Supply Chain

We know that the way we manage our supply chain greatly affects our projects; not just in terms of the build quality, but how effectively the project runs. We don't simply select subcontractors on price alone. We consider each particular skill set to match the complexity and location of the project, to ensure the right mix at site level. This is why we have developed a robust, three tier selection procedure.

Level 1

Subcontractors and suppliers we have worked with many times. They understand our business and what is required both in terms of quality and health & safety. They consistently provide good documentation both during the construction phase and at handover and always complete on time, with the minimum of fuss.

Level 2

Subcontractors who have carried out some work for us and are starting to understand our business. They are developing a good working relationship with us and demonstrate a good standard of both quality and health and safety.

Level 3

This is the entry level for all prospective subcontractors who meet our basic criteria. These subcontractors have secured a place on our select list, but have yet to secure a contract.
