Working with us
NXT demonstrates to project owners that they will receive a higher quality product in less time than a conventional build. The NXT™ Building System improves project efficiency by simplifying the building process from design to completion.
Globally, barriers to collaboration in construction have led to increases in price, wastage and time delays as projects continue to be delivered through a disaggregated approach with individual stakeholders who lack a systematic way to share information.
NXT’s collaboration model removes the incredible amount of inefficiency that exists on conventional construction sites globally. Traditional construction is complex, requiring highly skilled, specialised personnel. This often results in a lack of communication between parties as each specialisation speaks their own language.
NXT simplifies the building process by connecting each stakeholder on a project, while the NXT™ Building System enables them to communicate in a common language, reducing complexity – and therefore cost and time – across the project. It is sophisticated simplicity.
By implementing the NXT™ Building System, project owners have a precisely engineered solution where every step of the traditional construction process is brought forward. This way, key stakeholders across the construction environment collaborate from the beginning and are accountable for delivering projects to standard, on-time and on-budget.
Implementation is hassle-free. NXT facilitates and controls the building process, costs, time and quality with its fully-integrated assembly solution.
Our project delivery model can be summarised as follows:
NXT has developed and owns the NXT™ Building System technologies and provides products, licences and services to apply the NXT™ Building System to projects.
NXT’s role is to act as Lead Consultant to project owners and developers and to co-ordinate and manage a project.
✓ Single point of contact for client with NXT as Lead Consultant
✓ Project design, documentation and specification
✓ Appointment of qualified, experienced and reputable building firms to undertake building and assembly utilising their building licence
✓ Close management and oversight of projects to ensure successful implementation, manufacturing, assembly, maintenance of project delivery schedules
✓ and quality control
✓ Co-ordinating and managing relationships, warranties and insurances between the client and builder, sub-contractors (manufacturers) and consultants
✓ Delivery of the completed build to the client as a turnkey solution
