Building Contractors

We have extensive experience of working for contractors in a variety of scenarios and increasingly we are working directly for contractors and becoming an integral part of bidding design and build teams.

As a team member on a bidding Design and Build team, we are:

  • Fully committed to winning – we are not filling a gap to see how the contractor gets on. We only accept a place with like minded team members.
  • Testing every aspect of an existing Stage C or D design to find savings.
  • Testing every aspect of the Pre-Planning and supporting technical documents to see if we can improve the design criteria.
  • Producing a full design – to win we must know with surety that we have the most economical design, we are unable to do this without fully designing it. Design estimation will ultimately be inefficient (safe design) or higher risk (estimated optimum design) for the contractor.
  • Producing full drawings – we need to communicate the design at bidding stage and demonstrate to the team marking bids that this is a comprehensive proposal that has been fully engineered to enable a winning price.
  • Working on a no-win no-fee basis.
