Attested service, in the words of a UK Firm:
1. IKEA Cardiff  for SRA . Facade detail, production & full tender packages , submission to building authorities were developed in the Singapore office for Stubbs Rich Ltd.

2. BMW  Park Lane - production drawings were also developed in the Singapore office for Stubbs Rich Ltd.

3.New Garden Wing Ling Kwang Home designed & developed by Chartered Architects International.

“We have worked with Chartered Architects International since June 2002. During that time CAI have played an important role in several major accounts, particularly IKEA, H3G and MEPC.

CAI offered us a seamless integration with our UK teams to deliver many projects for these important clients successfully.  They implemented a range of extremely valuable and cost effective services, including work on GAs, preparation of trade packages, analysis and production of fire strategy drawings (e.g. travel distance and fire hose reach diagrams), site setting out based on OS co-ordinates and 3D modelling.  The better we have been able to brief them, the more able they are to deliver.

The CAI team are dedicated to achieving a high quality service, offering considerable commitment to meet tight deadlines, especially overnight.  This, combined with the experience of our collaboration over the past two years which has ironed out many of the teething problems associated with offshore working, means that CAI are well placed to provide an exceptional outsourcing service.

We are happy to recommend them.”

Attested service, in the words of a UK Registered Architect in Canada:

16 April 2004

Dear Sirs,

Chartered Architects International

As a UK registered architect, I have worked with the team in Singapore from my office near Vancouver over the past two years on a variety of projects, either directly with me or in a liaison role with the Stubbs Rich Architects staff in the Bath and London offices.  Projects have included a wide variety of building types, including research laboratories and offices for MEPC at Milton Park and a number of IKEA stores.  This method of service has been successful.  Remote working has required initial effort and a short learning curve for any staff leading a project.  Once mastered however, working ‘around the world – around the clock’ has enabled drawings and documentation to be produced very efficiently and otherwise impossible deadlines met; thus relieving the burden on the UK staff and resources.

The staff in Singapore forms a well organized competent team, eager to provide a good service and hungry for further work.  They have spent a great deal of time familiarizing themselves with UK regulations and products, which is typical of their resourceful nature and desire to constantly improve their service.  They are also amiable and a pleasure to work with.

As the peaks and troughs of architectural workload seem to become ever greater, with tighter fees and more urgent deadlines, I am sure remote working can provide you with a valuable tool for your resourcing requirements.  Not only can it provide you with a competitive edge, but I think they would demonstrate a progressive attitude for your company.  If you wish to discuss any aspect in further detail please feel free to contact me.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Parlane
