For projects that are complex and potentially controversial co-design offers a better way of working with communities to implement your project.

The main benefits of Co-design are:

  • Relationships and trust are built throughout the process

  • Local and diverse knowledge is valued

  • Early opponents often become advocates of the process and outcomes.

  • Substantial project savings as the project is more likely to be delivered on time and within budget (by avoiding ongoing protests, legal costs, and political interventions)

  • A more enjoyable, satisfying process for all concerned (even despite some inevitable challenges as people learn to work together)
