  • Before design begins

    PAAstudio offers systematic Pre-Design Services. You may want to find out if your planned development is feasible, or - can I afford what I want? How to phase it, if necessary? How to get the best for my money? All Pre-Design Services can be billed as part of the overall project contract or hourly, depending on the job specifics.

  • The project development

    The three classic phases of the design process are transformed into two with our full BIM capabilities. Schematic Design and Design Development blend pretty much together, since the overall 3D model of the building (Building Information Model = BIM) contains large amount of data from the start up.
