Design Management

Design management is key to mitigating risks and delivering large and complex projects successfully.

Sheets of water fell nine metres from ceiling to floor in the River Room of the New Zealand Pavilion at Expo 2020. A prime example of the benefits of design management, the pavilion's complex design was delivered from Aotearoa New Zealand during a global pandemic and constructed on the outskirts of Dubai.


Construction is becoming an increasingly complex sector to deliver effectively in, requiring sophisticated management to anticipate and mitigate the array of challenges that projects face.

Design management is a necessity for large, complex projects across the aviation, transport, health, science, civic and tertiary sectors. It can also support the fast-tracking of commercial, mixed-use, and hospitality projects where reducing time to market is essential.
