Building Survey:

SEECA has surveyed everything from roof decks to casinos for our clients.    Our team will come into a project and accurately hand survey and create an as built Rev-it model of your space.

Interior Fit Outs:

Looking to renovate an existing space? Let our architectural team space plan and design your new office building, restaurant, or condo building. We will get you through all permitting as well.

Master Planning & Site Development:

Looking beyond individual buildings, SEECA helps tenants design spaces for the public. Connecting people and buildings with a sustainable outlook allows our designs to encourage social interaction and life.

New Construction Permits:

Our team of licensed architects and designers will take your project through the permitting process in any major city or town. From understanding the design to shovel ready permits, our team can help.

Zoning Drawings:

Our team of licensed architects and designers will take your project   through the permitting process in any major city or town. From     understanding the design to shovel ready permits, our team can help.

Construction Documents:

When it is time to detail, our architects and design team will draft how every nut and bold go together within your project. We sign and seal them, and send them out the door!

Constitution Administration:

During the construction of your project, our licensed architects will assist with (RFI) sketches, and building questions. We do regular site visits to the construction site to observe and report to ensure proper design execution.
Interior  Design Services We are dealing with all kinds of building interior & exterior design services which include Residential,Commercial & Industrial Projects.

Step 1: Project Analysis and Client Consultation:

During the analysis phase, the client's needs and objectives are identified. Questions regarding the specific function(s) of the space, who will be using the space and furniture and equipment requirements will be discussed. For renovations, existing measurements, photos, and floor-plans if applicable will be taken prior to or during this time.  A basic bubble-diagram helps us identify how the interior spaces should work together from a plan standpoint.  We want to make sure all of the necessary spaces are identified prior to starting the schematic design process.

Step 2: Schematic Design:

During the schematic design phase, space planning, furniture layouts, and color palettes are developed. Circulation patterns and clearances are considered and applied to the updated floor plan.

Space planning:

It starts with an in-depth analysis of how space is to be used when defining the circulation patterns that show how people will move through the area and will be finished by adding details of all the furniture, equipment and hardware placement.

Furniture layout:

Considering how the room is used and how many people will use it will dictate the type of furnishings needed and the amount of seating required. We will identify the room’s focal point - a fireplace, view, television etc. - and orient the furniture accordingly.  The largest pieces of furniture should be placed first, such as the sofa in the living room or the bed in the bedroom. In most cases, this piece should face the room’s focal point.

Color palettes:

Identify key materials to form a foundation for your palette. Consider items such as flooring that runs through the main areas of your home, a trim color to use throughout the house, and any other elements you’d like to use on a recurring basis.  Build off your initial palette selections to add interest while balancing contrast, texture, pattern, and color.

Step 3: Design Development:

After final approval of the schematic design, the designer develops floor plans, elevations, and other related items in greater detail. Colors and finishes are refined, furniture, fabrics, and equipment are selected and cost estimates are prepared. The resulting design is presented to the client for review, revision and final approval.

Step 4: Specifications and Drawings:

Once the design concept is complete, we’ll begin working to assemble specifications and schedules that provide clear instructions to the architect and builder. We then present you with additional materials to support our schemes through presentations that include renderings and 3-D models.

Step 5: Order and Installation:

Cohesive coordination with showrooms and vendors from purchasing to the installation. We oversee the placement of rugs, furniture, window treatments, art, and accessories. Our involvement continues even after the installation as we always work to accommodate our client's ongoing needs.
Building Sustainability

A SEECA sustainable building is a building that can maintain or improve:

the quality of life and harmonize within the local climate, tradition, culture,the environment in the region, conserve energy, resources and recycling materials, reduce the amount hazardous substances to which human and other organisms are (or may be) exposed and the local and global ecosystem throughout the entire building life-cycle

Definitions of Seeca building on the Web:

A sustainable building, or SEECA building is an outcome of a design philosophy which focuses on increasing the efficiency of resource use — energy, water, and materials — while reducing building impacts on human health and the environment during the building's life-cycle, through better siting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal. Though SEECA building is interpreted in many different ways, a common view is that they should be designed and operated to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by (a) Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources, (b) Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity, and (c) Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation. A building designed to be ecologically correct by using resources efficiently, using internal recycling, renewable energy sources, recyclable or biodegradable construction materials, and blending in with the local environment, particularly in out-of-town locations. The aims are to reduce to a minimum the environmental impact, and to take human health factors into consideration. A comprehensive process of design and construction that employs techniques to minimize adverse environmental impacts and reduce the energy consumption of a building, while contributing to the health and productivity of its occupants. A movement in architectural and building circles aimed at creating structures that are occupant and environmentally friendly. Criteria such as sustainability, energy efficiency and healthfulness are considered. Green or sustainable building is the practice of creating healthier and more resource-efficient models of construction, renovation, operation, maintenance, and demolition.
Smart Building Tech We are reaching a new age when it comes to building construction. No longer is it simply enough for our homes and offices to provide shelter and keep us warm. Today, thanks to the evolution of technology, it’s possible to not only deliver all the services that occupants need but this can be done while making the building as efficient as possible, minimizing costs and reducing the environmental impact of the building over its life. This is a balance that will be key to business going forward. The age of the smart building is here.

What is a smart building?

At its most basic, a smart building is one that is using technology to share information about what goes on in the building between systems so as to optimize the building’s performance. This information is then used to automate various processes, from heating and ventilation to air conditioning and security. Building overheads are a significant cost for any building owner/user. However, while these are a necessary business expense, the level of spend is often wasteful because it’s not intelligently applied. So, lights may be on in unused rooms or spaces heated when there are no people around to enjoy the warmth. The main motivation behind the smart building is to avoid this kind of wasteful use of energy and resources, both to cut cost and to improve energy efficiency.

The main features of smart buildings:

Systems are connected The most fundamental feature of a smart building is that the core systems within it are linked. So, water meters, pumps, fire alarms, power, lighting etc are all connected. This is what makes a building “smart” – the ability of the systems within it to talk to one another.

The use of sensors:

Sensors are an integral part of smart buildings and play an important role in collecting data to inform decisions about where to allocate resources. So, for example, footfall counters may be integrated into the building to provide information on where people are at certain times of the day and which areas are high traffic.

Automation:

Information is gathered and analysed by the systems that have been put in place in a smart building – importantly, this is done constantly and in real time. This ongoing monitoring allows for automated adjustments that can control conditions across an entire building.

Data:

Smart buildings generate a large volume of valuable data about their own use, which is something that regular buildings simply don’t do.

Smart building examples:

To show how smart building features can be utilized in the real-word, the National Grid demonstrates how sensors were used to provide reports on occupancy levels. This allowed them to measure usage and capacity throughout the building, and helped support a smarter work space strategy. The University of Technology, Sydney, utilized automated smart building technology within the education sector to synchronize control of the air-conditioning with a room booking platform. This helped to save significant business costs as the air con only had to be activated when the room was in use.

The benefits of smart buildings:

They make the occupants more productive Air quality, physical comfort, security, sanitation, lighting and even room and space availability can all be delivered at an optimum level to enable occupants to perform well.

Reducing energy consumption

Smart buildings are greener, more energy efficient and more cost effective.

The end of guesswork:

The use of sensors and cameras provides precise data on how the building is being used, which can be converted into insightful decision making. Space utilization can be improved based on actual data, as the building generates actionable, living intelligence automatically.

Significant operational savings:

This includes the savings that can be made in terms of everyday spend and maintenance on equipment. It also extends to the potential savings that are offered by identifying underutilized resources and the potential for growth into unused spaces.

Data protection:

Equipment, such as thermal sensors, measures data without using identifiable images of staff or the public. There are many benefits to implementing smart systems within a building, from cost efficiency to improving the environmentally friendly credentials of the construction. Smart buildings are relatively new today but, given the wide range of benefits that they offer, will soon become the norm.
