ARCHITECTURAL MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Architectural Management Services (AMS) is an architectural consultancy based in Madras (Chennai), Tamilnadu with operations in India. Our specialization lies in architecture and planning, interior design, project management, sustainable building design, urban design, conservation and planning as needed in residential, commercial, institutional and industrial applications. With over two decades of experience and 4 million square-feet constructed in several cities across India, our expertise ranges across several disciplines which renders us able to design, plan and manage the construction of projects ranging from single family residences to sprawling industries
We charge an architectural / project management fee based on the guidelines set by the Council of Architecture, the Governing Body for Architects across India. Our pricing would depend upon the nature of the work, the size of the building, the level of details involved in the construction, the exact scope of our work as well as the timeline of the project. We believe in delivering work of the highest quality within a given period of time and hence do charge a fee commensurate to the quantum of work done
