What Are the Benefits of Partnering With a Technical Design-led Fit Out Firm?

We’ve all seen the direction of travel move increasingly to Design & Build when it comes to procuring fit out or light refurbishment.

Whether turnkey or Stage 3 Detail & Build, the function of estimating requires a different approach. Add into the mix the increasing importance of repurposing buildings and reducing/reusing anything we can, we need a technical design led approach.

Understanding the intent and being technically confident enough to give firm costs on alternative solutions, and best reuse of the existing is where real value can be added.

Realising the full opportunities of value engineering rather than just offering a few alternative products. To really embrace sustainability within Design & Build, it needs more than just a few attractive 3D renders.

Having a consistent commercial point from tender to practical completion, supported by in-house technical design, is the only way to realise all the opportunities which will provide significant benefits for the commercial success of a project.

The earlier I’m involved in a project the more commercial opportunities I can identify at each stage, providing our clients the best value for their space and providing their consultants with the detailed specifications and technical design to ensure quality in all aspects of the build.

Team Projects have changed our approach to estimating. We like to think of it as fully costed solutions for consideration.
