When to Enlist Our Services

Tonkin Schutz design build encourage clients to bring us into the project as early as possible, to gain the most advantage from our approach and expertise. This is because, as demonstrated in the graph below, the more your project has progressed, the more you have invested in it and the more costly it will be to make any corrections. We aim to ensure projects are well planned from the beginning.

It is because of our encompassing expertise and experience that we manage to protect clients from unforeseen issues and maximise their investment.

The traditional model where each phase is performed by a number of different independent parties, makes it difficult for things to progress smoothly, as each party has little contact with each other, or only comes into contact with the next party during transition from one phase to the next. This means the architects only have contact with the builders once the plans are complete, while at Tonkin Schutz design build, they can consult the construction workers (as well as the legal, feasibility and fabrication experts) as the plans are developed.

This ensures continuity, efficiency and certainty in meeting the project's objectives.

Because we always have clear insight into the entire process, and expertise from each level in each phase, it makes it much easier for us to ensure we don’t overlook anything.
