Hamilton’s story…

“WHY WE ARE THE BEST AT WHAT WE DO”

DESIGN AND FIT–OUT

“WHY WE ARE THE BEST AT WHAT WE DO” DESIGN AND FIT–OUT Richard Hamilton, founder of

Richard Hamilton, founder of Hamilton International Holdings,

arrived in Dubai in 1992 and formed Hamilton Design Studio.

Over time, he realised there was a gap in the market for qual-

ity fit-out contractors to ensure good delivery on Hamilton’s

designs. Hamilton began offering Clients a total design and

build service.

Hamilton International has grown into a respected diverse inte-

rior design and fit out business. The dynamic interconnected

specialist teams focus and collaborate to deliver exceptional

Hamilton International Design consists of a team of dedicated professionals providing innovative design solutions for a broad range of projects;

corporate affairs, banking, social infrastructure, hospitality, healthcare, industry,

retail and showrooms being some of the sectors Hamilton have worked on in

recent years.

Hamilton International Design prides itself on a fresh and unique approach to

all projects.The Design team at Hamilton bring a wealth of worldwide expertise

enabling the team to explore ideas from other cultures and push the design

limits by thinking individually and collectively, always arriving at a point that

challenges creativity and design limits and also exceeding clients’ expectations.

The team at Hamilton International Design have a vast knowledge of the

Construction process and an unrivalled knowledge of the GCC market. This

has allowed Hamilton to develop expertise in Value Engineering projects. Value

Engineering is a systematic method to improve the ‘value’ of a design by using

an examination of function and form. This method involves examining the

materials, construction methods, and locally sourcing alternative products and

materials to deliver a building, which is identical in look and feel to the original

design but significantly less expensive resulting in massive savings to Hamilton’s

clients.

At Hamilton the focus is primarily on the ‘Total Customer Experience’ and

through a series of debriefing sessions, Hamilton review all aspects of the job

and take on board comments and feedback.This allows Hamilton to constantly

upgrade and improve their services

1. Receipt of information

2. Check for completeness

3. Review documentation and design

4. Meet with client to understand constraints and objectives for the project

5. Take guidance on important areas of the design and life cycle requirements

6. Ensure functionality of the project is fully understood

7. Understand how the design interfaces with other elements of the overall project

8. Internal works shop to cover construction issues, design , program and commercial factors

9. Review of the design to agree the areas of design that should remain untouched and the areas most likely to effect a cost saving. This selective approach ensure the design integrity is not compromised in the recommendations

10. Stakeholders on the VE process make recommendations which are tested in the market as required to ensure validity.

11. Recommendations and report is prepared for issue to the client for review. Provisional costs and delivery details are prepared to provide a guidance on ball park potential savings

12. Workshop is arranged with the client and other stakeholders in the project to review the preliminary VE recommendations.

13. Actions agreed and in principle agreement to the approach is provided. At this stage the procurement methodology must be agreed as this could potentially affect further cost saving opportunities

14. The agreed VE approach is then validated and a preliminary elemental cost plan is prepared to demonstrate overall project value. A high level program is agreed in coordination with the main project program.The high level program will indicate the date required to order to comply with the project time frame

15. Samples are obtained of all VE option materials along with proof of specification compliance.The samples are signed off by authorised person in the clients’ project team project team.

16. The cost plan is signed off by the client and other project stakeholders.

17. Design and other activities proceed as per the project plan

There are other processes that can be followed and the process will largely be dictated by the clients requirements and the overall project set up and objectives.The procurement strategy will determine how the VE is approached as the methods will change depending upon whether this is done by the designer and the work is subsequently tendered or if the project is a design build.

Hamilton Design have undertaken numer- ous projects where the cost of constructing a project has been significantly reduced through examining the materials, construc- tion methods and design of a building,

using locally sourced alternative products and materials to deliver a result,

which is identical in look and feel to the original design, but significantly less

expensive to construct. It is a primary tenet of value engineering that basic

VE Workshops are conducted using a multi- disciplined team approach which include such professionals as design, architectural, structural, civil, mechanical and electrical engineers as deemed relevant for the disciplines being studied.

This structure allows the involvement of the Owner, Design Consultant and

PHASE I

PRE-STUDY PREPARATION

Coordination of the VE effort is vital to a project’s success. Clear communication between Design Consultants and the Owner’s representatives, well defined shared responsibilities and a constant focus on the goal of the VE effort will produce results.

PHASE II

VE STUDY

Value Engineering is a systematized approach for isolating high cost areas in design and arriving at the best balance between cost, performance and quality.The basic VE job plan consists of the following five stages:

1 Information Stage

• Gather all available facts

• Build a cost model

• Select components of the model having the highest potential cost savings Analyse functions of selected items

• Allocate the current estimated cost to each function and determine the basic function worth

2 Creative Stage Generate a wide variety of ways to provide the basic functions and any required secondary functions by using brainstorming techniques.

3 Analysis Stage

Alternative design proposals are evaluated on a life cycle cost basis utilizing cost estimates approaching the same level of detail as the current cost estimate for the existing design.

4 Development Stage

• List all alternatives or combinations of alternatives which have a significant cost savings potential.

• Obtain additional information on remaining alternatives such as Life Cycle Cost analysis.

• Seek technical assistance from suppliers and specialists.

5 Presentation Stage Select the best alternatives to meet the basic functional requirements.

PHASE III

POST VE STUDY

Prepare a formal VE report summarizing results of the study including the following:

Success

story…

One example of VE was where the original construction cost of a major recently

completed Hamilton project was in excess of 165 million. However, following a

detailed study of the original design and construction processes, designers

at Hamilton’s were able to save the Client over 50 million Dirhams without

compromising the design intent of the building.

The most important project in 2009 for HIH has been design and fit out work

for the new Formula 1 venue,‘Yas Marina Circuit’ in Abu Dhabi.

This has been a tremendously prestigious and exciting project.Yas Island staged

its first race at the beginning of November – the final round of this year’s Grand

Prix circuit. CWCT had the main contract and appointed Hamilton International

to fit-out 25 separate buildings on the track, including the main administration

building, media centre, team buildings, race control and the prestigious Shams

Tower, from where the Royal family viewed the race.

At the peak,we had upwards of 2000 operatives on site at any one time,including

around 1000 of our own staff. We met a very tight schedule and budget and

completed the project on time.

One area of F1 which was a great success was the quality of the joinery work,

which was manufactured at Hamilton’s joinery in DIP. A particularly challenging

piece Hamilton’s manufactured was a feature element of wall-cladding, over 6

meters high, using the latest CNC routing technology to carve the names of F1

drivers throughout the years.The cladding feature formed a stunning backdrop

to the media centre’s main reception.
