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.

how we do it

All aardvarch team members have worked in the industry for over a decade. We understand that a smooth running project relies on clear communication and a defined scope. This brief overview shows our typical process, which helps to ensure projects run on time and on budget.

prior to starting, a detailed project process guide is provided to clearly define expectations for each milestone.
