AWARDS TAILORED TO THE PROJECT SIGNIFICANTLY ENSURE THE SUCCESS OF THE PROJECT
Contractual loopholes, duplicate orders and unclear service descriptions bring sand into the gears. Who wants that? Project-specific service descriptions and contracts ensure that everything runs like clockwork.
It’s good to know where to look when many people are calling. But easier said than done, hindsight is often wiser. In the heat of the moment, you can’t see the wood for the trees. To ensure that complex construction projects run smoothly, you need a good deal of experience.
Many factors have to be taken into account when commissioning project participants: relevant project objectives, project location, deadlines, budget, the client’s own contributions, interfaces between different trades and – not so easy – factors that are not yet obvious at the time the contract is concluded. Of course, it is possible to conclude contracts with whatever you have in mind and think is right and important. Such contracts harbor risks because, although the characteristics of the individual elements are clear, their interaction is not.
Better: Rely on an integrative procurement strategy that shows who is needed, which interfaces arise, and which risks and opportunities are to be expected. We develop this strategy with you and support you in drafting the contract, negotiating, and concluding it. In doing so, we ensure that project-specific components such as the construction process, information system, and cost framework are coordinated between the contracts and that there are no gaps in performance or duplication of services.
Some practitioners may object that things never run like clockwork. It doesn’t work without supplements for operating resources or construction.
Unfortunately, this is the order of the day, but the risk can be reduced. Clear interface definitions, deadline agreements, organizational processes and responsibilities ensure this. When drawing up specifications and drafting contracts, you benefit from our many years of experience with complex project structures. This way, we ensure that the contract awards cover the required services precisely and are optimally interlinked.
You benefit from the fact that we know what to look out for to ensure optimum interaction. A little controlled friction is definitely part of this. It ensures an exchange of information and thus the best possible result when drafting contracts and implementing contractual agreements in planning and implementation.
