services we offer



The appraisal and definition of a project to design, conceptualisation and design development as well as functions of technical documentation, contractual administration, project management and inspection.

Interior Architecture

We create considered areas, working around the sensitivities of each space and client. Aiming to establish an identity through their interior layout.

Landscape Architecture

Landscape design service from concept to detailed design and project management. Our involvement and scope of work for a project varies depending on a client’s needs. The design of outdoor areas, landmarks, and structures to achieve environmental, social-behavioural, or aesthetic outcomes.

Master Planning

Long-term planning that provides a conceptual layout to guide future growth and development. A master plan includes analysis, recommendations, and proposals for a site’s population, economy, housing, transportation, community facilities, and land use.

Urban Concepts

The design of individual buildings and deals with the larger scale of groups of buildings, streets and public spaces, whole neighbourhoods and districts, and entire cities.

Building Information Modeling

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architects, engineers and other consultants the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure.


Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality solutions are tailored to your needs and industry. Our AR/VR solutions combine cutting-edge technology and extremely user-friendly. At the same time, our rich experience enables us to deliver stunning quality graphics and content.

3D Illustrations & Video Render

3D rendering is a creative process that is similar to photography or cinematography, because you’re lighting and staging scenes and producing images. Unlike regular photography though, the scenes being photographed are imaginary, and everything that appears in a 3D rendering needs to be created (or re-created) using powerful software.

Drone Technology

Photography with drones is a great way to create breathtaking, high-quality aerial cinematography, which is perfect for marketing and research purposes. You can instantly show the viewer what you are envisaging, and give them a perspective they may have never seen before. Photogrammetry: using the drone, BPAS can create a point cloud model (digital model) of any site or building to be used in drawing software such as Revit. A model like this would include most of the detail of the site’s fall, existing structures and even existing vegetation.

3D Printing & Model Building

The architectural model is a tool often used to express building design or a masterplan. Our architectural models are used to show the scale and physical presence of a proposed design. The model is a 3-dimensional replica or expression of the design, usually at a level much smaller than full size.

3D Laser Scanning, 3D Measurement, Imaging & Realisation Solutions

3D Scanning provides the most precise 3D measurement, imaging and realization technologies for manufacturing, construction and public safety analytics industries. Laser Scanner is enabled to capture fast, straightforward and accurate measurements of complex objects and buildings
