SCF continue to develop a flexible approach to 2 stage open book, ensuring clients key requirements are achieved during their procurements. A focus on pre market engagement and industry days ensure both contractors and clients can test the project parameters, resulting in a keener understanding of the schemes and higher quality submissions during the tender stages.
Throughout the preconstruction phase, SCF provide expert advice to ensure the key governance processes are adhered to, maximising opportunities for contractors to add value to schemes, adding on average 10% of the contract sum, which can be reinvested by the client into the scheme.
The governance process ensures projects are de-risked and fully costed before construction begins, providing confidence in their designs, programmes and cost. When adjusted for scope change on average, SCF projects are delivered within 2% of programme and just 1% of budget.
