Founded in 1971, ARQ71 i associats is an architecture study specialised in the creation of buildings, interior design projects, urban planning, consultancy and global construction projects.
We always work with principles based on accuracy, quality, functionality and design. During the process of each project we adopt the most appropriate solution focused on the customer, the surroundings and the type of construction.
Our customers can be entities, public or private organisms, builders, property developers, residents associations or individuals.
Regarding public organisms, our team is formed by architects with professional experience linked to municipal City Councils in four Catalan locations. This give us a special background and skills in the administrative works of processing building licenses or related plannings.
Our way of working in every new project combines aspects like design, functionality, quality, energy efficiency and adaptation to surroundings. In the case of interventions of restoration works and change of building’s original use, our approach always respects the character of each construction, while adapting it to new technologies and purposes.
The interior design is essential in order to complete projects globally and finish them with a comprehensive and uniform design.
We design unique spaces in each project, creating environments were our clients can identify themselves and feel comfortable.
In works and project management, ARQ71 professionals always keep in mind and especially focus on completing the jobs of each client successfully in terms of Time-Cost-Quality.
In the process of each construction work, ARQ71 counts with an own professional team including experts in:
Work Execution management
Safety and Health: Study and coordination
Economic Construction Management (Project Management)
