Architectural design follows building codes, standards and regulations. The goal in architectural design is the creation of a complete solution of a building or a facility. The complete solution includes the location of the premises, linkage, interior design and the visual appearance of the building. Exterior solution is related to the way the building fits into the surrounding environment, considering the customer’s desires, the materials they would like to use and restrictions/prescriptions to the land/estate.
Architectural projects are prepared in cooperation with architects, clients and engineers from other departments, in collaboration with the local government.
A project’s preparation time, from planning to acquiring the building permit, for example, depends on the size of the property, location, the local government’s administrative capacity, and co-operation with other interested parties.
Composing a project requires a digital geodetic base plan 1: 500, and following the conditions set out on a property by a local authority.
