Property development is a process that lasts from the selection of the property required for the developer’s plans, through the planning and construction stages, the occupancy procedure, up until the transfer of possession of the building.
The comprehensive survey extends to the legal, engineering and financial conditions and to functionality.
On the basis of lot number and address, we provide information on the permissible development ratio of the plot, i.e. the amount of ground area that may be constructed on, the number of floors, and the orientation of the building on the plot, etc. During property consultation, we give proposals relating to the functions to be set up, and relating to advantageous aesthetic and usage solutions as well.
Before a project is started, we draw up a feasibility study within the scope of our design consultation service, which includes an examination and assessment of the legal, engineering and economic factors, and we determine the methods of how the development may be implemented. In the interest of the best decision being made, the study contains a presentation of the necessity of the development, the project scheduling, the management details, market research and financial data. In the case of certain tendered projects, it is compulsory to draw up a feasibility study, which provides the background materials for the tender.
In the cases specified in the relevant legislation, it is mandatory to prepare an environmental impact examination to estimate and evaluate the expected significant environmental condition changes. The results of the various stages of the environmental impact examination are summarised in a preliminary and detailed environmental impact study with the involvement of an environmental protection specialist.
A fundamental requirement of modern architectural planning is for the building to operate in the most effective and energy-efficient way after completion. Therefore, we perform a survey to determine the extent of the demand for this. When elaborating the energy concept, we examine green solutions as well as the possibility of the active and passive use of renewable energy. Economic and environmentally oriented operation also has an important role. Therefore, a monitoring system is an essential part of the building, with which we obtain a precise analysis of energy consumption. In the case of procedures for obtaining the occupancy permit, we draw up the prescribed attested energy certificate.
We monitor the project’s technical, financial and administrative processes during the entire planning and construction process. Among the first steps taken, we help the client put together the detailed development programme. During the construction permit application phase, we monitor and assist the smooth procurement of the required specialist authority, proprietor and operator consents, public utility declarations, and the acquisition of the executable construction permit. If required, we carry out all the tasks involved in the plot formation procedures, starting from the on-site survey, up until the registration of the property in the real estate register.
During the planning process, we treat communication between the collaborating planners with special care, with emphasis on collision detection and harmonisation between the various engineering plans. We provide assistance in selecting the construction contractor: during the tendering procedure, we perform budget analyses and comparisons of the technical content. In the scope of on-site designer supervision, we monitor that the planned solutions are implemented without error and that any substitution solutions are technically compliant. This is especially important because as of 1 January 2013 drawing inspection , as an independent quality assurance task, has ceased to exist.
If so requested, we will also undertake technical supervision , as an independent quality assurance task, has ceased to exist.
While acting as a technical supervisor and the developer’s on-site representative, we check and advise on the observance of the relevant legislation, authority prescriptions, standards, contracts and construction documentation during the entire construction work, and we also ensure that the construction log is completed and the required reports are drawn up.
We introduced the ISO 9001 quality management system in 2003, which complies with the strictest of international requirements. Our objective is to perfect the standard of our services with a stable, transparent administrative background as well as to increase the satisfaction of our current and future Clients.
