Matching the client’s capability
Now at a key design stage with a very savvy client of their own, our client felt that they needed some additional support for the next stages to get the project to start on site.
The end user was a global cost consultancy and project management practice. There were significant challenges in accommodating their needs as a client whilst developing robust design content, clear employer’s requirements and a detailed cost plan.
They came to us as they’d worked with us before and knew Mark had the right experience and knowledge to take on a project of this scale and work with a demanding Project Director.
We were able to support their internal team, providing them with a senior level of construction and project management resource. Their objective was to safeguard the progress of the project by matching their client’s capability.
Managing multiple stakeholders
Our brief was to manage the necessary tasks against the project programme to deliver successful outputs in line with the client expectations and RIBA Stages 2 to 4. This involved the coordination of all stakeholder requirements to formulate a design concept in line with budgetary limits.
We had to quickly establish new working relationships with key team members to define effective roles and responsibilities. We coordinated the specialist design elements, working with the associated specialist consultants and key supply chain partners. The design process was fully evaluated against ongoing client needs, across technical disciplines and priced in detail to create a compliant proposal.
Implementing construction expertise
Mark was able to deliver senior level experience, aware of the design and cost consultancy role but also mindful of the effects and consequences for them as a business.
We worked with them to reduce the build complexity, advance the specialist technical design to minimise any design coordination problems. We assisted in the design development process, being mindful of employer’s requirements, stakeholder interests and project budget.
