Company History:

 

Mérték Architectural Studio Ltd. was founded in 1987 by architects who left the state positions and entered into a partnership.

In more than two decades behind us the company went through several changes and significant progression. Thanks to the constant developments and internal trainings for our employees in the last ten years we are considered amongst the leader companies in Hungary.  The high quality works of our company and our colleagues’ professional activities were rewarded with numerous national and international recognitions. The Hungarian and the international press continuously reports the architectural, researching, developmental works made by our company.

Our office dealt with more than 4000 projects. The number of our colleagues is 68 persons, from which there are 40 who have a degree in architecture studies. We have a 200 person constant sub-planner background, with whom we have many years of proven working relationship.

We work with Hungarian and foreign developers, investors on several national and international (Europe, Asia and Africa) projects.

The Mérték Studio’s main intention is the development of the given area taking into account the local conditions. Our goal is to create buildings exceeding international artistic and architectural standards which are perfectly consistent with our partners’ expectations and financial options. Our Studio has up-to-date information about the principles and methods of modern, environment conscious planning. In the area of environment conscious, sustainable design we are leaders in our country. By our new, innovative planning method (ClimaDesign®) and developments we are acknowledged internationally.  The latest developmental policies known, well-trained designer and co-architect relationships allow us to meet the Hungarian and foreign standards and regulations but above all our partners’ expectations.

During numerous foreign co-operations we worked out long standing methods to increase the efficiency of cooperative work.

From 1998 the company had an ISO-9001:1994 certification (99-VNA-AQ-044), which was converted in March 2002 into an ISO 9001/2000 system.
