Mida Architecture is a London based practice working across the residential, commercial and hospitality sectors.
We work closely with our clients and partners throughout the RIBA stages to deliver projects that have enduring and recognisable value.
Our services are structured to ensure that each project is monitored along set milestones to ensure the best possible outcome for our domestic and developer clients.
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has outlined the key stages of work for any construction project. We use these stages as a framework for structuring our scope of services.
STAGE 1 / PREPARATION AND BRIEF
We prepare a brief for your project based on our first meeting and advise on the best way forward.The brief is important as it summarises all the aspects of the project that you would like to achieve.
STAGE 2+3 / OUTLINE DESIGN
We prepare design options and ideas based on your brief together with viability appraisals describing the commercial impact of each option. The proposals will include layout plans and precedent images to help present the design ideas, taking into account local planning legislation, relevant building control regulations and most importantly, your budget. We liaise with the authorities on your behalf to achieve the best possible outcome.
STAGE 4 / TECHNICAL DESIGN
After any approvals are granted, the technical details of the project are worked out and required consultants, such as structural engineers, are employed. At this stage, we can work with you to suggest products and manufacturers and collate all the products into a schedule for your builder.
STAGE 5 + 6 / CONSTRUCTION
We organise the tendering to several contractors and help you review the costs that come back. Once you have selected your contractor, we will manage the contract throughout the building process, organising payments and overseeing the programme and site works. This involves regular site visits and dealing with the day-to-day issues that arise on site. Following completion, we will make final inspections and advise on any rectification work required.
