THE QKA SERVICES
Quattrocchi Kwok Architects has a reputation for providing not only the traditional services expected of an architect, but surpassing those services to insure your project best meets your needs. Our strength is our ability and enthusiasm in working with those who will use the facilities we design. Our emphasis on continuous communication is a critical component of our services.
Quattrocchi Kwok Architects experience includes numerous Master Plan and Feasibility Studies for single and multiple campus projects ranging from $500,000 to $150 million. These master plan efforts include evaluations of existing campuses where we determine the physical condition of buildings as well as site infrastructure. We worked with school districts evaluating their educational programs and matching those programs to existing facilities to determine building needs for modernizations and new facilities. We developed costs and funding targets and used this information to create schedules for cash flow and construction. These very useful master plans have yielded great success and each has been implemented.
At QKA a project’s successful completion is sheparded through construction by our Construction Administration department. This department of highly experienced staff is comprised of individuals with a trade background who not only hold construction credentials but also receive ongoing training.
