DZAP advises | designs | realisation

DZAP is an agency where architects and project managers initiate, supervise and complete projects in close cooperation from A to Z. These projects focus on 6 specialisms in which we stand out: Hospitality & Hostmanship, Interior Design, Workplace Concepts, Revitalisation, Project Management and Facility Management.

Project management agency D&Z was founded in 1995. The main service provided by this agency was supporting clients in the process management of housing issues and conversions. Interior design has been an integral part of the service since 1999 and projects with a result commitment have been carried out since 2003 – under the name D+Z Architects + Project Managers. A new name change to DZAP followed in 2015.With a team of almost 50 employees, we work on office buildings, office interiors, catering establishments and the upper housing segment. Our work is characterised by innovation, creativity and realism. We distinguish ourselves by involving the customer in the entire process, from A to Z. We put ourselves in their shoes, provide critical input and make proactive suggestions. We are a sounding board in the broad sense of the term, which makes us a leader in the Dutch market.

1.0 Concept & Strategy

Is moving the right answer, or is refurbishing a better option? What costs do each of the choices involve, and what is the effect on the timeline? What option is going to cause the least disruption to the business? The answers to these questions are the starting point for translating the concept into a definitive plan.

2.0 Program requirements

The program of requirements then forms the foundation for the entire project. Both functional and spatial - what is required and desirable for facilities and how many square meters are required for this, taking into account any future expansion or contraction - as well as for technical provisions; for example climate control, access control and security and ICT facilities.

3.0 Architect cafe

This is a brainstorming session in which we work with the client to find the answers to essential questions like: what image does the client want to expose and what does the organisation want to communicate? But also: how do you want the employees to experience the office, and what impression should visitors take away from a visit to the location? In short, how do we express the client’s DNA in a good design?

4.0 Design

The design phase begins with discovering the aesthetic part of the program of requirements through our 'architect café'. The design is the result of three steps: concept or sketch design, preliminary design and definitive design. Concrete choices are made at each step – about the optimal layout, the right colours and materials, costs and timelines. As the designs are further developed, cost specifications and execution planning become more detailed. This is how we keep sight of the consequences of choices and stay on track moving forward towards the completion date.

5.0 Planning & Price

As the designs are further developed, cost specifications and execution planning become increasingly detailed. In this way we keep an eye on the consequences of choices and do not jeopardize the delivery date. At the end of the design phase, we have a complete overview in hand: the client knows what it looks like, what it’s going to cost, and when it will be finished.

When the construction and finishing work is done, it’s time for completion. Successful completion means three things: 1) A smooth move 2) Updating of the facilities plan 3) Project completion.
