Churchill Hui led the way in introducing a more strategic approach to the procurement and construction process within the social housing sector.
As sustainability, building and safety regulations become ever more complex, so does the resulting procurement and construction process. This is particularly applicable in social and affordable housing. Early on, we identified that the successful management and implementation of this process had become a specialist discipline in its own right.
This is what prompted our decision to establish a full project management service. In essence, we act as employer’s agent or client representative. As such, we oversee and advise on all stages of the process, from briefing and design through to build and eventual handover.
In providing this service we draw on in-house specialist knowledge and technical expertise, which includes quantity surveying. We have teams of consultants who are all highly qualified and experienced in their respective fields and thoroughly conversant with the latest legislation.
Our role can be tailored to each client’s individual needs. It can be restricted to a specific focus within a project, or it can cover the full spectrum of disciplines, including guidance on programmes and consultant and contractor selection. Whatever our level of involvement we ensure our clients’ interests are fully safeguarded at all times.
Within this, we also offer technical and training seminars. These cover the ethos and mechanics of the partnering process and the roles and obligations of each party. This service is valuable in that it ensures a successful outcome for all parties, whether clients, consultants or contractors.
