DMA has a longstanding relationship with Coles and our ability to successfully follow their client brief to deliver a scope of works ranging from refurbishments, expansions and constructions has led to repeat work and seamless knowledge transfer from project to project. The professional services DMA has provided across these jobs has varied from traditional design and document, design and construction tender as well as peer reviews and audits which has enabled DMA to tackle each new job with a deep understanding of the client and deliver continuous improvement.
Working across a large-scale project like a supermarket is not without its challenges. The most common issue DMA faced while working for Coles was coordinating with other disciplines and other members of the broader project team. The coordination issues are particularly present in plant rooms and on the ceiling space with signage, lighting and fire detection, as well as within refrigeration areas. This presented an opportunity for DMA to utilise modelling technology to improve planning and transparency across the project while reducing costly delays.
