GK Architects is a dynamic company specialising in high-end, luxury residential and commercial sectors, focusing on delivering outstanding designs, maximising the potential of existing and new buildings. In the effort to speed up the overall design and construction process, GK Architects are able to offer the One Stop Shop for Professional Services.
We regularly work with well established Structural Engineers, Planning Consultants, CDM Co-ordinators and Surveyors.
With every project being different and we provide tailored service for every client, be-it help with a planning application or a full construction project.
Architect Led design and build
For the clients looking for the highest quality build project and peace of mind we offer an Architect Led Design and Build service.
The combined supply chain of services approach offers clear advantages. Clients can decide to engage our design and build service as the single source entity at the start of a project and exclusively providing the design and construction. In this scenario we take the role of designer, project manager, and main contractor / builder. This approach gives the client the benefit of having a single point of contact regarding all aspects of the design and construction process. Design and build services are sometimes offered by developers. However in a profit driven environment, there may be less focus on the quality but profit gain. Having an Architect in charge, gives the client reassurance that finished quality and design standards are of paramount importance.
The main advantages of Architect Led Design and Build project delivery are:
• Single point of responsibility and more direct communication and fewer involved parties
• During earlier stages more accurate budgeting and cost control
• Earlier and more accurate scheduling and shortened design and construction time
• Reduced chance of claims or litigation due to the team-based collaboration with a non-confrontational relationship between architects and contractors
• Design intent is better represented due to the continuity throughout the design and construction stages
• High level of quality control with the architect in charge of the construction while representing the owner’s interests
• Complete integration of design, construction and technical infrastructure.
GK Architects and MG Professional
We are pleased to have worked with MG Professional Ltd on many construction projects throughout London. They have consistently delivered projects on time and to excellent standards of workmanship.
