02 Inception

At this point, we’ll be with you as you start to build a relationship with your chosen delivery team.

We’ll help you to understand the SCAPE process and we’ll be with you every step of the way, to give you any advice or training that you need and to get your project started with confidence.

03 Feasibility

Your chosen delivery partner will work closely with you and your team, holding in depth discussions and workshops to make sure they fully understand your project aspirations, including timescales and budget.

We’ll also be with you at every step of the way, ready to give you guidance or support throughout this process.

The information collected from these discussions will be collated into your free feasibility study.

04 Preconstruction

At this stage, you’ll be ready to enter into an agreement with your delivery partner. This will set out the defined services to complete the pre-construction phase.

At the end of this process, you’ll receive a 100% market tested cost plan, including a fully identified local supply chain.

05 Construction

When you are ready to move to the construction phase, you’ll enter into a Delivery Agreement which will formalise your partnership with your delivery partner.

Our teams will continue to be on hand to support you throughout the delivery of your project, monitoring performance and together we’ll ensure that your project is delivered to the highest possible standard.
