What can we do for your community?
With the help of its members and partners, Architects Without Frontiers can assist communities or community organisations in need of design and technical services for architectural, building and planning projects. We can provide assistance in a variety of ways, depending on the scope of your project - from feasibility studies, scoping documents and urban design advice, to architectural schematic design drawings, construction drawings and landscape or playground designs.
We typically charge a minimal project management fee, which is determined on a case-by-case basis and is dependant on the scope and demands of your project.
Please note that AWF does not provide funding for the construction of buildings or assist in the purchasing of land. We can, however, assist our partner organisations improve their funding capacity by providing feasibility studies, schematic design and scoping documents!
