How We Work

Partnering

A partnering approach

On every construction project, the strength of the relationship between the customer and construction partner has a direct bearing on its success. We therefore strive to create an open, collaborative environment on all our schemes.

The rise of collaborative contracts is in line with our own commitment to partnership working. Based on the formation of strong collaborative working relationships with customers, their advisors and our subcontractors at an early stage, this approach makes it much easier to accommodate challenges such as changing requirements, irregular workloads and difficult working environments.

Cutting costs and adding value

Customers can also benefit hugely from our input during the design phase with guidance on construction methods, materials, subcontractors and site set-up. The sooner we are involved, the sooner we can understand the particular challenges and put forward solutions. Potential issues can be pre-empted, helping drive down cost and build in value.

Above all, we believe that a strong partnership based on good communication results in a clear understanding of the customer’s objectives and a well-bonded team – helping bring about the perfect outcome for the project which is everyone’s goal.
