What is construction management?
Construction management is a procurement route that uses individual subcontractors instead of one main contractor. The construction manager acts as a consultant to negotiate best value for each package and then manages the delivery of the project through coordination of all subcontractors.
This route provides a professional delivery of the project in terms of time, cost and quality and overall reduced construction costs. We provide reliable budgets which are then closely managed throughout the project with monthly cost reports and regular communication. The construction manager works closely with the design team throughout the project to mitigate construction design issues early and assists with elements of the project with subcontract design to ensure a smooth design delivery.
Why construction management?
Early involvement of the construction manager enables subcontractors to be appointed in good time whilst design is being finalised to reduce the overall construction programme.
Cost is the key driver for construction management, as the client effectively doesn't pay the overheads and profit of a large main contractor. Through an experienced project team the client gets the benefit of a high end supply chain with only management costs to pay, instead of management and profit.
Quality of work is assured through our carefully selected subcontract chain that has been rigorously tested and also through the provision of a contractual relationship between client and subcontractor ensures high quality delivery is achieved.
