THE DESIGN PROCESS
At Motus, our design ethos is fundamental in our approach to design. In order to design ‘evocative spaces’ and provide ‘inspired solutions’ to our clients, quality of design must come first and foremost.
We are passionate about design and the importance of designing buildings that enhance the built environment and lives of end users.
CONCEPT / SCHEMATIC DESIGN
Includes exploratory investigations into site /climate/cultural factors and development of client brief. Ideas are explored and refined through drawings and models to adequately explain the proposed building concept to the client, or greater public. Ultimately, the goal being to transform a concept into project ready for a Development Application.
Includes development of the approved concept design in collaboration with input from specialist consultants and suppliers. Building finishes and systems are reviewed and refined to reflect the requirements of the brief and building budget.
Includes contruction drawings, construction specification, supplier schedules and coordination of specialist consultants to ensure building services and structure do not intrude or impact upon the architectural intent. Upon completion of this stage a full set of Construction Documents will be provided ready for Tender.
Includes inviting and assessing tenders, finalisation of building contract and ensuring the builder undertakes construction in accordance with the terms of that contract and the relevant Australian Standards / Building Codes. By having an Architect as Superintendent, it also ensures that builder shortcuts are avoided and the quality of workmanship provided is of an acceptable standard.
