Change Management

Jason Green and our Mobilisation Team managed the design coordination and procurement of the scheme. This team includes personnel from Technical, Planning, Design, Estimating, Procurement and HSQE Departments. All skilled/qualified in managing similar works. We collaborated with the client and Abbey Grange Academy to ensure all parties were 100% satisfied that we had a comprehensive understanding of the scheme. We engaged with the students to explain what works would be happening and held a training session to teach them about the dangers of a live construction site. 

Cost Management

Our design teams, Quantity Surveyors and Estimators made recommendations to bring efficiencies to the contract including:

  • Rationalise designs to deliver the most efficient layouts
  • Using economies of scale via our Supply Chain partners
  • Using the latest, most cost-effective products

A Compensation Event Tracker was used to monitor the ‘actual -v- potential’ savings. This tracks the effect of changes to provide STG and the client with ‘real-time’ visibility of the final account figure. This delivered over £100k savings, making the scheme viable and allowing STG to commence work. A Compensation Event Tracker was used to provide ‘real-time’ visibility of the final account figure.
