NJ Architects guide clients through the technical design stages, discussing and developing appropriate methods of construction.
As part of this, we look at structural systems, materials and procurement procedures and provide fully coordinated technical design packages. These include general arrangement, drawings including detail on structure, building services and clash detection. Our staff have a diverse knowledge of construction, which includes classical detailing as well as modern and innovative low carbon technologies.
All of these stages are carried out to full technical standard – meeting the specifications of Building Regulations, BREEAM and Secured by Design.
With unrivalled experience in conservation and the preservation of historic buildings we also understand the importance of a holistic design with regards to sustainability and methodology.
With a traditional founding, we are often seen working at drawing boards, however we are also fully conversant with Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD and NBS Building software. Our technical abilities strongly complement our ability to lead the contractor tender processes and an analysis of tenders. We are able to administer building contracts and work with clients and contractors from contract implementation to project completion and handover. Packages might include traditional single stage tenders, but we also adopt two stage tender processes and can also advise on full management contracts, which are particular suited to fast track insurance recovery works.
