Architect Led Design & Build
Architect Led Design & Build is single source responsibility for the design, construction and commissioning of buildings. Typically a building owner hires an architect to draw a building project and a contractor to oversee the subcontractors that will build the project. This separation is adverse for the quality and cost of building. The building owner loses out.
Architect Led Design & Build is an agile process in which the same people are responsible for an entire building project. Our architect is also the construction manager, meaning feedback between method of construction and design is fluid and responsive.
Priorities between design, cost and programme are clear.
Good design at no extra cost.
Typically an owner sees the designer portion as expensive and a luxury they don't see value in, so they make decisions about their project before an architect is involved.
What is the program? Where is my site? How will it affect my budget? Where is the value for money?
As Architect and builder, we have tools that are critical for navigating early unknowns, such as assessing the feasibility of the project and evaluating real estate opportunities.We are in a position to help clients strategically plan their project, to determine how much space they actually need and to test fit their project on potential sites. We also consider construction options that affect the economic viability of the project.
Ultimately these early decisions are up to the project owners, but we can serve as a valuable resource to clarify options.
Expanding our role allows us to initiate projects that otherwise could not afford to exist.
We consider sites that developers typically shy away from because our experience as architect and builder allows us to find the feasible opportunity. We can consider building uses that are generally deemed non profitable, such as passive house life long homes, because we are also in a position to pair them with less typical, more economic methods of building.
Having the unique skills to find and make projects is not just an opportunity to better buildings, but to contribute to building a better built environment.
