Apart from full Architectural Services KMD Architecture has in-house expertise and qualifications in Project Management, Interior Design, Health & Safety Regulations.
KMD Architecture is dedicated to quality of design, service and efficiency. We understand, through analysis, the important characteristics of a site and the client’s requirements. Our objective is to achieve not only the functional and budgetary needs of the client but also to fulfil our responsibilities as architects towards the occupants of the building and the receiving environment.
Investing time at the briefing stage is crucial to establish building population, space requirements, room user requirements, adjacency requirements, expansion etc. KMD Architecture then seeks to identify the company’s ethos. Current design solutions would be researched and completed projects visited, where feasible.
Subsequently preliminary sketch designs would be prepared showing options for the form and massing of the building on site and the disposition of the various elements. Following a detailed design review, a sketch design would be chosen and developed.
KMD Architecture embrace best practice in sustainability on all projects. Appropriate, low energy, sustainable design options are produced at the concept stage of projects. We engage with specialist consultants (particularly mechanical & electrical engineers) to test proposed design. Reference models such as BREEAM and LEED are utilised and, where required by the client, projects are certified.
