• Feasibility Studies:

    Arkitektura Inc offers pre-design services to inform and help owners substantiate the investment. Financial, economic, and technical factors are determined regarding the validity and integrity of the project before the initiation of planning and design. Recommendations, analyses, and evaluations of potential sites, future structures, and proposed developments can be offered.

  • Site Analysis:

    Analysis of the surrounding man made or natural environments that encompass the potential site are evaluated. Selection, development and utilization studies are objectively performed and communicated or established as are limitations, covenants, or restrictions. A report of findings is generated.

  • Site surveying:

    Arkitektura Inc will coordinate engagement of the appropriate professionals to provide mapping of the subject property (s) to determine legally binding boundaries, easements, topographical characteristics and/ or utility features of a site become the basic documentation of any given project.

  • Program:

    Research and an intense discovery process is necessary to shape a concise, and complete architectural building program that will allow building owners and users to test their own criteria and vision of the facility and validate their functional requirements and wishes. This process provides for a clear method of information communication to the project design team through interviews.

  • Conceptual Design:

    Building siting, proposed floor plan layouts, and the establishment of the aesthetic look, feel, and massing of the proposed facility are all determined at this stage of the process. Ideas are communicated utilizing digital 3D modeling, artistic renderings in color or black and white along with a comprehensive vision and massing of the structure and surrounding landscape.

  • Schematic Design:

    The most creative phase of a building development is objective (function, circulation, systems, structural aspects) and subjective (cultural elements, massing, spatial relationships). Resolution of siting issues will optimally locate the proposed building on the subject property. Cross sections define structural and architectural materials and elements. Systems planning, ceiling layouts, door and window locations, preliminary room finishes are provided to define the physical parameters of the building as well as provide bases for determining probable costs.

  • Construction Documents and Specifications:

    Documents from which the contractor will bid and build the project. Accuracy of dimensions and material intent along with completeness and coordination of all engineering disciplines are key to the successful completion in this phase of the project.

  • Construction Administration:

    This phase includes bid evaluation and contractor award recommendations. Through construction, the project architect ensures massing, schedule and budget are satisfactory and within requirements on behalf of the owner. Inspections and testing are administered during completion stages.

  • Existing Facility Renovation Design:

    Many buildings wear out over time with older systems failure (HVAC, electrical, plumbing) or outdated space and room layouts and interior finishes. Remodeling, renovation and additions are often an alternative to creating a new building.

  • Code Compliance Evaluation:

    Existing buildings are inspected for adherence to life safety, ADA accessibility. Emergency systems, Energy usage and consumption, structural and seismic adequacies – all are evaluated and documented with recommendations of improvement.

  • As Built Document Re-creation:

    In case original CADD files are lost or unavailable in digital format we are able to scan paper drawings from contractors and amend or revise plans for space modifications, or to show existing conditions.

  • Post Occupancy Evaluation:

    Evaluations shortly after occupancy become important to provide the owner the chance to correct issues that may require the contractor’s input and involvement before construction contract closeout.

  • Master Planning:

    Involves integration of the feasibility, site analysis and site survey to provide guidelines for the development of residential, commercial, or industrial areas within the community.
