Why Collaboration Leads to Better Work

BY: ED THOMPSON MARCH 29TH, 2018

At Brick & Wonder, we believe in the power of community. In the worlds of real estate, architecture and industrial design a strong community can successfully foster collaboration, innovation and design excellence.

In projects large or small, every aspect of the design and planning process affects the final product. Teams and individuals with specialized skills take concepts from their sketch pads and convert them to detailed designs that evolve to become finished products. It follows, then, that any such process can only be as good as its weakest link.

Many projects represent a network of people working toward common goals. Sometimes the relationship between the work process and the finished product is very clear: an architect designs a house, for instance. In other cases the relationship is less obvious, though just as critical.

Many projects represent a network of people working toward common goals.

Consider, for instance, the lender who makes building the house possible, the accountant who manages cash-flow, the project manager that ensures the project runs smoothly and on-time, the legal team that draws up the contracts, and the insurer who underwrites the safety of the worksite for employees. Their contributions are meaningfully felt, though not as readily seen as the work of the craftsmen who build the kitchen cabinets, or the manufacturer that makes the tiles.

It’s clear that any worthwhile endeavor involves a great degree of collaboration. For the successful realization of design at the highest attainable standard, it is critical that all people and companies involved are not only great at what they do, but also great at working together. This is the difference between good projects and truly outstanding projects.

Teams and individuals with specialized skills take concepts from their sketch pads and convert them to detailed designs that evolve to become finished products.
