Delivering designs with the latest in technology
Our senior members have extensive experience working both on small and large-scale projects. Our firm offers a comprehensive architectural service including conceptual design, design development, technical documentation, contract administration and site inspections. Our architectural technologists and technicians have exceptional knowledge and understanding of building construction details, timelines and spaces to ensure working drawings are clear and easy to understand.
The practice is fully computerised which enables speedy execution of projects of any nature, scale and location. We make use of Computer Aided Architectural Design (CAAD) software programs that offer the latest in 3D rendering technology. This also facilitates the input of all the members of our team in the early design phases.
We offer the following services:
- Investigation, evaluation, consultation and advice – This is vital for the identification of our client’s needs and objectives and includes a feasibility study.
- Planning, schematic and preliminary studies – The development of our client’s initial requirements into the design brief, confirming the key requirements.
- Design development – Preparation of a developed design to include structural and building services systems, updated specifications and a cost plan.
- Working drawings and specifications – The preparation of technical designs that comply with the standards of construction safety.
- Technical co-ordination – This incorporates the work and expertise of specialist consultants and engineers.
- Contract administration and site inspections – To provide an independent assessment of the construction area and limit our client’s liability during the day to day running of the project.
Our practice has a service-orientated infrastructure and is focused and committed to providing clients with the highest level of professionalism. It is the policy of Mthulisi Msimang Architects not to work on more than five major projects concurrently. By ensuring that we do not over-commit ourselves, we guarantee a quality and reliable professional service on each project undertaken.
We also endeavour to work in close collaboration with the client, consultants and other key stakeholders within each project, as we value consultation and make it one of our central philosophies.
