Design team selection is equally as important as contractor selection. The quality of your design team selection will directly reflect the quality of the design documents.
Design team selection is critical and plays a critical role in the quality of our built environment. The capabilities of the architects and engineers on the integrated design team constitute the single most important factor in determining the success of the overall design—from image and attributes of the building and landscape to construction costs and life-cycle costs. Building in today’s marketplace is a complex undertaking requiring many different skills and materials.
Successful designs are the result of good design team selection and of an integrated design process that addresses not only client needs and requirements, but also climate, context, and quality while complying with public health, safety, and welfare, and sustainability building requirements. Well qualified design professionals who understand these complexities, can deliver thoughtful and innovative designs that satisfy the client’s programmatic needs, while addressing the unique characteristics of a given site and community.
Involving Nationwide Consulting LLC before the design team is selected allows Nationwide Consulting LLC to give our recommendation on the personnel who will communicate your vision through plans. Efficient design documents come from good design team selection; this will help to nullify extra costs associated with design deficiencies and limit orders.
