The job of a Design Coordinator is exciting, challenging and ultimately rewarding, as you play a crucial role in the final product of the completed building project.
While there might be numerous designers involved in any given project, the Design Coordinator must take each designer’s contribution and integrate them into a single, seamless design that is ready for construction.
Aside from removing any clashes in design components, this process reduces costs, delays and ideally it prevents any issues from emerging during construction.
