What can Burke Studio Architects do?

Burke Studio Architects (BSA) provide a range of services in connection with building projects. Every Project is different but each will require a range of the following Architectural Services:
  • Client Liaison : Burke Studio Architects work with the Client to establish a detailed Brief for the project. This clarifies for both Client and Architect the goals for the Project - what is required and how will it be achieved.

  • Scheme Design : Using the brief as a basis for the Project, Burke Studio Architects will develop a range of Architectural Solutions for the given scenario. These are produced with the site conditions, the Client's brief and importantly the budget in mind.

  • Planning Application : Should the Project require Planning Permission, Burke Studio Architects will prepare all documents and drawings required by the Local Authority for lodging of the Planning Application. BSA can advise on the requirements and necessity for a Planning Application as well as liaise with consultants on the issues of Fire Safety Certificate and Disability Access Certificate lodgements.

  • Tender : Burke Studio Architects can advise on the integration of renewable energy sources into a Project and Colm Burke is fully trained in the area of Building Energy Rating (BER). The necessary documents and drawings are compiled by BSA and issued to a range of Contractors for pricing for the Project.

  • Site Operations : BSA will manage all aspects of the Project on site, from the coordination of various Design Team members (QS, Engineers...) and their required input as well as acting as the Contract Administrator effectively positioned between the Client and the Contractor. As Project Managers for the Development, Burke Studio Architects have the unique role of having been involved in all stages of the Project from inception through to site completion, ensuring they have the requisite skill and experience to deliver a project on time and on brief as well as most importantly, On Budget.
