Supply Chain

Our supply chain management offers you better underlying value than the competition!

There is ample evidence that working in a positive and collaborative way with companies that you ‘supply to’ and ‘buy from’ is good for business. Construction companies that work in this way are seeing the benefits both for themselves and their clients. Supply chain management is the formalised process that gives structure to these arrangements.

Products and services provided by the companies in a construction project supply chain typically account for about 80% of the cost of the project. The way in which those products and services are procured and managed has a profound effect on the outcome of the project – not only in terms of profitability for all parties, but also the way in which the completed facility meets the client’s justifiable expectations of cost, quality and functionality.

The benefits of using our services in the supply chain include:

  • Reduced real costs, with margins maintenance .
  • An incentive to remove waste from the process .
  • Greater certainty of out-turn costs.

  • Delivery of better underlying value to the client .
  • More repeat business with key clients .
  • Greater confidence in longer-term planning

Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Why Use BIM?

We Bring a project to life with BIM (building information modeling) and VDC (Virtual design and construction). Thanks to the use of BIM technology, even complex models become easy to generate.

There is no better feeling than providing your team with great information when they need it most.

When construction begins, the amount of information that you and your trade partners have generated is growing at a very fast rate. Your team on the ground is also having to deal with a lot of information and managing a lot of moving parts. The goal is to make your information and understanding of the project accessible and easily digestible by the team.

With BIM we incorporate people and technology to streamline time and cost, and improve efficiency in builds including skyscrapers, hospitals, office and residential buildings.

What are the benefits of BIM?

Modernises the bidding process basing it on accurate take-offs of the building materials :

With a BIM model that includes comprehensive 3D modelling of all structures and MEP systems, building owners are able to evaluate bids fairly with a quantity survey, costed line by line. The total bid price will therefore reflect the actual costs of the building materials rather than estimates.

Can significantly lower carbon emissions during construction:

Building owners today prioritise sustainability. A quantity take-off based on a 3D BIM model, instead of 2D drawings, provides far more accurate results. This empowers architects and contractors to better define the exact quantities of building materials required.

Optimising MEP systems in the design phase lowers electricity and water consumption during operations :

When the product manufacturers’ specifications are rolled into the BIM ecosystem early in the design phase, the MEP systems can be tested and designs can be revised easily.

Improves the experience of the occupants in the building:

An accurate BIM model of a building makes it easier to obtain critical stakeholder feedback through informative previews and virtual walk-throughs.

Facilitates communication during construction:

With BIM, all changes such as timings, schedules, availability of materials and the right specialist teams can be coordinated through digital applications and mobile devices in real-time, keeping all stakeholders informed.

Cost control :

BIM enables the first version of a building to be analyses, tested, and analyses again. The design can be iterated and evolved many times over. Through this process, each iteration is better than the last and it will result in a vastly improved building once the foundations are dug..

Enables predictive maintenance :

BIM helps building owners achieve a level of predictive maintenance, meaning that unplanned outages can be reduced, while maintenance cycles can be carefully planned. This provides greater precision in facility management budgeting.

Lowers the life-time costs of a building:

the promise of BIM is that by shifting some capital expenditure to design, and increasing that 1% by a small amount, owners can reduce the 70% of costs that is used on maintenance.
