What We Do
A strong team and its collective efforts are essential for every architectural experiment to succeed. With respect to dignity of an individual, The Black Ink brings together a set of complementary skills, expertise & experience.
The firm is led by founder architect Sanjay Josshi. He believes in bringing together practical applications and architectural innovation. Through his extensive and myriad experience, he has managed to keep himself challenged, setting new benchmarks for himself and the industry at large.
By accepting every challenge & opportunity that comes in the way, the firm has grown exponentially since 1996. Today the firm has strength of 60 people. However, it continues to have nature of design hub and employs creative individuals from the fields of Architecture, Interior Design, Graphics Design and Landscape Design.
Due to the preference of transforming ideas into the flawless physical form, The Black Ink also employ highly experienced and energetic Civil engineers. The staff adopts a multi-disciplinary, collaborative and participatory approach to rigorously identify and analyze design problems. In this manner, the staff not only contributes in designing but also in the documentation and the project administration.
In order to increase the interaction and spreading the knowledge, office follows an open plan arrangement. Such work environment also helps The Black Ink achieving speed, visualization & professionalism in execution.
Detailing and Working Drawings.
Conceptual Development and Project Planning.
Quantity Calculations & Specifications.
Production drawings (sometimes called working drawings) are complete sets of drawings that detail the manufacturing and assembly of products (as distinct from engineering drawings prepared by and/or for production engineers whose task it to decide how best to manufacture the products).
An architectural drawing or architect’s drawing is a technical drawing of a building (or building project) that falls within the definition of architecture
Conceptual planning for capital projects may be defined as the process ofdeveloping the project scope through the preparation of a series of engineering documents from which detailed design, estimating, scheduling, cost control, and effective project management will flow.
A bill of quantities (BOQ) is a document used in tendering in the construction industry / supplies in which materials, parts, and labor (and their costs) are itemized. It also (ideally) details the terms and conditions of the construction or repair contract and itemizes all work to enable a contractor to price the work for which he or she is bidding.The quantities may be measured in number, length, area, volume, weight or time. Preparing a bill of quantities requires that the design is complete and a specification has been prepared. The bill of quantities is issued to tenderer for them to prepare a price for carrying out the works. The bill of quantities assists tenderer in the calculation of construction costs for their tender, and, as it means all tendering contractors will be pricing the same quantities (rather than taking-off quantities from the drawings and specifications themselves), it also provides a fair and accurate system for tendering
