Architecture & Interior Designing

Architecture is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art. Historical civilizations are often identified with their surviving architectural achievements.

For CITISEEK "Architecture" means:

  • The art and science of designing buildings and (some) non-building structures.
  • The style of design and method of construction of buildings and other physical structures.
  • Knowledge of art, science, technology and humanity.
  • The practice of the architect, where architecture means offering or rendering professional services in connection with the design and construction of buildings, or built environments.
  • The design activity of the architect, from the macro-level (urban design, landscape architecture) to the micro-level (construction details and furniture).

Architecture has to do with planning and designing form, space and ambience to reflect functional, technical, social, environmental and aesthetic considerations. It requires the creative manipulation and coordination of materials and technology, and of light and shadow. Often, conflicting requirements must be resolved. The practice of architecture also encompasses the pragmatic aspects of realizing buildings and structures, including scheduling, cost estimation and construction administration. Documentation produced by architects, typically drawings, plans and technical specifications, defines the structure and/or behaviour of a building or other kind of system that is to be or has been constructed.

CITISEEK has adopted the word "architecture" to describe niche designed interiors and exteriors.

 

TURNKEY PROJECTS: COMMERCIAL

The wheel of change continues to spin, not just in fashion but also in the world of civil construction and  development. With so much being spoken about class, quality construction has inevitably become yet another means of making a statement. Be it commercial or your personal space & interior design, the civil construction industry today is much more than aesthetics; it is about identity and CITISEEK is determined to exactly give you that!

Constructing & Designing your space can be quite a nightmare, if it involves coordinating with civil contractors, designers, different types of sub-contracting professionals like carpenters, painters, masons, aluminum and glass vendors, electricians, HVAC and MEP technicians, etc.

First and foremost, you have to find the right people who have the capability to understand and execute your design brief. Bringing them together to implement the design can be quite a task as one contractor cannot start his work before the other finishes and each one would have a slightly different opinion and take, on your design. At times, there are also differences between the contractors, which can have an impact on the overall quality of the output. It can also lead to overshooting of the budget allocated for the task.

Opting for integrated turnkey solutions construction companies ensures a single point of contact for civil constructions, exteriors & interiors, thereby, minimizing the risk of dealing with multiple suppliers. Turnkey, as the name suggests, incorporates end-to-end processes within a project by providing all the required services to design and build your interior space, by managing the project from the first point of contact, through to handing over of the keys. A bare-shell apartment/office space/greenfield site, is turned into a fully functional residence/office as per the client's requirements and handed over.

The solutions include but are not limited to, civil, interiors and modular furniture, HVAC, electrical services, networking, BMS services, carpentry works, plumbing and furniture. It would also include appropriate and quality sourcing of international products for clients. Single point sourcing for all the requirements help provide effective control and management during the course of any project.

In order to provide these services, it is essential that the team consists of professionals with technical know-how in the fields of architecture, engineering, interior designing and business development, with adequate experience in their respective areas of expertise. The success of any turnkey project largely depends on the experience and robustness of these professionals. It is also important to have a well-developed network of experienced project supervisors, civil, electrical and plumbing contractors, carpenters, fabricators, skilled laborers such as masons, stone masons, painters, welders, etc. An in-house capacity for manufacturing furniture helps in servicing clients effectively, with a quick turnaround time.

 

ADVANTAGES OF TURNKEY SOLUTIONS

One-stop solution: This is the biggest advantage of turnkey solutions for your civil construction & interiors. Right from understanding your design to sharing the blueprint; from procurement of raw materials to manpower management; from maintaining high standards of quality control to delivering the finished project on time, turnkey solutions ensure professional expertise with no coordination hassles and different contractors for each job. This also makes the payment process much easier, apart from escaping the turmoil of explaining your design to each contractor and hoping that all of it comes together in the end result.

 

TIMELY DELIVERY:

Turnkey projects generally do not overshoot the timeline as a master plan is created at the onset of every project to ensure systematic implementation. This master plan aids in effective labour and material management. Since all the details are finalized at the very beginning with the client, there is no need of awaiting approvals at every stage.

 

NO OVERSHOOTING OF BUDGET:

Since all the design details and material specifications are finalized prior to the execution and the quote is shared with the client beforehand, there are fewer chances of the budgets overshooting. Changes in design and material suggested by clients during the course of the execution, can lead to an increase in price. Turnkey projects are also highly cost-effective due to the speedy completion of projects and pre-fixed rates with vendors and contractors.

 

UNDERSTANDING YOUR DESIGN NEEDS:

Due to a single-point contact, turnkey solution providers understand your brief better and are also in a good position to execute the same. It is important that commercial spaces combine the ergonomic, functional and aesthetic components that contribute to a productive work environment whereas residential spaces need to be comfortable, functional, aesthetically smart and above all, exclusively yours, expressing your lifestyle, aspirations and your own persona. The concept of turnkey solutions in interiors has been there in the India for some time now. However, it has picked up pace in the recent years. In the past three to four years, the Indian market has seen a substantial growth of turnkey solutions in interiors. However, the residential market for this concept is still at a nascent stage. The process in residences is much quicker in terms of the churning out of designs as the response time is less. In India, the market trend today is towards turnkey solutions in terms of civil constructions & interiors too.

HVAC

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) is the technology of indoor and vehicular environmental comfort. Its goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. HVAC system design is a sub discipline of mechanical engineering, based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. Refrigeration is sometimes added to the field's abbreviation as HVAC&R or HVACR, or ventilating is dropped as in HACR (such as the designation of HACR-rated circuit breakers).

HVAC is an important part of residential structures such as single family homes, apartment buildings, hotels and senior living facilities, medium to large industrial and office buildings such as skyscrapers and hospitals, onboard vessels, and in marine environments, where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated with respect to temperature and humidity, using fresh air from outdoors.

Ventilating or ventilation (the V in HVAC) is the process of exchanging or replacing air in any space to provide high indoor air quality which involves temperature control, oxygen replenishment, and removal of moisture, odours, smoke, heat, dust, airborne bacteria, carbon dioxide, and other gases. Ventilation removes unpleasant smells and excessive moisture, introduces outside air, keeps interior building air circulating, and prevents stagnation of the interior air.

Ventilation includes both the exchange of air to the outside as well as circulation of air within the building. It is one of the most important factors for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in buildings. Methods for ventilating a building may be divided into mechanical/forced and natural types.
