Out with the council runners and in with the drafting agencies.
Drafting agency? What do they do? They draft your council submission drawings and now submit them for you. You have certainly heard of The Maboneng Precinct. Buildings in this precinct have used agencies like this. The Maboneng Precinct is known as "The Place of Light" and can be said to breed entrepreneurs. One of the drafting agencies being used is Intervention Architecture-
The field of Architecture in Gauteng welcomes this much needed Intervention, where council runners are substituted. Currently, this Intervention has been accepted by over 100 Architects in the Johannesburg region with the acceptance growing and reaching out much further at an alarming rate.
The birth of this Intervention has been inspired by some of the largest projects in Africa: Steyn City and The Maboneng Precinct. This inspiration drove CEO and Founder of Intervention Architecture, Prashant Bhaga, to create a new industry standard. Prashant realized that council runners can create risk in an architectural firm. Council runners were required to handle submissions on behalf of architects and were expected to lessen the time for a building plan to be passed. Potential issues arise in this scenario when a council runner does not have a vested interest in the plans being passed timeously or in the quality of the drawings. A council runner may not always share the same passion on a project as an Architect or someone with an Architectural background.
When Intervention Architecture intervened in the Maboneng Precincts Architectural process, the company’s position became solid as a highly beneficial solution. The solution involved drafting the municipal submission set for Architects and having the set pre-approved in order to introduce exceptional ease to the job of an architect.
Drawings are now completed without the architects needing to be concerned. They are pre-approved, submitted and stamped for approval. This created a strange phenomenon: a firm with a vested interest in the Architects success.
