PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN

 
Located in Sedgefield, Western Cape and servicing clients from George to Knysna and beyond, we regularly operate within both the George and Knysna municipalities. We have experience on projects in the local area and elsewhere including Johannesburg, and as remote as northern Malawi. Site visits form an important part of the client consultation and engagement process, while the office in Sedgefield provides a working base and a convenient, central meeting point. We enjoy a good working relationship with civil engineers, an environmental consultancy, a town planner and a surveyor with a thorough understanding of local conditions and guidelines allowing clients to meet their compliance requirements via a cooperative group of independent consultants.
 


 

A RANGE OF SERVICES

 
We are able to assist with a range of aspects of the building and approvals process for new and existing dwellings and structures.
We can…
…take your concepts to the next level. Using state of the art software, we will generate a 3D working model allowing you to see your vision come to life, making instantaneous modifications during meetings so that you can make accurate and informed decisions on the shape of your home. With a keen interest in optimisation of orientation and design for passive energy efficiency, we can guide you to ensure that the plans of your new home is tailored to the location and to your needs.
…update and produce plans for existing homes or businesses. Many owners are unaware of the requirement for the approved plans on file at the municipality to match the existing buildings on site and find the process to seek compliance and retrospective municipal approval difficult to navigate. We will manage all facets of the process on your behalf; producing plans for as-built structures, guiding owners through the compliance process with municipal offices and advocating for timely approval.
…manage projects on your behalf; engaging and supervising subcontractors and ensuring that materials and workmanship meet the specifications of the owner and the requirements of the building code and other articles of legislation. We are adept at managing projects for clients who are overseas, ensuring timely and comprehensive communication so that the end result matches the expectation of the client.
