Enhancing architectural designs

PROVIDING value for clients and enhancing design and construction are the main objectives behind Ali Design Architecture (ADA) PTE Ltd, an architectural firm owned by Zubed Ali of Nadi.

The business, which was established in 2010, hopes to become one of the highly recognised company that builders, clients and even competitors will look to in the future as their first choice for designs in the architectural industry.

The firm hopes to build successful relationships and to treat every project with the same level of commitment and attention to fine details and it hopes to leave no stone unturned in terms of quality and customer satisfaction.

Ali Design Architecture PTE Ltd managing director Zubed Ali said there was a great need to develop architecture in Fiji.

“I started the business in 2010 after looking for a job, going for job interviews at architects firms and not getting employed by a firm. From that experience, I decided to open my own architectural firm and to show people what I know in architectural designs,” Mr Ali said.

“Since 2010, I’ve worked hard to establish my own firm and in 2014 I started to employ staff and I now have seven architect designers working at ADA.”

He said his firm offered services such as concept designs, 3D artist impressions, interior designs, building plans documentation, engineering drawing documentations, services drawing, tender process, construction supervision and project management and full package for client to move in their residence.

“I have always been inspired by architecture as a child, particularly playing by the riverside and spending nights beside the river building my own little home with timber raft and bamboo,” he said.

“My family and teachers inspired me to take up this field of work especially when I did projects in school. I thank my dada Alim Begg who pushed me to do architecture while growing up.”

Some of the major architectural projects that the business has done include the New Era Development Ltd at Lomolomo in Lautoka, the Lion One Ltd in Nadi, the Golden Point Resort in Rakiraki, the Turtle Island Resort in Yasawa, villas on Naisoso, Denarau and Fantasy islands, Lunch Box, Chicken Express, Hotel North Pole and Apartments in Labasa and Nadi, the Hibiscus Apartments in Nadi, other commercial projects, service stations, supermarkets, and residential apartments to name only a few.
