Early Contractor Involvement (ECI)

Our ECI approach is underpinned by our company principles outlined below


REAL ECI – Being at the table, contributing to the design team, thinking smart and doing our homework.  ADDING VALUE – Thinking outside the box and contributing to strategies that are safe, with sensible construction and economic outcomes.  DESIRE AND WILLINGNESS TO DO WELL – We can not let our team mates down, we need to perform and always look for the solution, not the problem.  CLEAR MINDSETThat we all must win for the project to be successful, including consultants and sub-contractors. 

INTEGRITY – Being upfront about issues, ensuring everyone is aware of potential risks and contributing to strategies to deal with them. 

LEAD SMART VALUE ENGINEERING  – Provides value but doesn’t compromise quality or design outcomes.  PROCUREMENT Drive the specification to ensure proven, quality materials which are cost effective are used.  MAKING IT ENJOYABLE – A few laughs, and ensuring we contribute to the project culture and partnership.  SAFETY IS ALWAYS PARAMOUNT – And nothing is worth someone getting injured – safety is everyone’s responsibility.  Ensuring – Decision makers are at the table from day one and are there throughout the project life cycle. 

Trust – Contracts are secondary to the trust principle of doing it right and treating each other fairly.
