Benefits of a design and build competition

Back to Resources

A successful design and build competition can provide significant benefits to stakeholders:

  • Helps to deliver on community aspirations for a liveable and attractive sustainable city.
  • Provides a local example of best practice urban design to encourage uptake in other developments.
  • Adds to the vitality of the city by encouraging new ideas and fresh approaches.
  • Provides a consultation and communication platform to explore new ways of living with communities, as well as showcasing what can be achieved.
  • Promotes industry innovation and learning by providing a living laboratory of sustainable building design incorporating aspects such as prefabrication, modular design and green technologies.
  • Provides an opportunity for central government agencies to work collaboratively with local authorities and industry stakeholders in setting the standard for new developments.
