Contractor Design Partnering

Collaborative Design Development

In recent years the M&E Building Services industry has been changing the way small to medium sized projects are carried out from the traditional Consultant designed RIBA Work Stage 4 fully designed Mechanical & Electrical services schemes and Specification, to a new method incorporating Performance Duties with a large element of Contractor Design Portion (CDP). 

Our understanding of what the professional team requires is a core part of our business as M&E Services Consultants producing performance tender specifications with the CDP element included and hence we understand what is required for a successful and approved scheme.

Ratio will undertake the complete design development of the original Design Intent Stage 3 Scheme in collaboration with the contractor to provide all necessary drawings, calculations, technical submissions and associated technical back-up for submission to the Professional team thereby relieving the contractor of the additional work generated by this type of contract allowing them to fully focus on the installation work.
