AMDAS can save our client’s time and money by offering Construction Management services as an alternative to the traditional design and build route of employing a main contractor. To facilitate this AMDAS can provide the following services as required: Project Management Planning, Cost Management, Time Management, Quality Management, Contract Administration, Safety Management, and CM Professional Practice. CM professional practice includes specific activities, such as defining the responsibilities and management structure of the project management team, organising and leading by implementing project controls, defining roles and responsibilities, developing communication protocols, and identifying elements of project design and construction likely to give rise to disputes and claims. The benefits of Construction Management rather than traditional main contractor design and build is reducing the pre-construction duration by breaking the works down into packages tendered out separately as that service is required.
By directly employing the various trade disciplines rather than them being subcontracted by a main contractor, this potentially reduces any over heads and profits that the main contractor would otherwise apply to the sub-contractors. When not having a main contractor, the role of Principal Contractor and Principal Designer, under CDM Regs 2015, can be fulfilled by AMDAS which ensures that there are no scope gaps or design conflicts between the overlapping trades.
