  3. 3. THE PRACTICE Beglin Woods Architects Limited
  4. 4. Beglin Woods Architects LimitedBeglin Woods Architects Limited THE PRACTICE Beglin Woods is a leading architectural and design practice with a broad portfolio of work around East Africa generated by its offices in Nairobi. David Beglin and Simon Woods have an office of over 20 architectural, technical and administrative staff. Both partners act as principal designers, and are closely involved in the design development of all their Projects. The buildings are often complex and sophisticated in function, but are built from a simple range of carefully selected quality and maintenance free materials. Beglin Woods have developed an aesthetic and functional architectural style over the years in practice in East Africa and have gained experience in most sectors of the economy including Tourism, Commerce, Industry, Health Care, Research and Education. We aim to develop building designs quickly but carefully, to allow the maximum time possible for detailed design development. Our clients are encouraged to become involved in the design process from the start, as their detailed input is essential in the evolution of the building design. The production team works extremely quickly once a concept is agreed, and can often produce tender documents on large projects within weeks of appointment. We are however extremely flexible at all stages of the project, and ensure that all our clients needs are full incorporated. Our computer model generating facilities are greatly valued by our clients who are keen to participate in a three dimensional concepts as well as photo realistic images of their projects at a very early stage. It also allows us to offer extremely short pre-contract design time, and sophisticated post-contract financial monitoring and project management. Each project, however small, is designed, detailed and built to the highest possible standards. The best designed and constructed buildings will always be readily in the market more than other less well-designed buildings. All our buildings are designed to be aesthetically pleasing, enjoyable to use, economical and capable of adaptation and extension. Some of our buildings are nearly 14 years old, and demonstrate the benefits to our clients in getting it right the first time! The economics of building in a developing country creates an extremely tight market, because of rapidly fluctuating building and finance costs. Prices per unit area can vary greatly from region and the choice of building materials, structural systems and finishes the final budget. We instruct our consultants and quantity surveyors to maintain a strict eye on the project budget during both pre-contract and post-contract design stages. The design team pays particular attention to the economies of construction at both design and contract drawing stages. During construction, variations and fluctuations are carefully monitored and client approval is sought before contract sums are increased. Financial appraisals, including reviews of originally projected income figures, are carried out at regular intervals during construction, and finances are adjusted accordingly. Teams of consultants are carefully selected, based on their project. Working carefully with the client and the consultants, suitable structural, finishing and services, systems are selected for each immediate suitability to undertake a certain item, as we are always testing the availability and economy of materials and services within the market place. Project correspondence and documentation are aimed at giving our clients highly Professional service, which records and documents every single contract matter in clear legal contract terminology. Great care is always taken to understand building contracts carefully in every detail and all contractual correspondence is kept up to date on a on a daily basis. We believe we are one of the most professional Architectural firms in East Africa and are constantly striving to produce quality buildings on time and on budget. “We love our work, and always aim to give all our clients a first class service and quality buildings that are value for money”
