The Importance of Collaboration
Collaboration in construction is the combination of multiple firms harnessing their expertise, with the mutual goal of achieving the best outcome for the client. Collaboration between Architecture and Construction firms is invaluable to the building process. RW Design has collaborated with a variety of firms throughout our decades of industry experience, one great example is our collaboration with RPC Construction on the RSA Rangiora and Rangiora Post Office. Russel Pitt, Managing Director of RPC Construction had some great comments to say about working with RW Design, which is 100% reciprocated from all of us here at RW Design. Collaboration ensures all obstacles were overcome, reduced construction costs in the long run, and ensures the project ran smoothly, creating an amazing outcome for all parties involved, especially for the client. This collaboration led to amazing feedback from our client, here is what Ross Ditmar had to say about working with RW Design!
Ross Ditmar, Rangiora RSA Club President
"The Rangiora RSA Club engaged the services of RW Design to redesign our facilities, and their professionalism and knowledge was outstanding, we had formal fortnightly meetings and they were always thinking ahead ensuring the project flowed without delays.”
“They were always available to discuss the project and when we encountered a problem they had the solution promptly. Having a dedicated person on their team overseeing our project was excellent and ensured that they had a deep knowledge of the work required.”
“RW Design took over our project at an early stage and the results were amazing, their knowledge uncovered items that needed attention that could have posed very costly remedies later in the process…. Without question we would work with them again; we had a very harmonious construction team that all worked well together".
Russel Pit, RPC Construction
Working with Russel Pitt and RPC Constructions was incredible, pulling together both firms expertise made the entire process streamline and enjoyable, here is what Russel had to say about working alongside RW Design!
"RPC have worked with RW Design on a few projects. Both the Rangiora RSA and the Old Post Office building in Rangiora, these were old buildings that uncovered a lot of unknown issues. What I like about RW Design which comes from Robin’s guidance to start with is their problem-solving attitude. They would just come to site or attend site meetings and help find the best solution for any issues for the project. Clearly cost to the principal is always important but when all parties work together this is easier to manage. I think this is a great attribute to them and makes working with them enjoyable for the whole team. Not all consultants work like this.”
