Stage 4 – Technical Design, the final step before Construction

Today we are looking at Stage 4 – Technical Design, the final step before Construction. Hopefully, you are following the series? if not, you can catch up on the previous posts here. Having completed Stage 3 – Spatial Coordination, the procurement route now follows 1 of 2 routes: “Traditional Contract” – The design team willContinue reading “Stage 4 – Technical Design, the final step before Construction”

Stage 3 – Spatial Coordination and getting the model right.

After developing the concept in Stage 2, we enter Stage 3 – Spatial Coordination and getting the model right. Hopefully, we have firmed up the concept and received constructive feedback from all team members prior to heading into the next stage. Having a robust concept (As previously mentioned) is so important so that we ‘stepContinue reading “Stage 3 – Spatial Coordination and getting the model right.”

Stage 2 – A robust and carefully considered concept design is key

It is our view that a robust and carefully considered concept is key. That might sound like a mouth full, but it is important because the concept design sets the tone for the project. After early engagement at Stage 1, the concept stage is a crucial part of the design process. Why is it soContinue reading “Stage 2 – A robust and carefully considered concept design is key”

Stage 1 – Why should you consider early engagement for MEP Services?

Today we are asking the question “why should you consider early engagement for MEP Services?”. Quite often the Building Services element gets pushed back to later on in the design process, which at times can be detrimental to the project. Having successfully delivered hundreds of projects during the past +20 years in the construction industry,Continue reading “Stage 1 – Why should you consider early engagement for MEP Services?”

RIBA, BSRIA, MEP… and how they come together in the Built Environment

Over the coming days, we will be running a series looking at RIBA, BSRIA, MEP… and how they come together in the Built Environment. As a backdrop we will quickly run through RIBA, BSRIA and MEP. Most of you will be familiar with these terms, but this might provide valuable insight into the design processContinue reading “RIBA, BSRIA, MEP… and how they come together in the Built Environment”
