ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN & CONSTRUCTIONS

1. DESIGN of PRIVATE BUILDINGS

In the field of architectural design we are able, with our experience, to produce high quality architectural designs for private building projects. We can offer the complete package combining design and all building permits. In full cooperation with the owner we approach multiple options and finalize the optimal solution. We can also look at the investment potential of your property and suggest reliable possibilities.

2. BUILDING DESIGN OF THE PUBLIC SECTOR AND ALSO MUNICIPAL AUTHORITIES
For the building projects of the public sector there is a great deal of experience. This feature includes all project sizes, small, medium, large and very large scale. We provide consulting services as technical advisor for all needs and phases of each project.

3. RENOVATION OF HISTORICAL preservable BUILDINGS

Our highly significant international experience in the rehabilitation of listed buildings combined with our experience in the field, is in line with the modern economic development spirit. Our own experience in this field is based on deep insight. Our aim is to solve the technical problem and by the same time to highlight the historical value. Achieving this way the exploitation of the property with financial return.

4. REVITALIZATION OF HISTORICAL SETTLEMENTS & URBAN CENTRES  
The emergence and restoration of historical and residential complexes is an international practice applied by modern states to preserve and display their historical wealth not only as a cultural asset but also as a financial product of the tourism sector and beyond. Our experience is made available to interested parties for specialized studies in this sensitive area. We have been awarded and honored internationally by the UN and the International Association of Architects (UIA) in 1996 for the redevelopment of the city center of Heraklion, Crete.

5. STUDY OF HOUSEHOLD RECONSTRUCTION OF TRADITIONAL SETTLEMENTS
Our country has many traditional settlements. Several of them are in a state of abandonment. With specific reconstruction studies, we can prepare architectural, urban and techno-economic proposals to enable Municipalities or Communities, even other private funding bodies, to perceive the subject even as a product of economic development beyond its social content.

6. STUDIES FOR NEW MUSEUMS 
From our experience, we have noticed that very often Municipalities and Communities that own some important properties that can be converted into museums, find it difficult or are discouraged about the museum’s design approach (for many different reasons). We can, together with the exploitation proposals (but also separately), develop high quality museological studies according to international standards and practice. We have references for such projects. "The Beech Museum" in Anogia, Crete (implemented) and "The Avgotarouchos Museum" in Aetolikos (not realized as yet).

7. ARCHITECTURAL STUDIES FOR CONTRACTING COMPANIES ABROAD
With our many years of experience in architectural studies in Greece and abroad, we are pleased to be able to provide architectural services to Greek contractors operating abroad, both for the quotation stage for building projects answering to inquiries as well as other architectural technical consultancy services. Our design capabilities are for large and very large projects respecting highly demanding international standards. We offer very competitive prices for such projects. We also respond to cases where pioneering architectural proposals are being sought in the context of international cutting-edge economic competition for high-profile projects. The choice to operate as a Cooperative is part of our social profile.

8. URBAN STUDIES / ARCHITECTURE OF THE CITY
Modern tendency and practice in urban planning studies is the perception that City as a whole is an "Architectural object-product". As such must be considered and solved as an architectural work, both in its entity and also individually. In well developed countries (mainly with historical past) the concept of Town Planning has been replaced by the sense of ARCHITECTURE OF THE CITY. This means that even the individual subsets of the city require aesthetical intervention in combination with their respective logistic environment. 

9. CONSTRUCTION (WORKSHOPS) & SUPERVISION OF PRIVATE PROJECTS
Construction, contracting and supervision of private works is our daily practice. We can offer services that guarantee the correct and proper execution of the studies. We undertake "turn-key" projects of private interest.

10. CONSTRUCTION (CONTRACTS) & SUPERVISION OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT PROJECTS & TECHNICAL ADVISOR SERVICES
We also have the opportunity, under the current legislation, to undertake constructions, contracting and oversight of government and also municipalities’ projects.
As Technical Consultants, we undertake not only studies but also full project management at any stage of its construction.
