The Service

Knowing that ‘one size doesn’t fit all’ for construction management, our contracting service can be procured under two-stage, fixed price, traditional or management forms of contract. We have experienced every form of contract and can confidently offer the same quality of service whatever the choice of procurement route: from early involvement through a two-stage route, to getting involved once the design, costs and programme have been fixed under a traditional single-stage contract, or to the early buildability and programming input of a management contracting approach.

We understand that each project is different; simply put, the procurement method needs to be innovative, efficient and flexible enough to deliver the best outcome for the client. Our response is a tailored model for each client that drives best long-term value and ensures continuous improvement.

Innovation: Moving to Industry 4.0

The Role

The role of the commercial manager in a contracting capacity covers all financial aspects of a project, from bidding for work through to the close out of final accounts when the project is completed.

  • Assisting in procurement

Placements working in commercial management will be given guidance in starting to work towards their professional qualification with either the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) or Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), depending on your degree.
