The Commercial Team are involved in all build schemes from inception to completion and work closely with other departments throughout the process to achieve the desired end results.

Our Commercial teams have many specialists who make sure that both the workers and suppliers are paid and that everything is constructed to plan and to strict health and safety regulations. Commercial roles include:

  • Buyer
  • Quantity Surveyor
  • Commercial Manager
  • Estimator

Once the Commercial Team have been made aware that the site is likely to be purchased they will start to procure the “early works” packages.

In the case of Ottermead this was for the demolition works and the access roads to the site as construction delivery vehicles will need to use these as well as the future residents. Water, gas, electricity, drainage and communication links are usually included in the road construction.

The Commercial Team will oversee the buying of all materials and subcontracts placed for the site. At all times the costs will be monitored to ensure that the build is delivered both on time and on budget.
