Our enhanced construction service is bringing new methods, new technology and new services to give you a more efficient and cost effective service.

Constructability in design

Our construction and commissioning engineers form part of the project teams from the start, to ensure that constructability is considered early in the design stage. This is the best way to bring about the most cost effective and safest methods of construction, installation and completion.

Work planning

We use a comprehensive portfolio of processes and data management tools to define the work and ensure all necessary materials, plant, equipment, tooling, manpower and specialist resource requirements have been identified and put in place.

Work execution

We manage discrete construction and commissioning activities during the preparation phase, execution phase or as part of a fully integrated construction and commissioning service. Getting the right people in place in good time is just one of the ways we deliver successfully.

The best way to ensure effective and safe execution of the work scope is good organisation and control of worksites, personnel, materials and equipment in accordance with the project plan. Our detailed field planning makes sure that pre-execution activities, permit raising, risk assessments and toolbox talks optimise the project resources and enable timely and accurate progress reporting and time writing in order to update the plan.
