DESIGN & BUILD CONSTRUCTION
Design & Build is whereby a client enters into a single contract with one entity that is responsible for
Architectural & Structural Design
Architectural design contributes to the whole development of property. We develop interior architectural design concept and assist client in design & selection of building materials and products. Advice is given on structural aspects and stability for the existing houses which assist in initial design & planning.
A qualified person is engaged for endorsement & submission to authorities.
Interior Design & Carpentry Works
Upon preliminary discussion and finalization of design acceptable by client, 3D perspective overview drawings may be provided for client’s approval.

PROPERTY CONSULTANCY SERVICES
These services are provided to potential house owners with intention to purchase landed properties, namely detached, semi-detached and terrace houses for development.
We verify, check and confirm these items prior to house owner completing the sale and purchase documentation:
- Building Conditions

- Authority Requirements & Constraints
- Above and Underground Services
- Authorities Reserve Land or Line
- Construction Costs & Budgets

Buyer should take costing into consideration where seller proposed a selling price. This is to prevent buying negative cash flow property, whereby the buying price adding construction cost would total up to higher future selling price.

We selected two case studies for your review.
Owner A bought a large plot of land with intention to build a 3 storey semi-detached house.
Case Study 1
Upon analyzing the land area and requirements, we proposed building a pair of 3 storey semi-detached house and a smaller scale semi-detached house.
Our proposal is based on several factors:
Having a small family, it is unnecessary for A to spent time on maintenance. He becomes a developer by building additional semi-detached house and sells it. In turn, he earns himself a free semi-detached house for stay from the sales proceeds.
Case Study 2
Owner B bought a 2 storey corner terrace house with intention to extend rear yard and add in an attic. Prior to purchase, a builder offers B a dream house with fantastic design although he has limited funds. Upon submission and tender exercise, the construction costs ballooned to over 50% above his initial budget. He is unable to bear the cost although design was to his liking.
We studied the design and proposal. In our opinion, the structural systems were overly design and materials to be used is upper class range. We proposed to replace the structural systems with alternative lightweight design and affordable but equivalent materials. We made changes to suit existing structural layout, avoiding any removal of structural where higher costs would be involved. With slight changes on the layout and facade aesthetic, the house was completed within owner’s comfortable budget.
