Making people happy and smile is the best thing in life, building for people not for buildings is my philosophy.
Delivering personal quality. Developers have to do to buildings what Dyson did to hoovers or what Apple did for phones. Designing spaces that have smart pioneering technology integrated within as part of the building fabric whilst retaining beauty is critical. Investors will be drawn towards timeless design and construction excellence, buildings that can be built with the end user at the forefront of thinking.
Empowering the investor by offering them a set at the table in the process is desirable. Allowing the investor to understand the building inside out and being in control of what they have bought into has value. One way of doing this is to offer a 3D BIM user friendly model that breaks down the building in all its separate components, so that its future proof in its adaptability and maintenance.
No one human is the same to the next in appearance or personality, neither are buildings! They all have their own separate characters and we need to humanise them by making the whole outlook of construction and architecture approachable, more transparent. Our workflow is incredibly interesting and investing into a flat that also sells the development adds value. Investors can then appreciate the efforts we all go through to ensure QA is maintained throughout and the supply chain has been of the highest quality.
We need to communicate the process of design and construction to investors that their investment is not only with the finished product but with the whole process, possibly that way we can get them to invest early and in stages, so phased investment in the construction process or even as early as the design process.
