Construction Management

Construction management is a delivery route through which we can add tremendous value.

From negotiated contracts to design and build and fixed price contracting, we deliver projects the way that works best for our clients.

More and more often those clients are choosing construction management, a delivery route through which we can add tremendous value.

Construction Management plays to several of our great strengths: our partnering ethos, our open and transparent approach and our renowned managerial capabilities. 

In fact, we’ve worked on some of the most complex, multifaceted construction management projects delivered in the UK in recent years.

Focused on ensuring a ‘no surprises’ delivery, we fully integrate with client’s teams from day one to maximise opportunities for efficiencies, reduce risk and ensure quality is considered at every step of the process.

Our depth of experience and wide-ranging capabilities across the full project lifecycle enables us to add value from design, through procurement and on into delivery, bringing leadership and management across every element.

Managing all aspects of the project to ensure a successful outcome, this includes providing design and buildability advice and drawing on the skills of our in-house design team to develop solutions to improve sequence of construction and programme.

We help clients ensure they select the right supply chain with the appropriate level of expertise for their project, bringing our expertise in managing interfaces between packages to drive efficiencies, reduce costs and safeguard programme.

From developing procurement and logistics strategies to agreeing change management processes, establishing reporting structures and managing financial controls, our open and honest approach combined with our proven expertise builds the trust that underpins effective construction management.

 

 

A structured approach

From appointment our experienced professionals will integrate with your team to work collaboratively towards:

  • Producing a fully integrated programme, allowing the project team to monitor design, procurement and construction progress.

  • Creating project Health and Safety plans and initiatives.

  • Producing method statements and risk assessments for the work.

  • Attending design meetings to provide buildability, cost and programme advice.

  • Drawing on the expertise of our in-house technical team to devise solutions to improve both sequence of construction and programme in works related to ground and above ground.

  • Developing a procurement strategy. This encompasses the scope of work, market conditions and a supply chain capable of delivering the project. The strategy must also meet sustainability and environmental targets, and identify trades with the right level of expertise and financial stability.

  • Agreeing a project change management process.

  • Setting up a project risk and opportunity register.

  • Developing a logistics strategy.

  • Liaising with the local community and suppliers.

  • Agreeing a reporting structure and timetable that meets the client’s requirements.

Wherever possible, we set up a local project office to maximise collaboration with you, your design team, partners and the supply chain.

Transparency

A key critical success factor of any project is transparency. Our team shares information with the rest of the project team on matters such as:

  • Design information

  • Tender documentation

  • Tender returns

  • CM recommendations

  • Trade Contracts

  • Progress reporting

  • Defective work
  • Managing change

    Our ability to deal with change is one of our key strengths. Our change process makes it possible to deal with high value / high volume change. With the support of the client and design team, the process allows the client to make informed decisions.

    Risk, health and safety, quality control, financial management and workforce engagement are vital to ensure standards are achieved. In our experience, a holistic one-team ethos has a positive impact on safety, morale and the quality of work.
