PROJECT APPROACH

We specialise in providing bespoke planning solutions, based upon industry
standards, but subjected to rigorous thought and exploration, to ensure
every project exceeds the expectations of the end users and stakeholders.
Every problem is unique, every site different and every challenge presents
opportunity. At Latitude Architects we don’t come to your project armed with
ready-made solutions, oft-repeated on other sites. We don’t have a set of
formulas or templates that spit out a set of standard drawings at the push
of a button. We arrive at your site with new eyes, open ears and a
willingness to work closely with your team to find the right solution for
your organisation. At Latitude Architects we listen.

SERVICE DELIVERY

At Latitude Architects we are committed to forging strong, collaborative
relationships with our clients, which results in outcomes that both
challenge and exceed their expectations.

 

Good design solutions are the direct result of a comprehensive analysis of
the project constraints and opportunities understood in terms of cost,
formal response, functional effectiveness and environmental impact.
The directors of Latitude Architects would be working directly on your
projects, from start to finish. All design, documentation and administration
duties are undertaken by the people with the relevant experience and
expertise to complete your project on time and on budget. The people you
meet are the people who will follow through.
