Services

Design For Seasons offers a comprehensive design and documentation service with an emphasis on passive solar and sustainable building design principles. Design For Seasons also offers tender negotiations with builders and contract administration or site supervision during the construction stage.

A building construction service is also available for those clients who want a complete design and construction service. This complete design and construction service ensures the house is built as designed and detailed to meet the required levels of sustainability, energy efficiency and aesthetics.

Designs are based on the client´s vision and needs, always relating to the human scale and spirit. A detailed and carefully staged approach is taken during the design and documentation process.

These stages include:

  • A site visit, assessment and recommendations
  • Design interview and design brief
  • Concept sketches and elevations and a preliminary opinion of cost;
  • Design development drawings, a fixtures and fittings schedule and an estimated cost to build.
  • A full set of architectural working drawings, specification and consultants drawings.

Passive solar design is the primary focus and philosophy of the design service.

Other sustainable issues are also considered such as:

  • Site impact and scale of the building
  • Use of sustainable building materials
  • Water conservation and collection
  • Grey water recycling
  • Renewable energy sources
  • Energy use for heating and cooling, hot water service and lighting.

Clients are encouraged to monitor the performance of the building and offer any feedback after living in the building. In fact most clients have become friends and “committed to solar design.”
