Value Engineering

Maximizing value is an integral part of the project lifecycle and hugely beneficial for clients when applied to the construction process. One of our many goals is to create the best possible value for our clients. We will carefully consider all aspects of the project when offering value engineering options. Land Sterling will work collaboratively with the client and architect to apply various cost-saving techniques. This approach to building design allows us to find opportunities to enhance efficiencies without scrimping on integrity or overall quality of the construction project.

BIM Implementation

Digitalization is rapidly changing our tools, forms of organization and processes. The BIM model offers numerous advantages to the planning, designing and coordination of construction projects. This technology helps to maximize the usefulness for multi-disciplinary collaboration required to deliver complex projects. Drawings, schedules and quantities can be produced directly from a BIM model and thus, improved overall management and the ability to track design development.

What is Design Management in Real Estate?

Design in property management is the process of creating a solution for a project brief and then preparing guidelines to implement the proposed solution. 

Design management is the process of managing the proposed design through the execution/implementation cycle of the project.

Land Sterling offers comprehensive design management services where we create innovative engineering designs for properties that deliver the best results. Once the design is created, we offer design implementation advice backed by an in-depth project analysis.

What is a Design Manager?

A design manager plays an enabling or a co-ordinating role in real estate development. The design manager doesn’t create the designs. Their job is to ensure that the designs approved by property owners are implemented in the right way. 

The primary responsibility of a design manager is to ensure seamless communication between all parties involved. They have the duty to analyse the feasibility of proposed designs to ensure that they are practical and carry minimum medium to long-term risk. 

Design managers offer their contributions during the planning and coordination phase to add value to the design implementation process.

Innovative Design Management Solutions  

Armed with years of experience in construction and real estate, Land Sterling drives multi-disciplinary design teams to meet project deliverables. From the outset, our design management strategies are intended to align with the client’s business strategy, financial models, and goals. 

Our enhanced layer of expertise; where close collaboration and knowledge-share are prioritized will ensure that all relevant stakeholder requirements are recorded and actioned at every juncture. 

Our team will always draw from technical and practical experience to deliver effective information flow on any project. By interrogating the project from the very beginning, we can ensure full coordination across disciplines and that any scope gaps are identified and properly managed.

Engineering Design

Land Sterling’s team of design experts provides specialist technical and engineering support to the consultant team throughout all design and implementation stages of a project.  We monitor code compliance and optimise build quality through the implementation of robust construction.

Value Management

Genuine value management is at the heart of our core design services – our experienced team analyse and interrogates projects through all stages to attain the best possible outcomes in relation to time, cost, and quality.

We provide design & peer reviews to enhance and streamline operational functionality – optimising efficiencies and spatial adjacencies to mitigate superfluous areas whilst protecting key amenities and logistics.

Our design and delivery teams also undertake technical audits that comprise buildability reviews & ‘true’ value-engineering workshops – that focus on the improvement of build quality balanced with cost-optimisation.

We promote a value-driven approach to cost management during the design process to retain value and protect the client’s assets. Throughout these processes, we work proactively with the consultant team in developing bespoke and engineered solutions catered to suit unique project requirements.

Whilst a key component of our complete project management offering, we also offer these specialisms as stand-alone services.

Design Implementation

We manage, interrogate, and audit BIM implementation throughout the design process, facilitating a fully collaborative, coordinated, live, and cloud-based working environment. Customised model simulations inform active clash detection & resolution reviews and expedite the production of coordinated construction documentation.  

The information and data also provide a critical management tool that enables Land Sterling to undertake real-time design reviews and pre-emptive buildability analyses – mitigating crucial lost time at the site. If required, Land Sterling’s scope can also be extended to encompass the actual BIM model production.
