1.0 Research and Analysis
At ARENCOS we interact and operate as architects, designers and thinkers who value the transformative role of architecture to inspire. We are using adaptive architectural methodologies to conduct a dedicated research on the vision of our clients.
Next, we holistically analyse the aesthetic identity of the construction and site characteristics to lay the foundations of an exceptional architectural design.
2.0 DATA COLLECTION & MATERIAL SELECTION
Any architectural project requires a significant number of materials, assemblies and systems. At ARENCOS we collect, research and analyse several data from the latest state-of-the-art insulation materials to the most efficient structural elements.
Selecting and specifying the appropriate materials that form the essence of the built environment is a key factor in the success of our architectural projects to establish visual appeal, quality and structural reliability.
3.0 Perception and Materials Relevance Analysis
It is not just the structural importance, constructional behaviour and the visual impact but also the historical value along with the practicality of certain materials that form the essence of the built environment.
Our teams implement an integrated approach to assess the perception of any building material and its role in the construction, its principles, reliability and the techniques of dealing with it for enhancing its properties.
4.0 Design Optimization
Architectural design optimization (ADO) is an important aspect of our services. We are using a novel and applicable optimization method to study, support, and solve architectural design problems, such as optimal floorplan layout design, extensibility, evolvability, maintainability of materials used, and the like.
At ARENCOS design optimization is used to create objects, performances, and experiences and establish a perfect combination between aesthetic and functionality.
5.0 Sustainable Design
Arriving at sustainable design for any construction is a continuous process. We are not just assessing which proposal or material is particularly noticeable in the context of the intellectual and ecological revolution of the building itself.
We also provide inclusive services in energy saving and sustainable building design, focusing primarily on climate analysis, the implementation of building-integrated energy systems, the integration of renewable technologies, the adaption of natural building materials and ecological construction methods.
6.0 Focus on Saving Design
A holistic preparation in sustainable development and the accurate perception of the materials and methods used lay the foundation for excellence. At ARENCOS we insist on saving design and resource conservation of buildings to improve buildings utilization efficiency and make efficient use of construction resources.
To achieve a design saving philosophy, we adhere to a new mode of construction approach and management. Our architectural design proposals are based on low consumption construction resources forming a high efficiency, low energy consumption building development model.
7.0 BIM (Building Modelling Information)
Our practice has adopted BIM (Building Modelling Information) technology since its inception, embracing the benefits of early design integration, management, and coordination.
However, at ARENCOS, BIM is a process, not just a model. BIM is a way of working and interacting. We are using BIM to facilitate knowledge sharing, identify and mitigate critical project issues before construction and keep the budget under control.
The handover of your project is folowed by our PMDE folder:
Project Management & Delivery Excelence
What is PMDE? It’s not just an acronym for Project Management & Delivery Excellence in constructions.
It is a detailed Peer-Review Report which adapts a materialist post-structuralist view about construction’s identity for the project owner. Moreover, it encloses all the building construction parameters, roles and responsibilities of the persons involved in the project as well as the information related to its quality, operation, sustainability, energy efficiency and functional characteristics.
The aim of our PMDE approach is to achieve excellence throughout the project life-cycle and establish a compliance with the principles of quality, time and cost in constructions.
