Design & Construct

Design & Construct (D&C) is a practice where architect & builder are on the same team delivering a project. Advantages of a successful D&C structure include earlier start and shorter construction program, better design buildability, application of innovative construction techniques and processes, all leading to potential cost saving.

Our Approach

CM+A have reviewed countless designs and tender packages for builders and developers over the years. In the process of assisting our builders competing for new work, we have accumulated vast knowledge and developed a keen eye for design risks and value management opportunities early on in the process.


Our focus is on keeping ahead of your trades procurement program. Our typical D&C service begins with a review of the design, where we look for discrepancies, compliance to building codes, authorities conditions, Australian Standards, consultants advice, and more. Our scope then naturally progresses to include value engineering, residual design, RFI assistance, detail documentation, shop drawings review, monthly design certification, and more.
