Integrated Construction Management
Even the best planning in the world quickly becomes worthless if it is not realized on site in high quality, on schedule and within budget.
In the case of Integrated Construction Management, our experts implement the client’s requirements professionally and economically, while at the same time ensuring high-quality realization of the architectural design.
The competency of our construction management teams extends across multiple cost groups – from construction (KGR 300) and building services equipment (KGR 400) to landscaping (KGR 500).
As a first step, our experts draw up the specifications for cost groups 300 and 500, and examine cost group 400, reconciling it with the costing. They then evaluate bids and prepare contract award suggestions.
We help the principal and project management select the best bidders by participating in procurement negotiations.
Following the award of contracts, we undertake site supervision – usually involving the construction and technical trades as well as landscaping.
At the end of the project, we provide professional commissioning management – based on a process drawn up during planning and construction that is divided into the phases commissioning, acceptance and handover. During operation of the building, we support facility management according to the client’s needs.
At the same time, a team records any execution defects and monitors their rectification for all trades. The project controlling team manages processes across all service phases, thus creating maximum cost certainty through early transparency. This, together with design review and quality assurance during construction, minimizes risks to the construction project.
As we undertake the coordination role, the principal only has one point of contact. This significantly reduces information loss at the interfaces and minimizes the business risk for the principal. Our site supervisors are from one company, speak the same language, and pursue the same goals.
We have been documenting the production costs of all projects in a database over a period of many years. This allows us to reliably estimate the volume of a project even before the start of actual design.
We analyze the data from all planning participants, allowing us to develop a sound basis for the principal’s decision-making. Continuous documentation provides the required transparency.
