Build - Allow Changing Output of Multiple Projects to save time

I would love a setting to be able to set all projects to a common build output as per https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms165411.aspx

We have 100+ projects in our solution, and ~50 nuget packages in some projects, therefore building the whole solution takes a long time! A lot of that time is spent on just copying files from one location to another! Even on an SSD!

As I am in a enterprise environment, we cannot turn off Anti-Virus, and therefore each copy causes the AntiVirus to kick and also use up Disk IO + CPU to scan that library! Making it even slower!

One way around is to to output all files to a common location, therefore hopefully only 150 file copies, rather than 150^x file copies!

Ideally this would be a solution level setting, and possibly user dependant so that I don't ***** up other devs environments on the project?
