We are committed to listening to the needs of our clients and to respond by providing our very best service.
We aim to meet our clients’ objectives within their time, budget and quality framework.
Architechno is fully aware of the fact that a project does not only consist of an architectural component, but that financial, social and environmental aspects play a major role in planning.
Whilst achieving the above we are also committed to the principles of upliftment of the previously disadvantaged sectors of our population by engaging in the training of black architects and technicians.
We therefore incorporate the following steps:
- Defining the particular requirements in close collaboration with the client and other parties involved.
- Formulating alternative solutions in terms of affordable standards;
- Implementing the selected solution within the constraints of available time and funds; and
- Monitoring the implemented solution and ensuring that it conforms to the clients’ expectations.
- Architechno therefore strives to provide service excellence, maintaining personal contact with the client and providing a support service after completion of the project.
Being a professional practice we are bound by the statutes and regulations of the South African Council for the Architectural Profession.
We can therefore call upon expertise in different fields and other consulting professional companies for support should it be a requirement structured in such a way that it would cater for our clients and their projects.
We have a fully fledged office consisting of trained draughting personnel, computers, computer aided draughting and 3D computer software, an A1 printer, A3 printers, AO copiers, A3 and A4 copiers, survey equipment, all terrain vehicles, office cars and an office building.
