Following the presentation of DIMSCALE's new consultancy service concept (a couple of months ago) we just added some new information to our website regarding ARCHITECTURE COST MANAGEMENT.
Throughout four brand new pages we tried to simplify the concept and present a set of easy-to-read texts which will certainly give a clearer idea of the scope and the benefits of this concept. Focused on optimising and controlling the costs of Architecture and Real Estate projects, ARCHITECTURE COST MANAGEMENT also seeks to safeguard the project's concept and final quality.
Besides the first page's introduction, the website presents also a more focused approach to each type of client/partner, giving detailed information of tailored services for Real Estate developers, Architecture offices and foreign investors that are looking for consultancy partners to develop projects in Portugal.
Led by Mies van der Rohe's famous quote "Less is More" we explain why it is important to identify the most crucial aspects of each project and to optimise/reduce the spent resources, in order to accomplish what will really bring out the project as a successful one, regarding its cost execution, architectural concept, quality and functionality.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe marked the XX century with an architecture that carried a vision of simplicity and clarity into his projects. A conceptual optimisation that became an icon of modern architecture and, properly adjusted to each specific context, can easily be applied to other fields. One of the major difficulties verifiable when managing projects related to Architecture and Real Estate is precisely to distinguish the essential from the accessory and to know precisely how to identify the components that will better bring out the concept of each project and the valences that will better contribute to its functionality. The absence of this perception and a specialised approach to the cost often affects the sustainability of projects, which can make their implementation unfeasible or bring unplanned costs during the implementation phases.
ARCHITECTURE COST MANAGEMENT seeks to optimise the available resources of each project, managing the balance between cost and value. To do this optimisation it is to accomplish with the project's goals with the minimum of resources, allowing the project to be sustainable. That's why it is true, also in this context, that "less is more".
