The Construction Management process is an open book methodology for the project budget. The remuneration to Total is based on a lump sum amount for project management/ construction services plus a % margin applied to the final project cost.

  • Enables fast track into delivery
  • Reduces the overall design management costs but allows for the project scope to evolve
  • Breakdown of the overall project scope into trade budgets
  • Trade packages prepared with defined scopes for each trade
  • Trades then provide us a full Design and Construct costing
  • Competitive tenders from the open market (min 3 submissions per trade) evaluated with the client
  • Recommendations provided based on our industry knowledge as to each trade tender submitted, but it is the clients selection who to use
  • We subcontract the selected trades
  • We manage the delivery of the project to the client’s requirements and defined scope
