Building survey

Comprehensive On-Site Building Surveys with Plan Processing and Survey Plan Preparation.

Conducting building surveys is essential when expanding existing buildings, converting attics, applying for a building permit for existing structures, and creating demolition plans. Survey plans are also necessary even if there is existing plan documentation for the building, as during construction and potential prior renovations, it is common for the actual condition of the building to not always reflect the state shown in earlier plans.


The comprehensive design of buildings from the initial phase to the completion of construction involves several stages and services.

  • Sketch Plan: This initial stage involves rough sketches and concept ideas to outline the project's potential design and layout.

  • Feasibility Study: A feasibility study assesses the practicality and viability of the project, taking into account factors such as budget, site conditions, and local regulations.

  • Simple Declaration-Bound Plan: This stage involves preparing a basic plan that may be required for regulatory or zoning purposes.

  • Building Permit Plan: This detailed plan is essential for obtaining the necessary permits and approvals from local authorities.

  • Execution Plan: The execution plan provides comprehensive and technical details necessary for construction. It includes architectural, structural, and MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) plans.

  • Tender Plan: This plan is used for the tendering process, where contractors submit their bids to undertake the construction work.

  • Implementation Plan: Once a contractor is selected, the implementation plan guides the construction process with detailed instructions and specifications.

  • Marketing Plan: A marketing plan may be developed to promote the project, attract potential buyers or investors, and generate interest in the property.

  • Consultation: Throughout the process, ongoing consultations are essential to ensure that the project aligns with the client's needs and expectations.

Before commencing work, a phone consultation takes place to discuss the project's scope. Site data is collected for precise identification. Subsequently, a face-to-face consultation is scheduled to assess requirements, finalize the design program, and establish project goals. Based on this program, an initial cost estimate is prepared to provide an approximate project cost. Following this, a design fee calculation and a cost estimate are prepared based on the design program and project cost. Once the cost estimate is accepted, the design phase can begin.

The design process usually starts with a few in-person consultations, with additional consultations occurring throughout the design process as needed. The frequency of consultations is determined through individual agreement and depends on the nature of the project. If building surveys or site visits are necessary, they are conducted at this stage.

Design supervision

During the construction phase, it is possible to request designer's site supervision, which includes a minimum of six site visits. These visits are aimed at addressing any questions and issues that arise during the construction process.

Energy certification

The calculation of building energy requirements and the creation of an energy certificate is a necessary step in the construction of new buildings, as well as when selling or leasing existing buildings or independent functional units, and for publicly used buildings owned by the state with a usable floor area exceeding 500 square meters.

Having the authority to issue energy certificates allows for the development of the building's energy concept from the initial design phase. This contributes to the sensible, cost-effective, and environmentally conscious use of energy resources during the building's operation, resulting in reduced future operating costs and environmental impact
