OFFICE OPERATIONS

 

The office of L’Architecte Arciero was established in January 1991 and now employs one architect and a team of full-time employees for the production of 3D simulations, preliminary, and working drawings.  In addition, a team of external consultants are periodically called upon for the production of other documents.

 

All documents and drawings are produced using digital media. All preliminary and working drawings are produced using CAD software, whereas 3D software is used to create simulations, renderings, and animations, which can be transferred to CD or DVD format for client review.

 

Mr. Arciero has also obtained LEED Green Associate certification, which confirms that the practice is conscious of environmental issues and strives to incorporate sustainable principles of design and construction wherever and whenever possible. As per the Leed principles, the office concentrates its efforts on the following practices:

 

- Sustainable site planning

- Searching for methods to increase water use efficiency

- Striving for energy efficiency

- Sourcing environmentally friendly materials

- Designing to optimize indoor environmental quality

 

Finally, we are constantly searching for innovative design solutions to improve the existing strategies in order to design buildings with optimal systems and environments.
