Pre-construction is a major area where we deliver exceptional value for our customers. Our dedicated cost-planning department informs design development with realistic and reliable budget advice. It uses live project information and a benchmarking database to provide early cost certainty and shorten pre-construction, while working closely with the supply chain to reduce waste in the design process.
- In-house design. Working with our design and supply chain partners as appropriate, our expert management team offers practical construction advice during the design process, reducing waste and cost, and driving out risk.
- Programme certainty. We develop and deliver against optimum programmes, enabling you to occupy or let the building against set dates, improve cash flow predictability, improve neighbour relations and liaise with third parties.
- Sustainability expertise. We can offer expert advice on cost, technology, planning, BREEAM targets, grants and incentives.
- Risk management. Our formal process gives you clarity and transparency, and is a proactive way to mitigate and manage risk in a structured way.
