In order to minimise unnecessary costs change on construction projects needs to be avoided. However, in many projects change is inevitable, for varying reasons. Effective cost and change management processes are able to minimise and clearly identify the impact of any proposed changes.

Hookway believes that open and collaborative teams are key to an effective cost and change strategy. In addition, clear processes are put in place to track change and will vary depending on the procurement route chosen. Ultimately any change requests made by any party need to be timely and clear, and be analysed for any potential impact prior to being agreed and implemented by the person administering the contract. Hookway will ensure that the appropriate procedures are put in place and followed to provide sound cost and change management.

Construction projects will always contain an element of risk. Potential risks can however be minimised and managed through implementation of a risk management strategy.  Hookway implement processes that include clearly identifying the risks, agreeing how best to manage or mitigate them and, ultimately, inclusion of appropriate risk allowances within the project budget if appropriate. The use of such processes aids in delivering projects on time, on budget and to the required standards.

Testimonial

“The whole project has been a complete success from start to finish. Hookway and the builders (HBC) were a pleasure to deal with and the project management was highly professional.”

“We had to prepare and construct additional facilities, within two terms, to accommodate a child with severe and profound needs. The initial task seemed totally overwhelming, however Hookway took on the role of project managing the nearly £100,000 extension and enabled school life to continue with very few changes. ”

“This year we had two bids totalling over a one million pounds for Lawn Manor. Our new boilers and plant, and new roof projects have gone completely smoothly, safely and within budget.”
