Over the years Arquiteg has worked in collaborations with firms based locally and also in the mainland US, in Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, and Colombia, in order to competitively pursue and develop local and international projects. Among these project collaborations, Arquiteg has collaborated with firms like TVS architects, Gensler, Hillier, RMJM, Edge of Architecture (EoA) and Sanabria Arquitectos of Venezuela.
Arquiteg’s role on some of these projects has spanned from full design collaboration works, code review analysis, inspections, engineering coordination, and assisting clients/firm partners in the local permitting process when the other design teams are not locally based or not aware of the submission requirements.
The key to achieving efficient teamwork is good communication and organization skills between its members. The current demands of complex projects and the ongoing evolution of the different specialties that are involved in projects nowadays, has transformed the design development delivery methods into more collaborative teamwork solutions.

We are here to serve you as a one-stop-shop for your construction project.

We take your project anywhere from pre-design to construction administration and occupancy. We help bring life to your dreams.
Designing and constructing projects is no simple task. We know this because our clients frequently ask what the process is for designing and building an office, hospital, house, or whichever their interest is. The following three steps sum up the process taken during a typical architectural project: Pre-design, Design, and Construction.
It's usually the first step in the services we provide for our client. It starts with a client-architect meeting where we discuss and define your project, goals, requirements, budget, and more. These will help us understand what you want to achieve and how to get there. During this step we will offer you the ability to carry a green LEED project.
During this process, we understand the characteristics of the site provided or where we help the client chose a site for the project. A thorough site analysis is critical for the development of any successful project. In this step we study special site features such as topography, sun diagrams, surveys, water drainage, wind direction, code, existing structures and more.
We provide black and white drawings/design in order to start arranging all of your requirements and vision. The design will be presented in floor plan format and you will review and comment and we will provide an updated design with new recommendations. We will revise the drawings as many times as you need in order to meet all of your requirements. Once we meet your requirements, timeframe and budget, we move to the next step.
We develop your approved spatial floor plan concept design and we show you elevations, sections, and ceiling in order to obtain your comments and input. We provide material selection presentation where you get a chance to review floor materials, ceiling materials, and wall materials. We also update the schedule and the budget and request your approval before moving forward.
Construction instructions are the final set of documents that entail detailed plans, sections, blow-ups, and much more. This will aid the contractor in building your project. Our firm has a great reputation in creating complete drawings that will help ease the construction process. The more complete the drawings, the easier for the contractor and for yourself.
This is the part of the project where we select multiple builders, we provide them with the detailed construction instructions and requirements, and they provide us with a price for building your project. At this stage we select the most qualified builder with the lowest cost.
At this stage we will observe that the builder is following the construction instructions that you approved and that they meet your requirements. We also make sure that he is billing you correctly, confirm to the builder the materials that he is purchasing are accurate, manage unexpected circumstances, make sure the builder is following the schedule, and defend your interests until project is completed and you are satisfied with the results.
We stick around to understand your satisfaction, to make sure the systems are performing as expected and to solve any pending details that are left for later.
