Early Contractor Involvement

On time, on budget with defect free delivery and minimum variations are the key outcomes for successfully delivered construction projects. These outcomes should be at the top of every client’s mind when procuring a contractor’s services.

To achieve these key outcomes the procurement strategy adopted should consider the benefits of engaging a contractor during the preliminary design phase when their advice will have the greatest impact. In particular, the contractor should be held accountable for providing programming, value engineering and buildability advice to align with these key project delivery outcomes.

Early engagement also has the distinct advantage of facilitating a collaborative relationship between the contractor and the project’s design and management teams, which leads to a sharedcommitment for the achievement of the project’s goals.
