For clients, architectural projects are commonly seen as a mine field, plagued by unforseen hurdles such as; changes to scope post commencement of design, confusing and frustrating interactions between client and stakeholders as well as glitches in programming and cash flow. Such hurdles lead to cost and programme blowouts, bad publicity, frayed relationships, stress and often inconvenience for client stakeholders.
Shouldn’t the process of design delivery be smooth, with expected and planned outcomes? So why do problems so commonly occur? Because the usual approach advances into design work before implementing a thorough feasibility’ analysis of the project.
seeed offers an improved architectural delivery process that eliminates these hurdles by focusing on the foundational benefits of a feasibility analysis approach and the definition of project objectives. These services include;
|> Obtaining a full and detailed understanding of scope via broad stakeholder engagement. This has the dual effect of ensuring stakeholders develop a sense of ownership of the project.
|> Creation of a comprehensive project brief that is a composite of the functional requirements of the project, the potential issues identified during site analysis, possible procurement streams, as well as operational and maintenance standards.
|> Transparent information sharing across the entire project team. That is, between the client, design consultants and importantly user group stakeholders.
|> Smart technology that allows collaborative workflow and real-time monitoring of design mark-ups.
