For many years, the early design phase of a new building project was primarily a job for architects who, once they had finished their design, would pass it on to the engineers. They would then take a look at the design and start pointing out what had to be changed. “We have turned the way of working around. By joining forces with the architects from the very beginning, our technical knowledge enhances the design instead of limiting it. The design process becomes much smoother and the client simply gets a better product,” says Sune Wendelboe, managing director of MOE in Norway.
