There are number of ways in which an Architect can be engaged on a project. For the clients looking for the highest quality build project and peace of mind we offer an Architect Led Design and Build service.
The combined supply chain of services approach offers clear advantages. Clients can decide to engage our design and build service as the single source entity at the start of a project and exclusively providing the design and construction. In this scenario we take the role of designer, project manager, and main contractor / builder. This approach gives the client the benefit of having a single point of contact regarding all aspects of the design and construction process. Alternately, a traditional design process can first be implemented to deal with the design and then be appointed as a principal contractor to undertake the construction.
Design and build services are sometimes offered by builders and developers. However in a profit driven environment, there may be less focus on the quality but profit gain for the builder. Having Architect in charge, it gives the client a reassurance that finished quality and design standards are of paramount importance.
The main advantages of Architect Led Design and Build project delivery are:
