We know how to design to budget
I have been fortunate enough to work in a few different countries, and New Zealand has one of the most fragmented residential construction sectors. Very little is prefabricated, and off site manufacturing is really only just taking off. So every project is be-spoke.
I have found that it pays (literally) to work with the same teams, and design systems that everyone in the team understands. A work site with subbies that are disorganised will cost clients money. In an industry dominated by small scale builders, its important to set contracts up that apportion risk sensibly.
