Project homes vs high-end houses: Is there a difference in the engineering?

Ask an architect what the differences are between the type of house they design and a standard project home offered by the volume builders, and they’ll give you a long (and worthwhile) list.  Apart from the obvious factors and advantages of a bespoke design that is custom-tailored to the client’s needs, they might also cite the more efficient use of space and circulation; the attention to solar aspect and natural ventilation; the focus on insulation and colours; the attention to detail; and the vastly superior quality of the finishes, fittings, and overall aesthetic.   Not to mention the fact that the custom builder who builds the architecturally-designed house will undertake and complete the construction in a very different manner to the volume builder that supplies the turnkey project home.
