Tender Production / Procurement
Working closely with our designers, our project team turns the detailed design into tender documentation and issue directly to Client nominated or to our own preferred contractors for accurate contract pricing.
Using standard forms of contract we pull the works into logical packages ensuring full contractual accountability and cost certainty. We frequently procure furniture and other long-lead items earlier in order to safeguard the project timescales.
Once contractors are appointed we need to ensure that they do what they’ve said they are going to do. We also need to liaise and co-ordinate with the landlord’s Building Management as well as report to you on progress against budget and programme.
Even with the best laid plans things change; these changes are sometimes client driven and sometimes circumstantial, thus our role is not just about managing the project it’s about managing expectations in an often fluid environment.
H&S and Quality Assurance
Nothing is more important than the health and safety of everyone involved on the project and so we not only ensure close adherence to the design intent but also to local authority guidelines and the landlord’s H&S requirements.
We control Construction Design and Management (CDM) on every project where this is a statutory requirement employing recognised consultants to advise us before and during the works.
3rd Party and Utilities Liaison
Whilst our design team manage the Planning and Building Control aspects of the installation, our project managers provide the interface between all relevant parties, ensuring adherence to quality objectives, HSE directives and building regulations on site.
We liaise with utility vendors and ensure that their delivery and services are factored into the project programme – the key here often being telecommunications providers.
Relocation Planning and Execution
Expedite’s attention to detail in the careful planning of business relocation reaps rewards time and time again.
Our relocation team follow a detailed process and dovetail with our project managers to execute the physical relocation liaising with Client IT representatives and 3rd party support organisations.
