Project Organisation

Appointed as principle contractor, we were responsible for managing the site safely in accordance with CDM and supplying a fully managed service delivering a high standard of workmanship. We liaised with tenants throughout the process and assisted the client to finalise design/concrete repair elements and develop the specification. We produced a full set of contractor’s proposals for this scheme which was signed off by the clients Architect.


We hosted weekly and monthly site meeting at our site cabins and produced our own reports detailing programme updates, handover information and tenant queries. We used RFI and delay and disruption schedules to ensure we maintained a proactive approach to solving problems. It was very important that our works were completed on time as the scheme was dependent upon external Eco funding, we achieved this through effective planning and management of our resources.


All works were carried out to the highest standards in line with the specifications. The completed works were signed off by the Engineer, Architect and SARH COW. We provided guarantees for the roofing, render and concrete repair works.
