Project Management

Design & Submission by Icon Architects

We manage the building processes according to Principal Agent Duties as set out in JBCC Building Agreement.

iCON Architects believe that the design ends when the project is finished, we therefore offer a full service where we stay in the process throughout the building process. We issue the building contractor with detailed drawings where required as well as make any changes where the client requests revisions. This ensures that the client and building contractor are on the same page as to what is being built.
