Our role is to support Architects during design delivery to free up internal resources who can focus once more on the creative aspect of design.

The current economic cycle that we are living in requires all businesses to look again at how to deliver their services ensuring long term sustainability.
A key theme that is emerging is agility in a cost controlled environment.
Agility comes from sustaining a strong in house team that can produce the unique creative aspects of a project design from concept to end of schematic, after all this is the reason why clients work with a chosen architect. But then the designs go into production where capacity must be able to expand or contract depending on the project workload.
Production expansion and contraction in-house is very expensive and distracts teams from being creative.
The architectural industry is now moving beyond simply putting work with an outsource agency and hoping that the cost savings materialises. This is a high risk strategy that fails more often than not.
This where you need a production partner that can take your creative designs and run the production cycle for you turning your designs into construction documentation, shop drawings and finally capture the as-built condition.
We are seeing a new business model emerging where the architectural practice retains in-house partners and key creative staff in a scaled down office but then selects and develops a long term relationship with a production house as if that production house were actually in the same office to deliver project after project.
Modern technology makes this a reality for many businesses providing agility, increasing your profits and reducing overall business risk.
