The Gatwick project

The Gatwick project is using a system of process mapping that is allowing it to get on with building work before the final design is 100% confirmed. 'We have split the building into elements and created a hierarchy for design decisions,' says Andrew Leckenby of Geoffrey Reid Associates.

This tells everyone what needs to be decided by when to allow them to get on with, and continue building.

'It is progressive fixity,' Leckenby says. And it is particularly useful for schemes with a retail element as trend-conscious retailers want to leave things until the last possible minute to decide on their preferred fit out.
