WHAT IS ARCHITECTURE?

Architecture (Latin architectura, after the Greek ἀρχή τέχνη – arkhḗ tékhnē – composed by ἀρχή “origin” and τέχνη “art, craft”)

Architecture has to do with planningdesigning and constructing formspace and ambience to reflect functionaltechnicalsocialenvironmental and aesthetic considerations. It requires the creative manipulation and coordination of materials and technology, and of light and shadow. Often, conflicting requirements must be resolved. The practice of Architecture also encompasses the pragmatic aspects of realizing buildings and structures, including scheduling, cost estimation and construction administration. Documentation produced by architects, typically drawings, plans and technical specifications, defines the structure and/or behavior of a building or other kind of system that is to be or has been constructed.

“Excellent Service”

“Top Quality Work”

Alan Shaw ( Former Registrar - University of Fort Hare )

In my role as project coordinator for the University of Fort Hare, I have been involved with Pursey and Boucher for over 10 years.

The attribute that stands out the most for me is integrity. Integrity in the excellence of the work carried out, integrity in all financial aspects, integrity of design and integrity in the personal relationships that emerge from dealings with the firm. It is such a comfort to be able to recommend them to anybody seeking architectural services in the sure knowledge that they will never be disappointed. Subsequent to my association though the University of Fort Hare, I have used the services of Pursey and Boucher in a private capacity and recommended their services to various clients. Without exception, they have provided excellent service in line with their deep-seated commitment to meeting the needs of their clients.

Terry Marsh ( Retired Professor )

Whilst employed by the University of Fort Hare in the capacity of Executive Director: Strategic Development, during the period 2006 – 2012, the unit I ran enjoyed a very productive working relationship with Pursey & Boucher Architectural Services.

We commissioned them to render design drawings, working drawings and project management services on several of the infrastructure development projects for which we were responsible. Their work was always of top quality and was executed in a friendly, but professional and highly efficient manner. The overall value of the projects in which they were involved amounted to many millions of Rand and there is no doubt that the service they gave added value in a substantial way to the physical facilities of the University on all three of its campuses – Alice, Bhisho and East London.
