During this phase, design and construction proceed concurrently and the prime role of the project manager is to maintain the timeous flow of information to the contractor and sub-contractors.
The main contractor is viewed as part of the team and SIP strives towards motivating and assisting him in organising the construction activity. One of the first tasks of SIP is to marry the contractor's programme to the documentation programme, overseeing any amendments which may be required for information flow to the contractor.
Establishing efficient and effective collaboration between the various consultants and contractors, means working towards achieving a common goal. Maintaining a communications network between the Owner, consultants, contractor, sub-contractors and the Owner's direct contractors, SIP monitors and co-ordinates all of their relative functions.
SIP's hands on approach are especially evident in our involvement in direct site control. Depending on the dictates of the project, full-time site control will be provided as necessary, providing eyes, ears and hands at the coal-face.
SIP regards off-site production activities as being equally important as on-site construction and will monitor the full network of activities producing goods and services for the project.
