Hamilton intl. design Hamilton International Design consists of a team of dedicated professionals providing innovative design solutions for a broad range of projects; First Gulf Bank studio corporate affairs, banking, social infrastructure, hospitality, healthcare, industry, retail and showrooms being some of the sectors Hamilton have worked on in recent years. Hamilton International Design prides itself on a fresh and unique approach to all projects. The Design team at Hamilton bring a wealth of worldwide expertise enabling the team to explore ideas from other cultures and push the design limits by thinking individually and collectively, always arriving at a point that challenges creativity and design limits and also exceeding clients’ expectations. The team at Hamilton International Design have a vast knowledge of the Construction process and an unrivalled knowledge of the GCC market. This has allowed Hamilton to develop expertise in Value Engineering projects. Value Engineering is a systematic method to improve the ‘value’ of a design by using an examination of function and form. This method involves examining the materials, construction methods, and locally sourcing alternative products and materials to deliver a building, which is identical in look and feel to the original design but significantly less expensive resulting in massive savings to Hamilton’s clients. At Hamilton the focus is primarily on the ‘Total Customer Experience’ and through a series of debriefing sessions, Hamilton review all aspects of the job and take on board comments and feedback. This allows Hamilton to constantly upgrade and improve their services Hamilton International – Design studio 3

Hamilton International Fit-Out has also carried out a large number of banking projects – FGB, UAE Exchange, ADIB and Noor Islamic Bank were all clients in recent years. These projects have all highlighted the quality of work that Hamilton is capable of. The team at Hamilton International Fit Out have a vast knowledge of the Construction process and an unrivalled knowledge of the GCC market. This has allowed Hamilton to develop expertise in Value Engineering projects. Value Engineering is a systematic method to improve the ‘value’ of a design by using an examination of function and form.

  14. 14. What is VE? VE (Value Engineering), is a continuous review and refinement process of design and specification to improve performance, reliability, quality, safety, and life-cycle cost, which augments the design efforts from initial concept up to the issuance of the last construction variation. It is normal that the integration of a VE program will result in a project savings of 30% to 50%, and a functional design constructable within budget.

  18. 18. VE Success story… Formula 1 Yas Marina Circuit Abu Dhabi One example of VE was where the original construction cost of a major recently completed Hamilton project was in excess of 165 million. However, following a detailed study of the original design and construction processes, designers at Hamilton’s were able to save the Client over 50 million Dirhams without compromising the design intent of the building. The most important project in 2009 for HIH has been design and fit out work for the new Formula 1 venue,‘Yas Marina Circuit’ in Abu Dhabi. This has been a tremendously prestigious and exciting project.Yas Island staged its first race at the beginning of November – the final round of this year’s Grand Prix circuit. CWCT had the main contract and appointed Hamilton International to fit-out 25 separate buildings on the track, including the main administration building, media centre, team buildings, race control and the prestigious Shams Tower, from where the Royal family viewed the race. At the peak, we had upwards of 2000 operatives on site at any one time, including around 1000 of our own staff. We met a very tight schedule and budget and completed the project on time. One area of F1 which was a great success was the quality of the joinery work, which was manufactured at Hamilton’s joinery in DIP A particularly challenging . piece Hamilton’s manufactured was a feature element of wall-cladding, over 6 meters high, using the latest CNC routing technology to carve the names of F1 drivers throughout the years. The cladding feature formed a stunning backdrop to the media centre’s main reception. H a m i l t o n I n t e r n a t i o n a l – Va l u e E n g i n e e r i n g 33
