Construction Management

Sometimes the traditional approach to contracting exposes you to too much risk. That could be cost, time, inconvenience or just hassle. Our Construction Management services enable you to take control of the project and helps you manage these risks in a pro-active way.

Through the pre-construction period we work closely with the design team to develop an economic and buildable solution. Working together to initially identify the risk and then come up with ways to eliminate and mitigate them.

Once we have gone through this process everything is ready to start on site. This is when we put our site team in place to run the project. As always our Ease team are 100% committed to delivering it successfully for you.

Clients Project Management

When you decide to move forward with a Capital Project, be that a new house or business expansion, it can be a daunting task. We are able to work with you to help you understand how to tackle your project and draw up a timetable of the key stages of the project. Not only does this give a clear route from A to B and through to Z, it also enables you to carry on with your day job without diverting all your time into managing the project.

Our approach to this service is to understand your business or objectives from the project and then move things forward focused on your objectives.

For our business clients we are seconded into their organisation to manage the projects as part of their team.

Development Management

Now that we have been involved with some key clients for a number of years, where a significant degree of trust has developed between them and Ease, something we are being increasingly involved with is Development Management.

We advise and assist our client with initial land assembly, development of the master plan, then manage the inception to completion. This intense involvement from start to finish realises the best and most profitable outcomes for our clients, and limits inevitable stresses.

Project Doctor

Like many things in life it’s good to get a second opinion about how your project is going, especially if you have some concerns or doubts.

We’re happy to have a look at your project, at whatever stage it is at, and look at things with a fresh pair of eyes. Sometimes this just settles your concerns but in other instances we have been able to significantly reduce costs, simplify the design, reduce the risks or help to eliminate defective work.

All this can be done in confidence so not to disrupt your team and changes can be implemented when you are ready to make them.

Please do feel free to call us to see if we can help. It’s surprising to many what a difference we can make.

Open Book Contracting

This is simple and honest contracting. Sometimes it’s important to know that the person delivering your scheme is 100% committed to a successful delivery for you, with no other distractions. We are happy to do this.

Obviously it’s important that we are keeping a keen eye on the costs so when we undertake this open book approach we like to start by building up a Cost Plan for a scheme which should be the out turn cost. This is then monitored on a monthly basis to give you a clear idea of how the project is performing.

Clients often like this approach when they like to make decisions as the works progress rather than be committed to make every decision before any works have started.

This is always a successful approach when there is a high deal of trust and integrity and we have the people who have those qualities.

Feasibility Studies

We are fortunate to get involved in many of our projects at an early stage. This enables us to help shape projects and work with our clients closely to assess the viability of their projects.

Together we can work with you on establishing the costs and timescales for a capital works project whilst you draw up the business case. These two exercises can then be bought together and scrutinised to ensure the right decisions are made before committing to the expense and resource required for a Construction Programme
