Connect Construction are able to assist the client early on in the design phase and tender the subcontractors on an open book basis. A Competitive Negotiation contract guarantees the cost and timeframe prior to commencing construction, eliminating this risk for the client.
This method allows the client to be involved in the tendering and ongoing development of the project. In a Construction Management Contract the fee is established as a fixed amount. Beyond this fee, everything else is ʺcost of the workʺ, providing complete transparency for the client. As a result, the Construction Manager and the client share a common objective to achieve the best price from the appropriate contractor(s) or supplier(s).
In establishing a lump sum bid, Connect Constructions will forecast the costs of labour and materials including overhead, profit and any risk it may envisage and add to it to their price. Connect Constructions are responsible for the construction of the project as the design phase is clear and concise.
Where project design and scope requires progressive development whilst constructing a project, a Cost Plus contract may be beneficial to the client.
Decisions made at the early stages of the design process have the most impact on the success of the project. As the designers and contractors work together from the start, the design effort can be essentially reduced. This is true not only with respect to satisfying the program needs, but also in terms of establishing a projects’ budget and schedule as well.
Connect Constructions offers an early involvement role as part of the pre-construction phase/design phase. We are able to save the client time by using a progressively tendered approach, whereby the contractor(s) begin works on each phase of the construction as soon as the design for that phase has been finalised.
