· · · Choosing an Architect

ZIHUA I.D. will step you through the interviewing, selection, contract and budget negotiation process when searching for an architect, builder or contractor. We assist in choosing a skilled candidate with a solid reputation, proven track record and successfully executed construction projects.

· · · Construction Management

Once an architect or contractor has been selected, we work alongside to facilitate the planning and implementation of your building project. Through photo updates and progress reports, we give control back to our clients, ensuring that each phase of the project is delivered to our clients’ satisfaction. Our clients can rest easy knowing their investment is in skilled and capable hands.

Using Basecamp’s web based project tracking tool, each ZIHUA I.D. client is given password-protected access to their own project website on where all project communication (project timeline, weekly updates, photos, messages) is posted and organized. Clients can easily and effectively track the progress of their construction project, submit change requests or post comments on the work.

· · · Environmental Management

A successful building project hinges on many factors and one of the most important and probably most overlooked is the ongoing adherence during a construction project to certain terms which are outlined in the environmental impact report (EVR). Every building project is required to obtain an EVR, a complex document which among other things,stipulates the terms under which the construction phase must be executed.

Adherence to these terms by your builder or architect is crucial and is continuously surveyed by SEMARNAT inspectors who often perform surprise visits to the construction site. Defiance, disregard or incorrect interpretations of these terms can result in serious fines and can even bring your project to a halt. Our environmental management services ensure that the terms are carried out correctly on the construction site through multiple visits, inspections and recommendations, allowing for the construction to move forward unhindered.
