COST CONTROL

Right from the space planning stage, we provide budget costs throughout the design process to ensure that whatever we are designing and specifying is within your budget. This gives you peace of mind prior to gaining actual costs from signed off designs and specifications from contractors.

CONTRACTS

There are four main contract types when running your project, and we’re able to advise on which is best for you.

Traditional_ Design, specification and tender procurement is undertaken by Cube 8 Studio. The potential contractors are provided with tender documentation and bids to win the works.

Design and build_ Main contractor are appointed to design and to construct the works, client appoints Cube 8 Studio independently to produce full design and specification. The contractor completes the design and carries out the construction.

Design, manage, construct_ Design and specification is undertaken by Cube 8 Studio. The contractor is appointed to manage the construction of the project through a series of trade contracts. This contract is good for complex or rapid construction because construction work can be started before the design is finished.

Open book contracting_ Design and specification are undertaken by Cube 8 Studio. A contractor is appointed to manage the construction of the project and agrees to open book contracting. This gaining trust between parties and eliminating the tender process.
