1.0 Project Analysis and Implementation Planning
Most construction projects move from the Design phase directly to Implementation. A far better practice is first to conduct a systematic Impact analysis of the proposed design and to confirm whether the vision of the client can be implemented successfully without unforeseen consequences.
At ARENCOS, we are supervising every stage of a construction project right from feasibility and planning to execution and completion. We possess a multidisciplinary pool of experts with knowledge and experience in design, engineering and construction processes, all of which are critical to ensure that the project goals are met.
2.0 Geology and Soil Mechanics
ARENCOS has broad-based knowledge in the fields of geology and the mechanical behaviour of soil such as its shear strength, compressibility and consolidation properties. Engineering geology, along with soil and rock mechanics are the cornerstones of our ground engineering methodologies.
This critical aspect, enables us to appreciate the impact of soil mechanics on geotechnical and foundation engineering design to deliver constructions with the highest degree of structural success.
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 Successful Alliance Partner Selection
Partner selection is always among the first steps we take in creating an effective and reliable collaboration and deliver a successful project. Our partners have a vast experience in the field of construction management, engineering excellence and architectural design as well as specialized in sustainable design and total architecture.
We are using a knowledge sharing approach, to create projects values, an effective understanding of the project requirements and a collaborative behaviour for a shared purpose.
6.0 Development Supervision
For ARENCOS, it’s always been a matter of commitment to decode the concept of the project owner into tangible results. To provide a project in compliance with the latest industrial and civil code standards, a continuous monitoring and supervision of the construction site is a mandatory prerequisite.
Moreover, putting in order the required processes and managing all the parameters (labour, materials, workforce, equipment, technologies, time and budget) of a construction project, is vitally important to enrich construction objectives with realistic outcomes and establish long term value for the project itself.
7.0 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.
