Benefits To Client

  • Design and Programme Management: Managing design development, understanding end-user requirements and the construction programme are vital to successfully manage the introduction of late design changes that are driven by the Client’s commercial requirements. A detailed understanding of the programme enabled Doig+Smith to quickly identify the risks to programme and manage these design changes accordingly.
  • Design Management: Doig+Smith managed the development of design elements covered by Provisional Sums, which was key to completion of design and subsequent construction works on site, on programme. Doig+Smith managed and co-ordinated the design changes introduced by incoming tenants at a late stage in the development, such that there was no impact on the construction programme. Doig+Smith also separately managed the introduction and costing of an extensive alteration to the scope of works that was introduced as part of a Client Commercial Agreement with an occupier.
