A FRESH APPROACH
At C3, we pride ourselves on fresh and innovative solutions to project challenges. Whether there’s a site issue, a design complication, or a stakeholder engagement problem, we draw on our experience from both sides (client and contractor) of the traditional project divide to identify the best overall solution.
The benefits of our client/contractor mix of experience can’t be overstated. By having a deep appreciation for both sides of the project coin, C3 has a holistic view of the best path forward. Our ability to integrate easily into the wider team allows us to recognise challenges before they become show stoppers.
At C3, one of our core values is ‘people come first’. By living our values, we have built highly robust relationships with key consultants, subcontractors and suppliers, many of whom are the best in their field. Through these relationships, and our commitment to people on a personal level, we can attract the best people to work with us on your next project.
Traditional Approach vs C3’s Approach
TRADITIONAL APPROACH VS C3 APPROACH
|Traditional approach||Project activity||C3’s fresh approach|
|Egocentric approach based on “I know best”. Design issues are targeted as a basis for variation claims.||Design input||No egos and a sincere ‘best for project’ approach. Our focus is on avoiding variations.|
|Force market to provide LS pricing based on incomplete design. Lazy. Supply chain forced to price in a premium for risks.||Subcontract letting||Agile. We come up with quick and effective solutions to supply chain constraints. Our ‘measure and value’ packages de-risk jobs for subcontractors. It’s more work for us, but far better value for the client!|
|Task-based duration allowances. They simply add them up to establish the overall programme.||Programming||We attack the critical path. Labour analytics allow targeted reductions in onsite man hours of up to 40%.|
|Paper-based, primitive and error-ridden.||Systems and processes||100% cloud based. Real-time client cloud reporting. Our tech savvy allows us to harness the world’s cutting edge technology.|
