Effective Design for Construction and Fit Out
What if we told you it’s possible to assemble some of the leading engineers in the world to work as a team to make your vision viable and even stretch it beyond your ambitions?
With our global approach to drawing together the key specialists to answer your challenge, your project is many steps ahead from day one.
We call this process Enginuity.
Have a run through with our tool, setting your criteria, the scale of your project and its sector. Quickly you can visualise the range of specialists that could assist in making your project exemplary. It is the connections between these specialist where the magic happens, fertile ground for ideas and inventiveness. When you work with two or more BuroHappold specialists, one plus one really does equal three.
Access broad and deep experience in design for construction and fit out
Benefit from thorough and careful planning throughout your project. Our target is always zero-error project process, which means saving time and money on site and offering you a better return on investment. Providing support throughout the whole design and construction process, we look for opportunities for better ‘cost certainty’ and reduced risk, as was the case with the London Olympic Main Press Centre.
Another project that exemplifies our approach is One Angel Square, Manchester. This was a complex task worked across a tight set of constraints and a stringent brief which focused on reducing carbon emissions and energy use. The result? A happy client in a project that was awarded a score of 95.16%; the highest ever by BREEAM and a project delivered on time and budget.
Accelerating the building process
‘Buildability’ is crucial and so we consider ways to prefabricate, as used on Millennium Dome and O2 Arena, or to modularise the building system, as in the Haramain high speed railway stations design. Flexible, adaptable and rapid, these approaches mean designs can be constructed, and problems identified long before they even get to site.
The latest design technologies applied
We passionately believe that digital engineering such as Building Information Modelling, as used on the Yinchuan Art Museum development, will be a key factor in the future design of all buildings and will lead to improving the interface between design and construction. It helps our team visualise the entire project in terms of design and process, putting everyone literally on the same page, read ‘model’, a virtual 3D environment.
Integrated teams mean greater efficiencies
We like nothing better than to create a team of integrated specialists. At BuroHappold we work together to streamline the process and have conversations that create Eureka moments. And we work work equally well as part of the larger project team. In fact, Contractors use our skills to win work and we often help property agents and developers to unlock greater value from their projects.
