From the very start of a project we carefully listen to the wishes of the client and allocate the person within the office who best fits the task. To guarantee the best result this key-person, if needed, is supported by a team of motivated and passionate employees.
From the initiation stage to completion of a project Knevel Architecten takes on the role of sparring partner and listens, discusses, consults to provide smart solutions. Throughout the process Knevel Architecten has a scrupulous eye for detail and takes pride in its expertise to provide the most optimal results within the scope of the desires and possibilities given by the client. Furthermore the end result will also depend on the ambition and determination of the client.
Knevel Architecten takes on the role of the architect and urban designer and collaborates with developers, housing cooparatives and future owners/ end users/ inhabitants, for the realisation of developments which are directed at specific use, entailing the wishes of future users which are sustainable for developer and cooporations. The developement of projects therefore doesn't happen for the end users but together with the endusers. The process is therefore 'demand' driven rather than 'supply' driven. Ocassionally Knevel Architecten is willing to invest in project during initiation stage and thereby taken the nessecary finacial risks and sharing potential profits.
Knevel Architecten launches every assignment by clearly mapping out all the required and usable information. The core of the assignment is determined by a process of analysis and visualisation. In close consultation with the client the desired quality is decided upon and the starting points recorded in basic documentation. These starting points will then crystallise the principles which will guide the detailing and realisation of the project.
To ensure best practice when managing the project throughout its entire process, Knevel Architecten will appoint the most appropriate person with the required specialist knowledge and extensive experience to handle the project. This project manager will liaise closely with the client and with the other consultants. During the performance, the project team, as and when required, will be supported in the various phases of the process by making good use of the wealth of expertise available within the practice.
Knevel Architecten, in addition to safeguarding the starting points determined in the design phase, will pay particular attention to the detailing of architectural elements and management of the building process. Knevel Architecten also has extensive experience in the realisation of projects with construction teams.
