect is above all to listen to you; Based on your needs or those of your company, your tastes, your lifestyle, the evolution of your family, the architect helps you define your project. Its added value consists of a variety of actions listed below and an iterative design process where adjustments and modifications can be made to each of the project design stages.
Commitment and ongoing professional services
Our commitment is not only to provide you with plans, but also to provide you with sustained professional support in all your construction, renovation and conversion projects. We offer you continuous design services and technical expertise in construction. These professional services can begin before the choice of your land, and continue through studies, sketches and plans for permits and construction, until the completion of the project. We offer these architectural design services for all types of buildings; institutional, commercial, residential and industrial.
Invest in design
The architect does not sell a model or a standard plan, as your real estate project is not a short-lived consumer product, but a sustainable, tailor-made project that perfectly meets your needs. The architect provides professional and technical services on all aspects of a building, so that your investment is profitable and better protected. The architect is a member of a professional order governing the practice of architecture and subscribes to a professional insurance guaranteeing the excellence and quality of his work.
Scope of services
The architect is the person who engages with each individual or community to design, develop, rehabilitate, transform or preserve public and private spaces. To call on an architect is to benefit from the creativity and technical expertise of a competent designer, attentive to the needs of all and able to achieve them. His advice is the guarantee that life in our homes, our buildings, our neighborhoods, our cities and our landscapes will be designed for the human. The architect is an indispensable player in our living environment.
Respect for needs and coordination
Your architect is a person of dialogue but he is also a person of measurement: he proposes you a project compatible with your financial means and answering perfectly to the requirements of your initial needs. It will work with the engineers, the entrepreneur and the different trades, in order to make you benefit from a sustainable and quality achievement. He will coordinate the project with the municipality to obtain the building permit and may be present on site to ensure compliance with plans and the achievement of objectives.
The architect, through his overall vision of the project, designs the building so that it is sustainable, so that its construction is environmentally friendly and that its use limits the consumption of natural resources. It must take into account the climate and the site in which the building will integrate: its orientation and sunshine, the prevailing winds, the topography, the position of existing trees and soil types, etc. Today, architects can design zero or negative buildings. Buildings are no longer consumers of resources (energy, water, materials, etc.) but energy generators and filters of their immediate environment.
