Commercial Architecture SERVICES In Melbourne
Co-lab Architecture offers full commercial architectural services, as well as interior design and landscaping. We have worked with property companies to design multi-residential developments and have provided services in the hospitality industry. This includes cafes, restaurants, retail and entertainment spaces and hotel resort structures. Our work has involved developing and integrating branding into the building design in order to create ensure our clients’ vision for their commercial project is fully realised.
Co-lab utilises leading technology to optimise collaboration with our clients. This includes developing a detailed virtual model of each project. This allows each client to virtually interact with their structure, drawing on this experience to highlight additional changes required to meet their needs.
The Co-lab team understands that the best ideas are realised when people communicate and collaborate. So, we ensure your project meets your requirements by working with you through the entire architectural process. This includes initial concept design through to contract administration and negotiating the town planning system.
1. CONCEPT DESIGN
More designers mean more ideas. At Co-lab architecture we always begin with a design workshop. An experienced team of architects and designers are brought together to produce an individualised response to each brief.
2. DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
We then draw on client feedback, measurements and council overlays to produce a series of drawings. These are detailed enough to be submitted for town planning approval if needed.
3. TOWN PLANNING
It is sometimes necessary to negotiate with the local council. We do this on behalf of the client, checking obligations and liaising with the assigned town planner to address objections and queries.
4. CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION
We then outline precisely how to build the project by developing detailed construction documentation. These are used to apply for a building permit.
5. CONTRACTOR SELECTION
To support our clients to reach a mutual agreement with a contractor we help them choose a provider and negotiate a contractor. We do this by sourcing quotes and comparing inclusions and exclusions.
6. CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION
For the duration of the construction process, we impartially assess variations and additional construction costs during regular site inspections. This ensures the contract and design specifications are being met.
