Overview of our services

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT & DOCUMENTATION

When a shortlisted project passes our selection criteria, it is identified as a potential project. Soon after, the company initiates a plan for it. At the early stage, we draft all the relevant technical drawings, which includes the extraction of the cubic volume, living space, and so on that are needed to formalise the application for permission to build. Also, our team of architects generates the detailed drawings which serve as input for the relevant departments in the company that handles the complete the building process. The building programme gets drafted, and the team lead responsible for the project is assigned.

As part of the process, close liaison with the local councils and provision of accurate documentation are required. We put a lot of effort into managing these relationships, and these have earned us a good record and approvals on all of our projects and applications.

To improve the communication with the councils, often we create 3D mock-ups of the environment to indicate how the defined concept fits in the neighbourhood.

CREATING BUSINESS PLANS

For all the shortlisted projects, we compare the current value with the projected cost. The gap serves as a construction budget to increase the projects' expected value. The planned building value determines the projected income. The relationship between the two helps to identify the Return on Investment (ROI).

To visualise the projected value of the project, they are rendered in 3D and the new identity of the area is revealed. Rendering allows us to identify the investment needs and cross-check the available building budget with the needs of the project.

Furthermore, the significance of each investment is evaluated carefully by examining the demographic dynamics in the local area, district and county. In short, we only invest at this point if it is impactful and will bring value.

FEASIBILITY STUDIES

After a project is brought forward, the feasibility study is carried out.

That entails:
Discussion with authorities to determine the maximum allowed living/working space

Discussion with the architecture and engineering department to understand the main cost drivers for the project.

Identify the expected challenges and risks, such as issues with noise cancellation and anything that can make the project not feasible.

Estimate the ROI of the project; match the foreseen cost with the expected returns.

STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT

We continuously look at supply and demand in the real estate market, then assess LIKA AL GmbH available resources for new projects.

Considering the circumstances, construction projects (new buildings and renovations) are prioritised based on best ROI.

Risk is diversified by undertaking projects of different classes: Standard, Premium and Luxury.

Each class has a different challenge that complements each other. Risk is mitigated by proportioning project classes based on market demand/share.
