Good design is the goal of most architects, but delivering projects on programme and to budget requires time and effort. An understanding of the different appointment scenarios is essential for providing a viable and competitive fee. This seminar will explain how to provide a professional service without losing money in the complex world of building procurement.
We will show how briefing, design and procurement influence building performance and the common pitfalls to avoid. It will explain how to better influence project outcomes and client satisfaction, and how you can learn from projects after handover.
Presenting evidence of the ‘performance gap’ showing many buildings don’t meet their intended design expectations and the main causes, this seminar will explain how good briefing and stakeholder engagement can help give better outcomes, as well as the key roles that method of procurement and project implementation strategy play.
