We recognise how important it is for its civil team to integrate with the process project team to successfully deliver the whole project. Through our experience and expertise in the management of the civil work, we understand that the process design and construction lead the whole project.

When delivering the civil works, CCM procure individual trade packages including piling, concrete works, structural steel, cladding, building services, and fire engineering.

How we add value:

  1. Effective management of interfaces
  2. Providing more time in the programme for the process and civil designers to produce detailed design information
  3. Reduced civil construction costs
  4. Reducing risk by apportioning the construction risk to the contractor best able to manage the risk
  5. Providing flexibility to the clients’ programme by allowing CCM to manipulate the trade contracts to suit our requirements
  6. Preventing a main contractor from generating significant, and costly, conflict
  7. Providing full transparency of the scope and costs of the packages for the client

How CCM is different:

Our services are provided on a lump sum fixed price fee. The benefit of this is to give our clients their own civils team whose sole focus is to deliver the project and not to defend CCM’s fee. It is fully transparent, and the client receives a clear view of the project critical areas during the pre-engineering phase and construction phase of the project until take-over.

We provide bid support up to preferred bidder status at our own risk. This means we defer fees for this portion until our client has reached Notice To Proceed (NTP).

Unique to the industry, CCM’s deep understanding of interface management and its trademarked PROJECT first philosophy drives its team to deliver the project on time, on budget, safely.

Our Approach and Project First

We always put the project first to ensure civil works are delivered in a transparent, hassle-free and cost-effective way.
