we can do it all…
the way we work
aardvarch works effectively in different modes and can adapt to your unique requirements
These are 2 typical ways that aardvarch can assist your team…
taking the documentation lead
Our teams work together, with aardvarch leading the documentation. We take responsibility for the revit model and produce all the tender/ construction documentation on your behalf.
We work hand-in-hand with your project’s lead architect – who retains control of the overall project and the design – while we provide the documentation ‘muscle’ required to facilitate it all.
In this mode, we typically work from our office in Surry Hills, communicating daily and attending important meetings.
lending a hand
Our team within yours: aardvarchs are seconded to increase your capacity on larger projects where it may not be feasible for us to handle all the documentation.
We can either take responsibility for defined packages of work, or more simply second team aardvarch members into your office to bolster your team.
In this mode, we may work best installed within your office for part or all of a typical work week.
