We believe the role of the architect is more than simply design, it involves gaining a thorough understanding of the client and their business. This ensures our solutions meet their needs and increases the value of the client’s related activities.
To achieve this, our brief begins with project programming and extends through to facility management. Though our network of members we have the ability to offer these services on an international level. We can manage a project in one country and oversee its development in another. We pride ourselves on the ability to understand our client’s goals and make them a reality. Each client has different goals, be it the creation of wealth, design, environmental preservation, safety, integration, size, budget or time. We insist on defining these objectives before starting a project.
In addition, we aim to gain a level of friendship and trust with our clients. This creates a positive working environment which in turn allows us to better understand their goals and achieve additional benefits for their business.
Master Planning and Urban Design
We create master plans balancing our ability to create a commercially viable plan that offers meaningful investment opportunity, whilst meeting the needs of the local community and the statutory obligations of the planning system.
We produce design solutions that contribute to the built environment and urban fabric, with a lifelong appeal for future generations. We develop our master plans from an examination and understanding of the site, taking into account landscape, geologic history, adjacent communities and demographics. We understand our responsibility to the environment for our private space and public domain.
Our team of master planning/urban designers bring together a variety of expertise, our successful working relationship with many local authorities in Ireland and our high success rate in planning permissions granted to our clients, is a measure of how we provide a comprehensive planning service in all building matters.
