Frequently Asked Questions
Mazefate understands that in every project, there will be queries about the overall work process. Here we list some of the common questions that are asked and hopes this will help you understand more about how we can assist you with the process.
Does Mazefate do audits of locations outside of Singapore?
Yes, we do. We do audits all over the world. We will conduct our pre-consultation with you via a web conference to understand more about your business and concerns. After that, we will schedule a visit to your site to conduct the audit. Our Clients will cover travel expenses such as transportation and accommodation.
My project is not yet completed or currently under construction. Is Mazefate still able to help?
Yes, we can. For projects still under construction, we can conduct an assessment of your project using architectural floor plans and drawings. We identify potential problem areas and provide advice on preventive measures.
How long does an audit take?
The duration of the audit depends on the project's size and complexity. We will be able to advise you better once we understand your project during our pre-consultation.
Does Mazefate require our staff to be present during the audit?
It is not a requirement for your staff to be present during the audit. However, it would be beneficial if a representative would be able to point out critical issues or concerns during the review, as it will help us understand the situation more in detail.
My business is just a small shop, is Mazefate still able to help?
Of course, we can. We audit projects of all sizes from small retail shops to large scale mixed developments. As long as your business consists of physical space, we can help.
Is Mazefate able to help present the audit findings to my stakeholders?
Yes, we can. If you require us to do presentations of the audit findings, just let us know.
What are the costs of an audit?
As each project requires a bespoke approach, the cost of the audit varies according to its size and complexity. We will be able to advise you better once we understand your project during our pre-consultation.
I don't wish to do an audit but would like to get Mazefate for just design or implementation. Are you able to help?
Yes, we can. Although our recommendation would be to start every project with an audit, our work stages are designed to be very flexible that it can be customized to suit your requirements.
How does Mazefate's "pay as you use" fee structure work?
We believe in cost-effective consultancy. Traditionally, a Client engages a Consultant through a lump sum contract basis. This process usually has problems such as delayed timelines, bloated budgets, and expanded scope creeps. We broke down the lump sum into smaller work stages where it allows flexibility to adjust the work scope and direction depending on the project's situation and vision. Each working stage has clear deliverables, and we require payment upon each delivery. This approach allows smaller businesses to gain access to a professional consultant, without the commitment of a contract.
I wish to engage Mazefate. However, my company policy still requires a traditional contract. Are we still able to work together?
Yes, we can. Although our recommendation would be to go by the pay as you use approach, we are flexible to accommodate businesses that still require a contract for works done. We can discuss this in detail during our pre-consultation.
I am interested in working with Mazefate as a partner, are we able to work together?
Of course, we can. We are always open for collaboration opportunities. As an independent consultancy firm, Mazefate services are flexible to cater not only to our direct Clients (business owners). We can work with different organisations such as Architects, Design Firms, and Contractors, to provide our services to suit your requirements. We can discuss this in detail during our pre-consultation.
