Vastu shastra (vāstu śāstra, also vastu veda and vastuvidya, "science of construction", "architecture") is an ancient doctrine which consists of precepts born out of a traditional view on how the laws of nature affect human dwellings. The designs are based on directional alignments. It is primarily applied in Hindu architecture, especially for Hindu temples, although it covers other domains, including vehicles, vessels, furniture, sculpture, etc. The foundation of Vastu is traditionally ascribed to the mythical sage Mamuni Mayan (Mahaa-muni Maya, a daanava/demon reformed by tapasyaa/austerities) in South and Vishvakarman in North India.
Our Projects range from small domestic works to large commercial buildings in contemporary, traditional and acient styles.
We offer a free initial consultation, during which we will begin to formulate a brief based on your requirements and produce initial sketch options on larger projects. We then produce an appraisal document that includes the initial sketch options together with our fee proposal and appointment document. We then proceed with the Planning Application.
An Application to Building Control is made, after which we initiate the production of tender documentation, with finalised technical drawings and a detailed NBS specification.
Once the contractor is appointed, contracts are signed the project starts on site. At this time as we act as contract administrators, making periodic visits to site to inspect the progress of the work to verify it is being constructed in accordance with the contract documents. We answer queries as they arise, issue instructions and certify contractor valuations, and if necessary reject unsatisfactory work on the way to completion of the project.
