Can we Design and Build as Designed? In this section you can hear from award winning architects, contractors, developers, system suppliers and building product manufacturers, discussing their role in delivering award winning projects.

We look at the challenges they faced and how through innovation and collaboration schemes were delivered as designed, on time and on budget. We will also cover the latest industry awards, project profiles and interview key stakeholders such as the client, design team and end user.
