Frequent Asked Questions

  • What is the BIM working methodology?

    Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a collaborative working methodology applied to construction.

    This work methodology involves the development of a three-dimensional digital model that simulates the real work, allowing to detect and correct in advance any errors that would otherwise only be detected on site.

    This working methodology is, in part, one of the reasons for the recognized technical quality of the projects we are developing and practically an absence of errors during the construction process.

    CONCEPSYS is a specialist in this field in Portugal and has an independent BIM development and consulting department.

  • What are the typical phases of a project?

    According to document "Working with an Architect" provided by the Order of Architects:


    Phase 1 - Preliminary Program Definition / Fees Submission

    The phase in which the Client and the Architect discuss what will be designed, for example, how many bedrooms, living rooms and other programmatic requirements, as well as budgetary constraints.

    The current legal constraints and plans, such as the PDM (Municipal Master Plan), are analyzed. It is also at this stage that the elaboration deadlines are discussed. of the project, constitution of the project team and other constraints of the same. In parallel, the Architect submits an Honorary Proposal and a written Contract is signed. The Client must deliver, at this stage, the complete Topographic and / or Geological Survey, as well as, if applicable, the existing Architectural Survey.


    Phase 2 - Preliminary Study

    It is at this stage that the Architect develops the preliminary concept of the Project, as agreed in the previous phase. Usually, it consists of presenting drawings at different scales. Some Architects also present models of study and / or three-dimensional simulations of the proposal, in order to facilitate the understanding of the same by the Client. It is at this stage that the development of the Specialty Projects begins, under the direct coordination of the Architect.


    Phase 3 - Base Project / License Application

    The phase where the Architect develops the Project in accordance with the previous phase, preparing the approval process by the respective City Council, as well as by the other entities involved in the Licensing of the same, before which the Architect is the technical responsible of the project. Architecture project. At the same time as or after the Architecture Project Licensing, the remaining Specialty Projects required for approval will be delivered.


    Phase 4 - Execution Project / Measurements and Budget

    Following the approval by the City Council and other entities of the various Projects (Architecture and Specialties), the Architect prepares the Execution Project, presented in the form of written and drawn pieces, easily interpreted by the various actors in the materialization and specifying all the works necessary for the execution of the work (for example, construction processes, materials, carpentry, etc.). At the same time, the Measurement and Budgeting process begins, where all the quantities of materials to be used, types of work and way of execution are discriminated, so that the value of the work can be gauged. It is from these two documents - Execution Project and Measurements and Budget - that the Specifications are prepared, a written document that specifies the general and special technical conditions of construction and binds the Contractor. other conditions of the work.


    Phase 5 - Contractor Selection

    It is at this stage that the Client selects the contractor. The Architect will be able to collaborate with the Client at this stage, assisting him in the analysis of the technical capacity of the various candidates, as well as in the analysis of the price and deadline for the completion of the work. It should be taken into account that Price is not always a determining factor in the award, but the combination of a wide range of factors. It is also at this stage that the technician who will be responsible to the City Council, by the Technical Directorate of Work, is chosen. This is always appointed by the developer (Client) and may be a technician belonging to the technical staff of the construction company, or any other person the developer may choose to, including the author of the project.


    Phase 6 - Technical Assistance to Execution of the Work

    This is the phase of materialization of all the work done so far. Certification that your Project is fulfilled is an obligation and a duty of the Architect. At this stage, the role of the architect may include clarifying doubts of interpretation, providing additional information to the project he has prepared, assisting the developer in checking the quality of materials and the execution of the work, which does not mean that it be obliged to accompany the work. Such a situation should be the subject of contract between the parties, but certainty that it is always advantageous for the Client to contract it. The Architect, as author of the Project, cannot supervise his work.

  • Do you also develop specialty projects?

    In the context of an architectural project, we usually and prefer to develop well-matched specialty projects as well. We do this with competent technicians with whom we are used to working and thus guarantee you a single interlocutor for all projects on site.

  • Do you specialize in any project area?

    We have experience in different areas of design. This varied experience is essential to drive innovation, even when dealing with very specific project typologies.

    Nowadays concepts are increasingly open and undefined. A cultural space can add a restoration function. A dwelling can be aimed at a tourist purpose. A senior residence can add tourism with health and wellbeing.

    In this sense, despite the experience we have in specific project areas and integrating very specialized technicians in the team whenever the specificity of a project requires it, we approach the projects with a broad and unprejudiced view.
