From day one, your vision becomes bigger with BuroHappold. We expand its parameters, pushing harder, exploring further and investigating more deeply into every project. Our teams of leading engineers not only meet every challenge, but also stretch your ambitions to create a truly transformative structure.
When we connect our engineering professionals around an approach, magic happens. It is something that perhaps clients miss out on with more traditional, silo-styled practices. It is the connections between these specialisms where the magic happens, creating fertile ground for invention and new ideas. We call these approaches ‘Service Offers’ – start exploring them by choosing one from the list below.
Bring the power of an orchestrated team with a broad range of specialist skills to bear on your project, no matter how complex
Whatever the size of your vision, whether it is for a building, an airport terminal, a city district or an entire city, you can access many of the world’s leading practitioners to form your integrated team. But what are the hidden advantages in working with a range of specialists from BuroHappold’s international practice?
Integration creates advantages
Firstly, you know you are getting strong leadership and best practice; the most innovative and current thinking, design skills, technologies and systems to tackle seemingly insurmountable challenges. But it is in the unified assault on complex problems, where the spark and brilliance really happens, when our specialists consult with each other in the margins. This level of collaboration and communication is not something you will find in more traditional firms and silo type practices.
At BuroHappold our Integrated Design approach goes beyond coordination to generate interdependent solutions that add value and improve efficiency.
A collaborative approach
Integrated Design relies on the whole project team working together not just the engineers. We use BIM as a tool to clearly communicate our design ideas and avoid misunderstandings. Our approach is proactive and multi-disciplinary generating synergies between disciplines. Through our sector expertise we are aware of every specialist aspect of a project from A to Z. This allows us to work closely with the client and Lead Consultant to define and direct the project and to make the vision viable.
Managing stakeholder relationships well is key. Access our extensive experience of complex projects to ensure the very best technical and sector skills in creating high performance buildings.
The technical world of construction is becoming ever more complex and specialist and increasingly at risk of being compartmentalised and siloed. We work hard on the interfaces to make sure that there are no gaps and that integrated solutions are generated from the inception of the project.
