The RS Architecture and Design Studio provides creative, functional detailed – construction design for a wide variety of projects, including buildings, government facilities, landscapes and industrial. We give to our clients the design should dimensionally correct and co-ordinated, describing all the main components of the building and how they fit together. However, technical aspects of the design may require further development, we offer more design plans by fully incorporated into the detailed design.
Our Detailed – Construction design include:
Road layouts and landscape.

Outline specification including schedules of components, defining the performance and/or material standards required (including colours).
Elements of design that require specialist input or early choice of manufacturer. Designers should investigate suppliers certificates, warranties and compliance with standards.
Requirements for mock-ups, testing, samples or models necessary to satisfy performance or public relations requirements (including computer generated images).
