computer-generated imagery

Visuals are representations of design through images, animations or virtual reality systems. They are developed by 3D models, and they help understand the spatial qualities of the project in its context.

prefabricated construction in Anguix

The construction works for this multifunctional building designed by AQSO have recently started with the assemblage of modular concrete elements to be part of the structure and façade.

the philosophy of experimental design

Markets work in a simple manner: we design and build products that satisfy the demands of our society. In this age defined by the access to information, users are more aware of what they need and they want. Sustainability, flexibility and creation of value are common requests in any architectural brief these days. Experimentation is […]

quantity survey and cost plan

Quantity surveys are reports containing, broken down into sections, the list of items required to execute the works. Each of these items is called a “budget line”, which includes a measurement unit, and a description of the materials and labour required for the works.

selective tendering

The selective tender process for construction contracts is a pre-selection of suppliers to receive offers based on the project’s documentation and quantity survey if provided. An evaluation report is then presented to the developer to decide which contractor to appoint.

finishes

Finishes specification involves detailing a list of all the materials in the final parts of the project. The file contains commercial products available in the market following technical, functional, aesthetic, and economic criteria ‒ price and maintenance costs.

master planning

A master plan is a document detailing the technical framework within which a long-term intervention is to be developed.
