DIAZ DIAZ is a data driven design firm, creating solutions and opportunities within the fields of architecture, environmental design, and research.
Our design interventions are based on scientific data and empirical information, and driven by both, the “right-brain” and “left-brain” modes of analysis. At DIAZ DIAZ, we have learned that by emphasizing credible evidence to influence design, we can make strategic decisions that respond to the specific needs and desired results of each client.
The resource efficiency development, such as the tools and methods DIAZ DIAZ uses to evaluate building performance, exemplify the importance of research and innovation in today’s society. We invest on research as a key differentiator to help us discover today’s opportunities and anticipate future trends, which consequently, allows our clients to meet the future demands rapidly and effectively.future of design new solutions science & arts innovation
We understand the importance of our client’s goals and processes. At DIAZ DIAZ, we work with a design process proven to guide towards specific goals.
DIAZ DIAZ is committed to design based on information and to work towards the desired results of each of our clients. Our first and key step is obtaining and documenting information needed to understand the clients’ needs and project goals.
Design revolves around a big idea. We believe in studying concepts and possibilities that fit the client’s needs established in the information phase. The final idea is a story that becomes a design framework to guide the project.
This is the process that takes the idea into a technical document. Here we develop the story by creating what we call in Panama, the “Anteproyecto”. It is about sharing the scope of the project, and integrating engineering knowledge and requirements needed for the development of the concept.
The construction plans are the final documents of the project. These are used for cost estimation, bidding, and construction. Every engineering discipline is involved throughout this phase, integrating their plans and focusing on problem-solving details.
We become an allied and guardian of the concept. Through site visits and virtual tools, our team ensures that construction goes according to design. We review equipment and material purchases, and answer any question and information needed.
The design process starts with finding the specific client’s goals; we want to end with measuring the project results against the original goals. We believe in documenting the outcomes and sharing the results internally with our team, and externally with our clients.
