Assisting in the interaction between designers and construction workers
Intelligent design works hand in hand with quality installation, fit-out and construction skills all of which are highly regulated. As projects are both budget and time sensitive this council provides the skills and guidance that designers are regularly required to be cognisant of.
This interaction of skills between a designer’s finished scheme and the logistics and compliance of structural and utility supplies provide a natural matrix for designers to deliver a turn-key project. Leading specialist area contractors, engineers and master tradesmen respected for their knowledge and experience in problem solving form this key information council.
The members of the Construction & Fit-out Council possess several hundred years of combined experience and unparalleled knowledge of construction & craftsman detail in contract fit-out to provide a seamless procurement across infrastructure and property development for design and build, fit-out and wellbeing.
