Design & Build
Design & Build is a construction delivery method that provides owners with a single point of contact for both the design and construction phases of a project.
You first appoint consultants, normally an Architect and perhaps a Quantity Surveyor (QS), to design the project in detail. The Architect then prepares tender documentation, including drawings, work schedules and bills of quantities.
We design buildings. We prepare detailed plans. This includes in particular, designs, plans and drawings that can be used for getting Planning Consent and for Builders and Contractors to use.
When applied to the construction process, value engineering has enormous benefit for potential clients. The multi-step process is an integral part the design stage of a new development and aimed at increasing value. In value engineering, value is defined as function divided by cost.
