Design & Build for a Seamless Journey
Larger building projects such as home extensions and renovation work will involve a host of skilled professionals and specialist craftsmen.
Every building project follows three key steps – Design, Specify and Build – and one of the first things you’ll need to do is to decide on your preferred way of making these steps happen. You have two main options. On the one hand, you can opt to take the traditional route, which will mean briefing an architect or design consultant to prepare plans – then inviting building contractors to bid for the work.
This way of buying is widely used in our industry and can work well. But if you already have plans, we will need to ensure the available information is sufficient by running them through our Project De-risking service, so you can have complete certainty on budget and quality. Alternatively, you can appoint a main contractor to take responsibility for all aspects of designing and building your project. This way of buying – most often referred to simply as Design & Build, has many advantages over the traditional approach.
With our own experienced team, our trusted specialist partners, and our network of hand-picked quality suppliers, we have access to all the skills and resources required to deliver your project in its entirety. Our commitment to Design & Build means that when you entrust us with your project, we will take responsibility for everything – from initial concept right the way through to completion.
