EXPERIENCED IN PLANNING & ZONING PROJECTS

 

OAPD is a diversified, full-service architectural design / planning construction management firm. We take full responsibility for all aspects of our projects, programming, design, materials research, project documentation, governmental approvals and sign-offs, field coordination, and observation. We deliver Certificates of Occupancy as the ultimate step of our work. We believe that ideas are the basis of architecture, so we look for the ideas and approaches that motivate, inspire, and fulfill the thoughts and dreams of the client. Each project is an opportunity to enter a new world--that of our clients. In New York City, zoning is a tool to maximize the potential of every site and project. Where zoning does not support the program or sense of the site, we work with legal specialists to pursue variances and special permits. We use site planning and landscape design elements to enhance the experiences that projects offer. Our work as architects consists of the following:

 

• Careful Zoning Analysis

• Full Code Analysis and Compliance • Full Documentation of All Plans, Elevations, and Sections

• Research of Materials and Systems • Project Manual and Specifications

• Department of Buildings Liaison

 

Our team includes excellent engineers in all required disciplines. We provide careful planning and dimensional coordination of lighting, HVAC, plumbing, sprinkler, electrical and lighting, and other mechanical elements for full coordination of the building project. In the end, we nurture projects to completion through Certificate of Occupancy. We work with experienced, seasoned, and caring expediters. We are Bronx-based, but we work throughout New York City and state.

PLANNING

 

Planning has been one of the most long-standing components of OAPD's services. Planning can be expressed in many ways through several disciplines: zoning; master planning; site planning; landscape design; feasibility studies and civil engineering. We have participated at many levels in all of these disciplines. The following are some examples of our planning projects.

ZONING

 

OAPD has specialized in zoning for many years, doing zoning studies and renderings as models of potential as part of feasibility studies, and providing the zoning analyses required for each of our project by the NYC DOB. The following are some zoning highlights of the projects we have been involved with.
