Highways Project & Cost Management

Investment in the UK road network is what we are passionate about. We proactively work with clients and their extended supply chain to deliver the connected road infrastructure the UK needs. We promote standardised project and commercial management plans to set out appropriate control measures, delivering to time, on cost, and adhering to rigorous quality metrics.

From the outset, we collaborate to arrive at a shared vision, with clearly aligned goals. This focus provides rigour across all inputs and demonstrate the significance on budgeting and forecasting to manage commercial interests. We use various client stipulated contract administration tools such as a-connect and CEMAR which are aligned to our management of change control. We enable innovation and drive lean digital delivery to reduce waste and minimise risk and we embed flexibility into our approach to ensure long-term sustainability for our clients.  

Our PRINCE2 stage-based approach to project and cost management aligns with the Portfolio, Programme, and Project Management Maturity Model (P3M3). This provides us with a data-based and action-orientated approach which we manage current performance to allow us to periodically assess our maturity level.

We have experience working with many forms of contract including JCT and NEC3 Options A, B, C and E, as well as an unrivalled BMS (Business Management System) which ensures consistency and compliance.

Our key services include: 

  • Cost planning
  • Option appraisal
  • Value engineering
  • Life cycle and whole life cost analysis
  • Cost monitoring and reporting
  • Tender document preparation along with tender evaluation and reporting
  • Post contract services – valuations, assessing compensation events/variations and agreeing final account

We also work with our clients to adjust contingency allowances as the project continues ensuring that they obtain best value for money from their investment.
