ARKit is a specialist practice creating architecturally designed prefabricated additions, renovations and new homes.
Our projects are high quality, handcrafted and custom designed.
Melbourne Design Studio
Our projects are individually created in our Melbourne design studio and workshop by our team of in house architects, designers, project managers and building professionals.
Modular & Panelised Building Systems
Through the use of our modular and panelised building systems we are able to develop prefabricated building solutions to suit any type of design or residential application.
We are proud to be a leader in the design and fabrication of energy efficient buildings, designed to the Passive House standard.
Our process for design and delivery of residential projects combines a full scope architectural design service with construction delivery services. Our services include:
We undertake a preliminary assessment of your project requirements and provide you with an opinion of likely construction cost and a fee proposal for design services.
For more complex projects we undertake a detailed review of your site and/or specific project requirements. This may include structural checks for second story additions, assessment of authority requirements, review of access logistics or construction methodology.
During this stage we collaborate with you to develop a design brief for the project. We then explore various options to develop a site specific design response. We advise you of the external consultant requirements necessary to complete your project. We prepare a preliminary cost estimate based on your preferred design.
We work with you to identify and obtain necessary approvals required for your project.
We develop your preferred design to include internal and external elevations and work with you to select finishes, materials, fittings and fixtures. We prepare an updated cost estimate reflective of the developed design.
We prepare architectural documentation required for the building permit/ construction certificate and manage completion of project documentation by the broader project team including structural engineer, energy assessor, building surveyor and other professional consultants, as required.
We complete factory construction and site based building works as necessary to deliver your project.
