A contractor had to deliver three new build homes in West London with only a nine month construction period and a two week mobilisation period.
We created an eight month programme to ensure the project was achievable and put in place contingency plans to mitigate delays.
The project was delivered on time and 20 percent below budget.
A closer look at our approach
During the short mobilisation period, we produced a detailed construction programme, including an accelerated eight month version to ensure the project could be delivered on time, without compromising on quality.
We identified the required design information and subcontractor schedules and also prepared packages for all of the major suppliers.
With this information to hand, we worked seamlessly alongside the contractor and dove straight into the project from day one on site.
We carried out bi-weekly reviews and site meetings to ensure everything ran smoothly and to plan, while closely managing the design team to ensure the remaining design work was provided on time.
Each subcontractor and supplier was engaged and employed in good time to ensure timely delivery of their work and to keep the flow and pace of the project in line with the schedule we mapped out.
During the project, a number of major risks to the delivery time were identified. That’s when our contingency plans came into play, preventing these risks from causing further problems.
WEEK MOBILISATION PERIOD
Commercial building conversion into flats
Our build cost review enabled the contractor to overcome cash-flow problems via renegotiation of agreed costs with their client.
Final account settlement of a residential project
We reviewed the account, resolved ambiguities and settled the account, including the disputed variations costs.
