Tender Process


The deliverability of the project is held by the project manger and we ensure we maintain effective communication between all parties. This ensures all works are delivered on time, on budget to the required quality standards.


One of the most preferred route is that contracts are awarded on a “most economically advantageous tender” basis. Therefore, the evaluation will not usually be restricted to just the cost. A contract will be awarded after evaluating a range of criteria, which are usually weighted by importance and agreed with our client upfront. Criteria other than cost may include:


  • Quality
  • Experience
  • Programme of Works
  • Project Lead-in Period
