Design management ensures that the integrity of the original design concept is developed and delivered as final plans for construction. During the design management process, our design Managers work with a range of technical personnel to ensure design elements are achievable in terms of cost, quality and time parameters.
Once you’ve briefed us on a project, you’ll be matched with a Design Manager from our team, who has been carefully selected based on their expertise, experience and suitability for the project.
What does a Design Manager do?
The first step in the process is for your appointed Design Manager to build a cohesive team of professionals to complete your design project on time and on budget. Depending on the project, this team might include architects, structural and services engineers, specialist designers, and any other professionals required for the successful delivery of your design plans.
The role of the Design Manager
First and foremost, the role of your Design Manager is to the get the best from the design team and ensure the timely delivery of your project plans. On a day-to-day basis your Design Manger fulfills a variety of important functions including:
- The accurate recording of meeting minutes and design changes
- Ensuring design changes meet authority requirements
- Ensuring the design meets principal project requirements, and
- Ensuring the design is within budget constraints

Our Services are scaled to suit each individual project depending on the project’s scope and budget. On smaller projects a Project Manager may be engaged to look after a broader range of tasks that might usually fall within the scope of a Design Manager, Superintendent or Development Manager. On larger projects it’s important to define and scope the roles articulating more specifically the responsibilities of these four service areas to ensure the project is delivered on time, cost and quality parameters.
