Construction Management from an MTP perspective is a procurement route that provides Clients with complete control of their project facilitated by a team of experienced Main Contractor specialists.
The essential function of MTP is to provide consultancy and management services with Single Point responsibility of the project from pre-construction through to completion of the defect's liability period.
All construction works are completed by Trade Contractors, directly appointed by the Client following a comprehensive selection process and recommendation by MTP.
MTP oversee all trade package appointments to ensure that programme, quality and performance is maintained. Our QS partner, CS2, will certify monthly progress payments/final accounts.
The Consultant team is appointed separately by the Client and operates under the leadership of MTP.
This structure allows the Client to focus on strategic matters and manage internal stakeholder aspirations.
Programme– Reduction in overall programme, increased level of transparency and predictability.
Client Changes –Increased flexibility to incorporate changes without punitive cost and programme extensions.
Increased quality– Trade contractor selection based on relevant experience and ability to deliver the project, not exclusively cost driven, plus there is a greater visibility of the products that are selected and used which allows for the whole life cost of the project to be considered.
Collaboration– Significant change in project culture that encourages problem solving, empowerment and accountability, rather than confrontation and distrust.
Design Development-Early trade package appointments add significant benefit to the design process, which in conjunction with the MTP team brings specialist expertise to reduce the cost and programme.
Regulatory Compliance and Quality-Considered trade package appointments and regimented checking process throughout the process, results in a high quality project with reduced defects liability.
Independent Certification-Verification of monthly certificates/final accounts by our QS Partner, CS2. Option available for project bank account to reduce administrative burden on Client.
Reduced build cost by omitting Main Contractor OHP and associated allowances for risk, fixed price, enhanced VO payments and costs associated with contractual disputes.
Comparative Cost Analysis-We would expect a minimum saving of 8% relative to Lump Sum D&B, with an enhanced saving to be achieved through unallocated risk allowances and trade package buying gains.
