When you purchase land to construct a building or to renovate and modify the existing one must take into account a series of factors:

1Urban factors

Stict building mode is regulated by overall framework, and especially by urban planning regulations that are accompanied by plans: General Urban Plan – P.U.G, Urban Area Plan – P.U.Z. or the Detailed Urban Plan – P.U.D. Engineered buildings must comply with Civil Code and all regulations that relate to the land in question:

  • Allowed function
  • Maximum height
  • Withdrawals of the building toward his boundary
  • The coefficient of land use (C.U.T.) -Report of the total area of the building and land area developed.
  • The percentage of land occupation (P.O.T.) – Report between ground surface of the proposed building and the land surface.
  • Other legal regulations on environmental protection, protection of historical monuments, operational safety, fire protection, etc.

2The size and orientation of the land

The minimum size of land required by town planning regulations establish the type of buildings that can be built on land: insulated buildings or inlined / paired buildings. The orientation towards the cardinal points determine the linking of the interior spaces with the exterior.

3Access roads, neighborhoods and public utilities

It is desirable for the land to be in proximity to roads, streets or highways but noise or chemical pollution must be taken into consideration. Electricity, water, sewage, natural gas can be provided by connecting to the urban networks or from own sources. Neighborhood of shops, parks, kindergartens, schools, public transport can influence your decision.

4Foundation soil type

Buildings can be made under any conditions of the foundation, regardless of the nature of the terrain but costs can vary significantly. We recommend consulting an architect before purchasing the land that is to be built.

Exigencies in design

Any construction should be performed based a technical design and execution details. Designing a building must satisfy a number of requirements: functional, aesthetic, economic, structural, environmental, behavior over time, orientation, speed of execution and others.

Architect’s role is to mediate these demands in an innovative way. A technical execution project consists of the following fields: architecture, structural strength, plumbing, heating and ventilation, electrical and security. The project manager is the coordinator of the specialities.

Architectural solution, materials of the resistance structure or finishes are elements that can cause very significant variations of the total investment cost. Duration of a project varies depending on the complexity of the project and approval times.

Legal considerations

The projects are prepared in accordance with Romanian legislation in line with European standards.

To build a new building or to modify / enhance / demolish an existing one, legally, it is mandatory to obtain a construction permit.

The applicant for authorization must be the holder of an actual land ownership.
