Our involvement early in a project is beneficial for many reasons and saves time and money down the line. Not least is the advice we can give on the selection and use of natural stone, terracotta and faience drawing on our wealth of knowledge and a wide and diverse range of trusted suppliers. We can arrange visits to quarries, provide samples, technical data, testing and advise on lead times and availability of materials.
PLANNING AND PROGRAMMING
We will advise on planning and programme in the early stages of a project and will produce a programme and logistics plan, along with any other required information as part of a competitive tender process. Once our Delivery team is on board our Managers will produce detailed programmes for design, manufacture and installation giving key dates for information, testing and handovers.
COST PLAN AND TECHNICAL ADVICE
Our estimators can assist the Client’s consultants to develop and update project cost plans and budgets. Our design team can advise on buildability and value engineering solutions to create and provide efficiency in the detailed designs of not just the masonry, but also the primary structure and coordinated works. Early involvement with our specialist staff during the project feasibility and preconstruction phases will undoubtedly benefit the project.
