DESIGN INTO CONSTRUCTION

Construction is a fundamental element of the design process for us. We enjoy working with the design team, suppliers and constructors to understand the project challenges and then provide intelligent and economical engineering solutions. 

To aid our understanding of the construction process we breakdown the engineering into small erection sequences. This ensures that the final drawings reflect a design that can be built simply and safely. This process helps us question and define the critical design drivers, stripping away unnecessary complexity and focusing on the primary project objectives. For us, delivering value in construction is about understanding what the Client really wants.

We like to be involved in projects from the outset, collaborating and shaping the design with the team.  Our construction expertise enables us to approach the scheme design stage with confidence and clearly explain how our ideas can be translated into reality. We undertake project reviews and critiques so that we share our learning on past schemes in order to benefit current and future projects. This knowledge and understanding can only come from successfully delivering projects on site, seeing through connections from concept to fabrication and ultimately taking responsibility for our design solutions.
