Designers have a lot of impact on the price, on the construction costs, says Iyad Sabouni, vice-president at Aecom. “With all the circumstances around us right now, we at Aecom, and I think other parties in the industry, are rethinking the whole process. The process of designing 10 years ago doesn’t work anymore right now. Most of the contracts we sign have a design-to-budget clause … and the design-to-budget clause with a tight budget pushes us to be very innovative.” Source: Mashreq Live Broadcast
