At BCM Aust, the foundation of our business is collaboration. Each of our projects is undertaken alongside some of Sydney’s most respected and renowned architects and designers, and we relish in the opportunity to bounce ideas off one another and create beautiful, unique homes that our clients adore.

Here’s how you can ensure your dream home benefits from a fruitful collaboration between architect, builder, designer and more…

Work with both your builder and architect at the beginning

Oftentimes, clients work with architects to draw up plans before they engage a builder. While this makes sense in theory, you’ll be missing out a range of benefits that come with working collaboratively with your architect and builder.

Architects and builders have different skills. Architects, for one, are able to take your rough ideas and concepts and create an incredible, aesthetic, functional home design that ticks all your boxes.

Builders, on the other hand, have a more robust understanding of materials and the real-time cost of contractors and can bring this knowledge to the table during the crucial design stage. Having multiple minds with different strengths come together during the planning stages will make for a well-thought-out house plan that falls within your budget.

Everyone will be on the same page

There are many different parties involved in a home build. This means a range of different people passing on information and updates to other suppliers, contractors and partners. A structure like this means significant room for error.

When you don’t have a single point of contact, or you have various parties unsure about the specifics of their role, complications may arise that could potentially impact your budget and cause delays to your build.

Having your architect and builder collaborating from the early stages of your project means everyone is on the same page and your process is more likely to be seamless, with your home delivered on time.

Less chance of variations

When you engage a builder, architect, designer and engineer separately, it’s far more likely that you’ll need to make changes to your project during construction. This will result in a variation and will be your responsibility to pay for on top of the contract cost.

This is why it’s essential to have your entire team on the same page from the get-go. By having your architect and builder working harmoniously as a team during the conceptual part of the building process, they’ll be able to come across any issues or complications together before they become a major issue during construction.

Collaboration is always best

A team that works collaboratively will be able to rise to any challenge, without interrupting the timeline of a build. This can easily be achieved through regularly scheduled meetings between everyone involved, and by ensuring that honest and open communication is prioritised from the very beginning.

A custom home build is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many people so you want to make sure you get it right, achieving a timeless and beautiful home.
