Prompt service, effective cost control,
code-compliant drawings & design,
and competent project management!
From Owner's Concept to Completed Building
Macdonald Architecture & Technology PLC. uses advanced program and digital resources to provide high quality architectural design. We employ a 3-D Building Information Model (BIM), design program to fully develop all design data into a comprehensive 3-D digital model of your project.
Clients can view this model both through standard architectural drawings: plans, elevations, sections, and also through our real-time interactive 3-D Fly-through program. They can navigate through the 3-D model on their own computer or tablet. This 3-D presentation is a valuable asset in design decision making.
Comprehensive Cost Control
Macdonald Architecture & Technology PLC. is a full service designer. Our primary goal is to ensure that the construction documents serve the goals of our Client from all standpoints: appearance, efficiency, energy conservation, cost of construction, operation, and durability. In this regard we coordinate and provide all design services including:
- space planning
- site, playing field, traffic & landscaping design
- architectural design
- service design
Construction cost overruns and mistakes are often due to lack of communication between design professionals. We take great care to incorporate Client feedback into the drawings, and we provide a digital detailed cost analysis at an early stage to avoid delays and change orders due to cost issues.
We consult regularly during the design period with the code authority, engineers, and manufacturers of construction products, and with service trades such as electricians and plumbers to ensure that our documents conform to codes and to the best and most efficient construction practices.
We guarantee that our submission set will get a building permit. Many times, our permit submissions are approved without comment.
