OUR FEATURED PROJECTS

OUR ADD-ON SERVICES

SOIL TEST

DIGITAL SURVEY

SITE VISIT

COST ESTIMATE

SOIL TEST:
Soil Testing is an important part of any building project. We provide soil tests as our add-on service. We never force our clients to take this service from us. Soil Test Reports from any reputed firms are accepted by us. As there are so many untrusty firms in this field, they do not conduct soil test work correctly. So, we suggest the client to engage such firms by consulting with us. Also, the work is under the close supervision of our engineers. We always try to understand the foundation soil accurately.

PROJECT SITE VISIT:

Before starting the design of a project, site visiting is a must. We consider this site visit as the start of work. Generally, our Design Architect and Structural Engineer do the primary site visit. We also provide site visits during construction. Our experienced Project Engineers conduct site visits at different stages of construction. In particular, they check the construction details as per the design. Project Engineers also check the quality of materials.

DIGITAL SURVEY:
Before starting any planning work, a Digital Land Survey is required. Proper use of space is quite difficult without a digital survey. Generally, we conduct digital surveys very soon after signing the contract agreement. It is also our add-on service. Landowners can hire any firm to conduct the digital survey. In this case, any errors in the digital survey report may affect the planning. We provide the best digital land survey support in Bangladesh.

COST ESTIMATE:
Knowing the construction cost is an important concern for the project owners. We always play with cost and benefits. We provide the item-wise cost estimates and bill of quantities. Generally, we break down the project into different parts during estimation. Firstly, the foundation cost. Secondly, the ground floor costs. Thirdly, the superstructure costs. Finally, the finishing costs. Also, provide a separate cost table on the detail cost estimate sheet. We also mention the material’s specification as much as possible.

HOW DO WE WORK?

1. Project Information Collection:

Generally, clients visit our office or call us over the phone. Then we try to find out their requirements. During the meeting or call, we try to know the plot size first. Then the road width, location of land, and ownership history etc. Most importantly, we ask to know the number of stories and type of project. We also try to understand the socio-economic conditions of the project area. Information collection is a very important part for us. It helps the overall efficiency of the total work.

2. Financial Proposals Submission:

After collecting project information, we prepared a detailed financial proposal. The proposal includes Scope of Works, Work Methodology, Terms and Conditions etc. A list of Deliverables, Timetable, Design Fees and Payment Methods are also included. We send the proposal through the client’s email or deliver the hard copy if required. Generally, consultancy fees vary in project to project. It depends on the volume of work, delivery time and type of project.

3. Negotiations and Review:

After getting a financial proposal, most of the clients want to go for negotiations. Generally, we arrange an online meeting for distant clients. Most importantly, a physical meeting for nearby ones. In this stage, the financial proposal may be revised or remain the same as before. We always try to create a win-win situation with clients. We are the top Architectural Firm in Dhaka, Bangladesh to serve with cost-effective design.

4. Contract Sign:

After negotiations, the next part is the contract agreement. If clients feel good working with us, we formally go for a contract. The total work process and payment schedules are finally revised. Most of the time, we invite the client to visit our office to sign the contact. We also visit the client’s places if required. We take signing money from clients at this stage. Generally, we make contact on our company letterhead or Stamp.

5. Project Site Visit:

Before starting any design work, we always try to visit the project sites. Generally, the project visit is done by a design architect or a structural Engineer. During site visits, they note down project features carefully. Except for any special cases, we do not charge for this visit. For regular land, we take hand measurements. But for irregular land, we always conduct a Digital Topographic Survey to get the exact shape of land.

6. Preparation of Primary Plan:

In this step, we made a primary plan for the project. We once again have a sitting with clients to get detailed information. In this stage, we note down the needs of the main gate, each floor, rooftop etc. The colors, materials, and construction process are counted. Finally, we prepare a Primary Plan and deliver it to the clients for review and feedback. We generally take a certain time to complete this process. Because there are so many options for thinking about the project.

7. Plan Review and Approval:

In this step, clients take time to review the primary plan and feedback. If any major corrections are required, we will further revise the plan. We always try to understand the user’s experiences and their emotions. If everything is alright and clients become satisfied, we get approval from them. Sometimes, we arrange a physical meeting to get the primary plan final. We never mind doing various revisions for any project. We are ready to work up to the mark.

8. 3D Views and Animation:

3D View is the most important part of the project design stage. This is the graphical and visual format of the design output. The client can visualize their future project through 3D views. Sometimes we prepare the project animation as per the client’s needs. We do 3D views from different angles to make it understood better. We also take the approval of the 3D views and animations from the client. This is an important stage for the clients. Because the project looks like it will be completed.

9. Detail Design:

In this stage, we go for detailed architectural design. Floor plans, cross-sections, elevations, and building utility layouts are covered in this stage. The structural analysis and design were also done in this stage. We use ETABs and STAAD Pro software for structural analysis. GEAR and SAFE for structural design. ASDIP for foundation design. Electrical and plumbing design is also done in this stage. We follow the Time Saver Standards for architectural design. BNBC-2020 and ACI318-14 codes for structural designs.

10. Final Design Review:

After completing all necessary designs, we called an in-house review meeting. This meeting is done with design architects and concerned engineers. Basically, we arranged an open discussion that covers everything about the design. Finally, we note down all meeting outcomes. The reviews and meeting outcomes are further implemented with every design segment. After our internal review, we call for a client’s meeting. Discuss every possible thing with them.

11. Design Print and Delivery:

The final design goes to design page setup. The designs are reviewed once again. Generally, we print the design book on A3 paper. In the case of large projects, we print them on A2 or A1 paper also. Finally, we deliver the printed design books to the clients. The design book is duly signed by authorized people of our company. We also deliver soft copies via email in PDF format. Generally, we deliver one hard copy. But can provide as many as required upon client’s request.

12. Cost Estimate and BoQ:

When all design work is completed, the next major issue is project cost. We estimate the whole project works in detail. Generally, we also prepare itemized cost data tables as per the PWD schedule. Present market rates are also taken besides of the PWD schedule. Most importantly, we prepare the itemized bill of quantity to supply to the building contractors. We deliver the bill of quantity and cost estimation data sheet in printed format. We have an in-house fulltime experienced estimator to conduct the work perfectly.

13. Project Top Supervision:

The project layout setting is the most important part of starting construction. Our project engineers are always ready to move to the project site. They confirm whether the layout setting is correct or not. They confirm it according to the design. We also have top supervision during construction. Generally, our Architects and Structural Engineers visit projects at different stages of work.

14. Support During Construction:

In this stage, the contractor or client needs some support from us. Our architects and engineers are always ready to consult with them. We request our valuable clients to call during office hours. So, that we can help you to the point. We also have 24/7 Live Chat support through our website. We assure to maintain 100% after-sales support.

Leading Building Design Company in Bangladesh

OUR DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS

1. Project Location:

Before starting design work, we try to find the exact location of the project. Different types of projects are feasible at different locations. We always try to guide our valued clients in location selection. It helps them to build the right type of building in the right place. We always try to visit the project location physically. We do site visits to assess the site conditions of the proposed land. Clients generally ask to know the feasibility of the proposed project. We thoroughly investigate the project and provide the report.

2. Project Type:

Knowing the project type is the very important part. We try to know the types of projects very first. Whether it is residential, commercial, or any other categories. Most importantly, we guide our valued clients in project type selection. We always try to build profitable projects for 2 reasons. Firstly, the project owner can benefit from their investments. Secondly, we can show built-in projects to our new clients. We always own the projects we design.

3. Road Width:

Road networks are vital lookout for any size of project. An open and easy road network increases the value of a project. In the case of plan approval from RAJUK or any other authority, a wider road is good. Because it includes an additional Floor Area Ratio (FAR) to the building. As a result, the project gets more floor area. This is how we make more profitable projects. Most of municipalities also consider the road width for building height approval. They allow the total building height to be equal to the road width and space left in front. So, for high-rise buildings’ permission, a wider road is required.

4. Earthquake Load:

Bangladesh is located in a severe earthquake vulnerable zone. In building design, seismic load consideration is a must. There are four different seismic zones in Bangladesh. Zone-1: Low Risk, Zone-2: Moderate Risk, Zone-3: Severe Risk and Zone-4: Very Severe Risk zone. We follow the BNBC-2020 guidelines to calculate the seismic load effects on buildings. We do dynamic analysis (Response Spectrum Analysis-RSA) to calculate earthquake loads. Also, we consider site class, seismic design category and modal response as seismic design parameters.

5. Wind Load:

Wind load is also a vital design load in buildings. We follow the latest building code of Bangladesh BNBC-2020 to calculate the wind load effect. There is a district wise basic wind speed map on BNBC. The map was built with a 3 second gust speed. The return period of this map is 50 years. We design building structures by considering the Main Wind-Force Resisting System (MWFRS). Exposure condition, soil type, gust effect are considered here. Wind directional factors and important factors are also considered. We always design a building which resists maximum wind effect. Although we are an Architectural Firm in Dhaka, Bangladesh, but we have full-time experienced Structural Engineers.

6. DAP Check:

We follow the latest Detailed Area Plan(DAP) Gazette in Dhaka City. It was published on 23rd August’2022. The new DAP has validity up to 2035. There are two types of Floor Area Ratio (FAR) in the new DAP. Firstly, the plot FAR and secondly, the area FAR. There are different types of land use in DAP. Urban Residential Zone, Commercial Zone, Industrial Zone, and Mixed-use Zone are notable. Also, there are some restricted zones. Where any type of building cannot be permitted to build. Water bodies, Floor Flow Zone, Overlay Zone, etc. are restricted zones. We always help the project owners to check DAP in free of cost.

7. Project Cost:

Project cost is a vital issue for any project planning. We tried to outline the estimated cost to the project owner. We do it before going through the final project planning. Also, we also provide item-wise project cost estimates.  We provide it at the end of the detailed design. It helps the owners to get a project loan. They can also control their material flow during construction. Also, help to reduce the wastage of construction materials. Our estimate can prevent the misuse of materials. Also, prevent unfair means of contractors.

8. Project Approval:

Any small or large projects, approval must be taken from required authorities. Projects in Dhaka City need permission from RAJUK. It takes 2 to 3 Months to get project approval from RAJUK. For Chittagong City needs from CDA. Projects in City Corporation areas need approval from them. We prepare the detailed project approval sheet. We supply it to the owner, duly signed by the Enlisted Architects and Engineers. Generally, municipalities can approve building plans up to 7 stories. Beyond 7 stories, the plan must be approved by the respective district Committee. 

9. Cost-Effective Design:

Cost is a major issue for any project. Project owners always look after lowering the total cost. It is a major duty of the designer to minimize the project cost. Project costs can be minimized in a number of ways. Firstly, doing rational analysis and design of the project. Secondly, optimum use of construction materials. Thirdly, use of locally available materials. We at SHELLMARK, try to deliver a cost-effective design solution. We use computer-aided analysis and design to reduce project costs.

10. Return on Investment:

Every project owner looks for the maximum return from their investment. This can be done in two ways. Firstly, proper project planning and design. Secondly, timely hand over the projects. These jobs reduce the breakeven of a project. We always try to deliver a detailed return on investment plan for our clients. So that they can easily get back their returns within the shortest time. We always try to shorten the Return on Investments in three ways. Firstly, by speeding up the construction period. Secondly, cost-effective design concepts. Thirdly, using available local materials in construction.

11. Exterior Beauty:

We always believe in the luxurious exterior beauty. It helps to get potential customers. Our project exterior views and animation help the project owner to visualize their future projects. Even before construction started. We provide modern and good-looking design for all of our projects. Our 3D views include front, left, right, back, and birds’ eye views. We also provide more 3D views if required. It depends on the clients request and project demand. Once the project is built, nothing can be changed. So, this is the stage to look at how the future project will look like.

12. Project Features:

We always make a list to note down project features before starting any design work. Generally, we arrange several seats with project owners to do so. We also prepare and detail project requirements. We send it to the project owners and get approval of it.  The unit facilities, car parking, number of stories, number of basement floors, building utility, cross ventilation, privacy, safety, security, color themes, material use are covered in this stage. The rooftop management is covered in this part of the design. We always try to provide maximum building facilities and usability on limited resources.

13. Project Life Span:

Generally, a building has been designed for about 100 years. We design all the components of the building to ensure a long lifetime and durability. We consider the earthquake and wind load of a building. This prolongs the durability and lifetime of a building structure. We also consider the time-dependent effects like shrinkage, creep, fatigue etc. in design. Which leads to a structure to a longer lifespan. Also, the quality of construction is liable to building life. Project owners must ensure quality construction. We also have top supervision to ensure quality construction. 

14. Environment Friendly:

We consider the environmental impact of a project. We can make sure of it in different ways. Firstly, use of available local materials. Secondly, creation of green spaces in buildings. Thirdly, use of solar panels for energy saving. Finally, rainwater harvesting and wastewater management practice. We also set up sewerage treatment plants for some projects. Providing natural ventilation and lights is also nature-friendly practice. We also make the building super usable. Fire safety is also considered in design.

15. Setting the Trends:

We always follow the current trend of building design. We constantly do research on modern building design trends. SHELLMARK LIMITED is the Best Architectural Firm in Dhaka, Bangladesh to provide trendy design. We regularly update and reshuffle ourselves with the current trends of design philosophy. Also, we are gradually increasing our design capacity to handle any kind of project in Bangladesh. We try to do every better render to our new projects.
