Team Structure

At Aedes, we work in a team with two main disciplines for every project. Design and Execution. The design discipline is represented by a developer and execution discipline is represented by a project manager. These two disciplines work together from the start. The developer is responsible for the total development and is leading during the design phase up to and including permits. During the realization, the project manager is leading. The focus for the developer is therefore at the beginning and that of the project manager at the middle to the end of the project. Both remain involved throughout the entire process. Team effort between these two disciplines is therefore of the utmost importance.
