Preparing projects for building work takes time, effort, skills and resources. It’s a crucial stage of any project, no matter how you intend to procure or build your project the better you prepare your pre-construction the better placed you will be for a project to be delivered smoothly at the build stage. We help our clients from the get-go, this includes introductions to professional services, briefing the design team and managing the design, consents / permissions, specialists, budgeting and contractor selection process. Our key services include:

  • Pre-Construction programme. A timeline that sets out and schedules who is responsible for specific tasks, how long they will taken. The programme is bespoke to your project and will set a target start date for the build.
  • Proactive Design Team Management. Projects always have multiple consultants (architects, engineers, designers, surveyors, specialist package installers) and this team must be managed along with the information flow that they will need to facilitate their work.
  • Utility Management. New mains infrastructure for gas, electric, water, broadband or alterations to existing supplies.

Bespoke services

We understand that building projects can be procured in a handful of ways, and that people have different levels of experience, time and contacts. This combined with the wide variety of construction methods, such as traditional build, timber frame off site fabrication or modular can change the dynamics of how a project is managed through pre-construction and build stage. We have experience of managing projects with these types of construction, and with clients who would like to be hands on or hands off.

We provide a flexible service to ensure that we are providing exactly what you need whilst giving you maximum value. Our services are built around those shown here, but they extend beyond this and our fee proposals include the detail.
