Aluminium Overcladding

Traditional Procurement –
Example Two

A non-specialist architect lacking in experience of overcladding projects is appointed to produce designs:

  • A ‘signature’ design may result
  • Systems may be specified at this early stage before the design build specialist is involved
  • There may be issues with buildability
  • The design is over-budget, unaffordable to the client and has to be adapted to meet budget

As design build specialists we have been able to resolve this by taking design-intent drawings and offer alternative, look-alike solutions which meet the Employer’s Requirements, the design intent and which are affordable to the client (in some cases delivering cost savings 30% lower than the specified equivalent).
