Hassle free approach

We make transforming offices easy by managing the project from start to finish. You don’t have to worry about dealing with multiple contractors because we take care of it all for you. We shoulder total responsibility for the project, making it hassle free.

Fast track programmes

With design & build, design and construction phases can overlap, accelerating the project timeline. This reduces the overall project duration and associated costs, such as site management and financing. In addition, a single contract for both design and construction reduces administrative efforts and speeds up decision-making.

With one entity responsible for both design and fit out, there are fewer conflicts and misunderstandings. This reduces the risk of costly disputes and delays. Design and build teams also collaboratively find cost-effective solutions without compromising quality, often leading to significant savings.

Office design and build FAQs

What is design & build?

Design & Build is a project delivery method where a single entity is responsible for both the design and construction of a project. This approach integrates the design and construction phases, providing a streamlined and cohesive process. The design & build contractor manages all aspects of the project, from initial concept and design through to construction and completion. This method is known for its efficiency, cost-effectiveness and ability to deliver projects faster compared to traditional methods where design and construction are handled separately. Key benefits include reduced risk, improved collaboration and greater cost certainty.

What types of projects are suitable for the design & build method?

The office design and build methodology is particularly suitable for fit out projects that require compressed timescales or budget certainty, including:

- Quick Turnaround Fit Outs: Projects that need to be completed rapidly, with overlapping design and construction phases to meet tight deadlines.

- Cost-Certain Fit Outs: Projects where budget certainty is crucial, benefiting from fixed-price contracts and early cost estimation.

- Cat A to Cat B Conversions: Quickly transforming basic office spaces into fully customised environments tailored to specific business needs.

- Office Refurbishments: Modernising existing spaces efficiently to minimise downtime and ensure budget adherence.

- Reconfigurations for Growth: Rapidly adjusting office layouts to accommodate business expansion or changing needs within a fixed budget.

- Specialised Fit Outs: Creating custom environments such as tech hubs or collaborative workspaces where time and cost efficiency are critical.

This methodology excels in delivering projects efficiently and cost-effectively, making it ideal for businesses needing reliable budget management and expedited completion.

How long does an office design & build project take?

The duration of an office design and build project can vary significantly depending on factors such as the size of the office, the complexity of the design and the scope of the work required. Generally, small to medium-sized office projects can take anywhere from 8 to 16 weeks. Larger or more complex projects may take several months to complete. The design & build approach often allows for faster project completion compared to traditional methods, as the design and construction phases can overlap and be more efficiently managed. For a more accurate timeline, it's best to consult with a design & build firm to assess your specific project requirements.

How much does an office design & build project cost?

The cost of an office design and build project varies widely based on several factors including the size and complexity of the space, location, design specifications, materials used and the level of customisation required. For a more accurate estimate, it's best to consult with a design & build firm to discuss your specific needs and budget. They can provide a detailed proposal that considers all aspects of the project, ensuring you understand the full scope and cost involved.

What are the benefits of using design & build in office interior projects?

The design and build methodology offers several benefits for office interior projects, including:

- Faster Completion: Integrated design and construction phases allow for overlapping tasks, reducing overall project duration.

- Cost Certainty: Fixed-price contracts and early cost estimations provide greater budget control and minimise the risk of cost overruns.

- Streamlined Communication: A single point of responsibility enhances coordination and reduces the likelihood of misunderstandings or conflicts.

- Improved Collaboration: Close collaboration between designers and builders fosters innovative solutions and ensures project goals are met.

- Reduced Administrative Burden: Managing one contract instead of separate ones for design and construction simplifies project administration.

- Enhanced Quality: The holistic approach ensures that the final outcome meets both design and functional requirements effectively.

These benefits make design and build an efficient and cost-effective approach for office interior projects, especially those with tight schedules and budget constraints.
