The Problem

The construction industry has a big data problem. Not when it comes to creating it but collecting it and putting it to good use.

Common symptoms identified included:

  • Low productivity
  • Low predictability
  • Structural and leadership fragmentation
  • Low margins, adversarial pricing models and financial fragility
  • Lack of collaboration and improvement culture
  • Lack of R&D + Investment in Innovation
  • Poor Industry image

Cost-Saving Calculator

Knowledge is valuable, and it’s a shame to let good ideas go to waste. Unshared knowledge costs money.

While we’ve all learned to respect the value of data, the value of unique knowledge is generally overlooked. Why? Because unique knowledge is seldom quantified. We’re accustomed to using and sharing it informally, so we don’t think about trying to measure or assess it more discreetly.

If our unique knowledge never exists outside our own heads, then sometimes our coworkers will simply have to do without it. That puts a big damper on productivity — which, hour by hour, has a significant impact on your organisation or project team’s bottom line.

So what is the opportunity cost of unique knowledge within your organisation, project team or discipline? Use this calculator to estimate the cost.

How it works

Dream it

The catalyst for the project – the why? The cornerstone to the process is understanding your vision, in whatever shape or form it takes. This includes identifying what has triggered the need for a project and what the project must deliver. We also identify the benefits and outcomes that the project must deliver.

Key outputs include:

  • Project mandate
  • Project needs / key success drivers
  • Strategic brief incl. Sustainability Requirements
  • Outline business case

Test it

We move to test and verify the “Dream-it” ambitions for the project. This is achieved by developing and evolving the brief and business case and aligning these with the preferred option(s) for delivering the desired outcomes for the project.

Key outputs include:

  • Option appraisals
  • Exemplars / benchmarks
  • Feasibility study
  • Project brief
  • Extended Outline business case
  • Project Stage health check

Define it

We now establish the technical brief and specification for the project. This translates the strategically developed business case, strategic and project brief from you – the Client, into the design, function and key performance parameters for the project.

Key outputs include:

  • Site appraisal(s)
  • Masterplan(s)
  • Technical brief incl. Project, Sustainability and Quality aspiration outcomes
  • Planning requirements
  • Development schedule
  • Project success factors
  • Consultant appointments
  • Surveys

Plan it

The unique, transient nature of projects means that a strategy, and a plan for their execution, has to be developed. A project that is properly planned will have a far greater chance of success than a poorly planned project.

Key outputs include:

  • Framework for Success (Key success + Benefits)
  • Project Execution Plan / Management Plan
  • Procurement strategy
  • Cost model (Capital + Operational)
  • Project schedule / programme
  • Project Stage health check

Design it

Turning the vision into reality, the design process is engaged to develop the concept through planning, tender and construction phase information. This includes the evolution of specification, materials, construction methodology and operational requirements.

Key outputs include:

  • Design responsibility matrix
  • Key design stage documentation (Concept | Developed | Technical | Construction)
  • Planning Approval process
  • Cost Model, Estimate and Plan(s)
  • Pre-Construction / Construction Programme(s)
  • Opportunity / Risk management
  • Project Stage health check

Buy it

The procurement of advisers, consultants and other specialists along with constructors, suppliers and manufacturers will progress concurrently. In tandem with the Design process, the route to procurement of a construction project is predominantly about risk and value – how risk is apportioned and how value is secured.

Key outputs include:

  • Procurement strategy
  • Building Contract strategy
  • Supply chain research / analysis
  • Tender documentation incl. Tender Queries (TQ’s)
  • Contract documentation incl. amendments
  • Project Stage health check

Build it

A step change in the project profile – where the vision emerges as reality. We now pivot to the construction phase, which may include off site fabrication, manufacturing and  assembly, enabling works or on-site construction. Project expenditure increases significantly whilst the ability to influence the outcome reduces.

Key outputs include:

  • Project Progress reports
  • Financial reports incl. cashflow / drawdown
  • Contract administration (all disciplines)
  • Change management / variation controls
  • Construction opportunities and risks
  • Construction programme
  • Asset management plan
  • Project Stage health check

Use it

A significant period of time will have elapsed from the original dream being experienced to the project being realised. The wants, needs and benefits will have changed with significant learning, knowledge and information captured. The operational value (and cost) of the built asset is now at its highest and being captured.

Key outputs include:

  • Snagging / Defects schedule(s)
  • Project evaluation
  • Post-occupancy assessment(s)
  • Dynamic user experience feedback
  • Operational data
  • Asset register / management plan
  • Actual v Planned analysis
