Keeping a lid on spiralling construction costs

Keeping a lid on spiralling construction costs

According to research carried out by the Construction Products Association, rising cost pressures could put a dent in construction industry growth over the next 12 months.

Construction companies are currently faced with ‘unparalleled budgetary pressures’ through rising material, disposal and labour costs. An increase in production output is adding further pressure, and so it is essential that costs are kept ‘under control’ to ensure projects are delivered successfully.

Through early contractor involvement (ECI), we can work with you to evaluate the design, identify and eliminate risks: establishing a more ‘economically efficient’ programme that reduces costs and saves time.

Chris Hollis, Commercial Director, McCarthy and Stone, said of our collaborative approach: “I have worked with M. Lambe Construction on over 11 schemes in the past 4-years with McCarthy & Stone West Midlands prior to joining the East Midlands region in April 2017.

“They have been involved with value engineering each of our developments from the very early stages prior to commencement of site which has resulted in cost savings and also programme enhancements.”
