Our goal is to maximise the benefits new technology and new thinking can bring to our customers
For all forms of off-site construction we take an approach based on ‘pre-construction for production, not construction’. This makes us the perfect partner for customers, manufacturers and suppliers who are looking to work with a turnkey principal contractor. BOPAS accredited, we generate tangible efficiencies by charging no OH&P on any pre-manufactured value.
Alongside traditional contracting arrangements, we are well versed in alternative contracting and risk arrangements. Aligned with our transparency values, these approaches can ensure the right behaviours from all parties and contribute to highly successful project delivery.
Our skills and capabilities are as a construction manager and contractor who understands the manufacturing process and can manage all the required interfaces. This makes us the ideal partner during the important pre-construction phase of a project – finding the right mix of processes, systems, products, and components to deliver the pre-planning and viability outcomes our customers need.
For all forms of off-site construction, we take an approach based on ‘pre-construction for production, not construction’. This makes us the perfect partner for customers, manufacturers, and suppliers. Ultimately, we let manufacturers be manufacturers, and manage the interface risks between the site and their products.
We work with our customers on creating clearly defined and easy to deliver procurement, delivery and asset management strategies, providing straightforward and commercially astute technical advice.
We are exploring the sector and sub-sector elements that deserve more contractor input. Where we find opportunity we will invest time, resources and capital.
Areas we are currently looking at include: adaptable, responsive, circular economy assets in the low-rise residential or commercial office sectors; digitalisation of delivery processes to support automation; and, delivery of air rights structures or strategies for streamlined delivery of assets in the assisted living sector. Whatever the R&D opportunity, we always welcome a conversation.
Our skill as principal contractor is to be an integrator – bringing all the strands together, removing friction, and managing the interfaces, both physical and contractual, that underpin successful delivery.
