Design and Build – You Don’t Know Us, So Why Should You Trust Us With Your Project?

If you are planning a Design and Build project, talk to us.

Tell us what you want to do and we will make it happen for you.

Talk to us about your ideas, your budget and your expectations and we will be honest and open with you from the beginning.

Why Design & Build?

Design and Build Gives you the advantage of being in total control, but with none of the hassle.

We are your single point of contact, reducing the time you would have spent co-ordinating separate disciplines.

After our initial meeting we will discuss your design ideas and translate these into 3D modelled drawings. These really give you a feel for what your project is going to look like.

The 6 main advantages of using Design and Build are:-

1 Total Accountability. You have a single point of contact for any issues relating to your project. We are responsible for the design, the cost and how long it takes to complete your project. The design-build method fosters teamwork and lends itself to cooperation.  Design-build focuses on results, not excuses.

2 Budget Management – Discussing the budget during the design phase (not waiting until the bids come in) helps to keep your projects within a realistic budget.

3 Continuity. Because we are involved from start to finish and have an overview of your project, the chance for things to fall through the cracks is greatly diminished.

4 Expertise. We are construction professionals and understand pricing, sequencing and how buildings go together. As structural engineers we have the advantage that we can predict structural issues and address them at the beginning of your project, reducing the chances of additional cost.

5 Faster Project Completion.  Design build projects can be completed in a shorter amount of time because: bid time is reduced, scheduling for the project can begin before design is finalized, potential construction problems are uncovered early and enhanced communication keeps everything moving .

6 Quality Control – The design build method helps to remove ambiguity that may arise in material and construction specifications. Our focus remains on protecting your interests.

Better Communication

You will have easy access to your Project Team via email, your Client Web Page or phone.

We will never patronise, ignore or confuse you with jargon – we aim to be approachable, plain speaking and encourage client collaboration and involvement at every stage.

Better Experience

Our use of the latest 3D technology and animation means that you will get the chance to see how your project will look at the earliest stage and as it develops.

You will be asked for feedback at every stage and we will work with you to generate a design that you can see in 3D and understand before a single foundation is dug or timber cut.

Better Design

Our commitment to design excellence means our team of Designers, Structural Engineers and Project Managers are as excited about your project as you are.

A Very Professional Service

“Throughout the build it was honestly seamless. It’s the best build project that I’ve ever been involved in. Because everything had been thought out so carefully before the build and using the BIM Model you could see it, you could visualise it. All the timeframes were met, we had no problems.

I had never her of the BIM model before, but it helped as you could see what you were going to get in 3D you could visualise it.

To look at a 2D plan it didn’t come alive but looking at a 3D plan you can look at it from every angle, and it also gets you excited about the build right from the start because you think this is possible and this is what it’s going to look like.
