BUILDING KNOWLEDGETM in the public sector
BUILDING KNOWLEDGETM projects have shown that the public sector can save significant cost by improving how they buy goods and services and how it manages its projects.
BUILDING KNOWLEDGETM project assessment identifies risks to construction programmes and projects and ensure that you deliver them on time and on budget.
Project success can be enhanced by reducing total contract costs: through smart planning, smart design and smart execution. BUILDING KNOWLEDGETM assists these savings by encouraging new ways of working, advising on procurement policies, building supplier relations and assisting contract formulation and specification development.
A key component of project success is a well-drafted project agreement setting out the goals, responsibilities and expectations of the parties: avoiding conflict, anticipating and avoiding future disputes and creating a sound structure for dealing with the unknown or unanticipated to reduce public liability and risk..
Successful projects provide a sound basis for longer-term, mutually beneficial client relationships and repeat business - after all, it is far easier to keep a satisfied client than to replace a dissatisfied one.
