  • Preparation of client brief
  • client & design team meetings

Construction Management Services

Our construction management services are suitable to clients who wish to appoint sub-contractors directly rather than appoint a traditional main contractor. The benefits of this are a quicker programme and more cost effective. Construction management is a procurement route in which the works are constructed by a number of different trade contractors. These trade contractors are contracted to the employer but managed by a construction manager. Construction Management services are designed for use on projects where separate trade contractors are appointed by the employer, with separate contractual responsibilities to construct the works. The construction manager is appointed by the employer to oversee the completion of the works in the capacity of employer’s agent. This involves issuing instructions, preparing certifications, administering contract conditions, and so on. The construction manager is generally appointed early in the design process so that their experience can be used to improve the cost and buildability of proposals as they develop, as well as to advise on packaging, and the selection of trade contractors.
