Strategic Advisory Service

Our design and project management experts will facilitate a process to unlock your strategic brief, define the project goals and develop a project strategy to present a business case with an optimal solution.


What We Do

Arei Designs offers sound strategic advice and processes, independent of the supply side of the industry, to facilitate and articulate your project strategy, methodology, goals and procurement through engagement with key stakeholders.


Project Planning

Project planning is at the heart of the project lifecycle and tells everyone involved where you’re going and how you’re going to get there. This can include Scope Documentation (list of goals, deliverables, tasks, deadlines and costs), Work Breakdown Structure (who is doing what), Communication Plan and a Risk Management Plan, as well as a clear set of milestones to ensure the project stays on track.

Project Feasibility

As a trusted, independent third party, Arei Designs can help determine your project viability and if any conditions need to be met before making your investment decision. We will gain accurate information based on a thorough review of specifications, licenses and permits, location and site visits, and financial feasibility analysis.

Project Approvals

Council applications have become increasingly complex and the red tape can be daunting. With the approval process taking 3-6 months and sometimes more, the success of the application is largely dependent on the quality of the plans and the application submitted. We present a fine balance between keeping costs in check and ensuring Council has the right information provided by suitably qualified consultants to guide your application through the approval process.

Value Engineering

This consultative approach leverages our extensive pre-construction services and enables us to provide ways to value engineer the best solutions for our clients through the entire project lifecycle. Constructability reviews, costs models and schedule development will help mitigate risk in early design concepts and minimise the need for costly change orders during the project.


With the Design Manager and Construction Manager working along with other trades from the beginning, the construction project will benefit from greater innovation in design and building methods, as well as an opportunity to resolve constructability issues before work commences.


How We Work

The Design Manager is the best placed person to coordinate the Design-Assist methodology to factor in pricing and buildability considerations during the design process.


Early Planning

By establishing the Design-Assist team during the design phase of the project, the owner has certainty that the team is designing and planning a building that can actually be built and will work for the budget.

Single Point of Contact

As your Design-Assist Manager, Arei Designs offers one point of contact for the Principle Contractor, consultants and suppliers on your project. We are experienced in working collaboratively to bring the best outcome for the owner.

Improved Communication

Communication is improved throughout the project by ensuring that all parties fully understand the goals and priorities, as well as the design and constructability aspects prior to works commencing. Having all parties on the same page from the beginning sets the stage for a seamless transition from design to build.
