Is it time to move to the Single Design Model?

In the rapidly changing modern world new ideas and innovations are appearing in various different sectors, and construction is no different. From BIM to Virtual reality, industry professionals are coming to terms with new technologies and seeing how they can be used to make life easier, utilising all available resources and ideally saving time and money. In this blog we take a look at a new approach that is picking up pace and popularity within the industry; the single design model.

One of the most precious commodities when designing and building a new project is time. Everyone has their own deadlines, and as they say in Hollywood, time is money. Using the single design model would help you to save time from the drawing up process through to completion on site. The single design model essentially is a process which focuses onto having all skills in-house, creating an office where a design can be thought, engineered and constructed all in the same place, using the same model initially created.

Traditionally, engineering documents were created then given to the contractor to re-draw with different information. Now, to save time and money, there’s a shift to have it all in-house from engineering to coordination, creating a one-stop shop. If co-ordinated correctly, models can and should, go through engineering right into construction. The result of this could mean a 15 month project turning into a 9 month one.

The single design model is certainly something which is being used more and more frequently. Companies can see the benefit in having everything under their own watch, and are saving time and money as a result. Maybe it’s time you dabbled in the single design model.
