Stage 4 - Design & Engineering

At this stage, many of the “big moves” are already decided, and the detailed design, engineering, and architecture drawings are prepared for realisation. In Design & Build projects, a single team is responsible for design, engineering, permits, and realisation. See our consulting services for more information.
