EARLY CONTRACTOR INVOLVEMENT (ECI)
Some projects, particularly complex builds and large developments, require early advice in order to ‘de-risk’ the project, calculate better bottom lines and integrate additional value into the project. We provide early involvement in both structured and informal roles. Early contractor involvement can be the determining factor in a successful, problem-free build.
Value management is the methodology required to maximise value for money while maintaining the architectural vision of a development.
When it comes to facilitating collaborative VM processes whilst maintaining design intent, our team is second to none. We are a trusted partner in VM and highly experienced at working collaboratively with clients and consultants to achieve their architectural vision within budget.
Our risk management practices and processes are undertaken at all stages of the project, from tender through to completion, ensuring international standards for risk management are adhered to.
We utilise digital systems to assess, manage and monitor risk, control, treatment and compliance items.
We manage development costs using real time systems that control budgets and report accurately on all costs.
Expenditure, budgets and forecasts are updated regularly and shared with the developer throughout the program.
We use our expertise in design management and construction to assist developers with feasibility assessments of construction costs, estimates, the program and site constraints.
Prior to sales campaigns we can also help developers maximise their returns by thoroughly assessing the projects materials selection, marketing imagery and contract of sales.
Kapitol Group can leverage its major project heritage to provide constructibility advice and reports for any scale of project.
