Predesign

After an initial meeting, Kaizon’s architects will start to gather key information such as the certificate of title, drainage plans and zoning and town planning. Sometimes, you as the client may have some of this information or if not we can help ascertain the information. At this stage the client also needs to engage a site surveyor.

Concept Design

Kaizon’s architects will then start developing concepts. These will be influenced by the project scope, project budget and your individual requirements. Kaizon’s architects will investigate a number of ideas which will then be developed through drawings, floor plans and perspective sketches or computer renderings.

Developed Design

After a concept is agreed upon, Kaizon’s architects will test the ideas, refine the details, and shape the final design. During this stage Kaizon can assist you with the estimate costs and liaise with other professional consultancy firms such as the structural engineer, drainage engineer, etc. Kaizon’s architects can also help in securing resource consent if it is needed for your project.

Detailed Design

Once resource consent is approved (if required), your project will progress to the detailed design phase that allows a construction contractor to assess the full scope of the project. This will include construction details, materials and finishes. Kaizon’s architects can help with: communicating with the Building Consent Authority, assist you with choosing a quality builder, and help you with the tendering process.

Contract Observation

Kaizon’s architectural design services can play an important role in overseeing the construction phase of your project with onsite visits and monitoring the construction contracts that are in place. Kaizon can observe the quality of construction, as well as point out any potential issues that may arise.
