Tendering, negotiating and specification writing
In our head office we have Sophie who deals with everything on the commercial side- tendering, proposals & variations.
Alex heads up the design team, managing Dave, Mike and Tyler who between the three of them can be working on typically a dozen schemes at any given time. All our design is completed in house including lux plots, SBEM and Amtech.
Contract management and procurement
Mark and Garry are our contracts team and bring to the company a wealth of knowledge- having been with us over 60 years between them, there isn’t much they haven’t dealt with on site and have come from ‘the tools’ into the office. Both Mark and Garry ensure jobs remain on track with the main contractor programme, manage all our manpower and deal with some technically challenging aspects of site install. They both work alongside our buyers Richard and Joe who utilitises a strong and loyal supply chain to support him in his role ensures goods are delivered to sites on time and in sequence.
On site our working foreman work in teams which are typically partnered with local agency labour. We are often asked how we manage staffing on site and have found that by upskilling all our electricians to the highest level, this enables us to supplement teams with either agency labour or short-term contractors who have typically worked with us before. We describe our works on site as ‘termites through a building’, instead of waiting on specialist subcontractors we can install everything as we move through fire compartments in one hit- making the most efficient movement through the building. The only element we externally source is lightning protection and we have worked closely with a small number of trusted suppliers over the years.
