During the pre-construction phase; exi PM took control of the contractor’s design team to lead the design process to produce a suitable scheme that delivered the clients brief. The implementation of clear & transparent leadership, regular & structured communication, alongside effective circulation of information, ensured all disciplines were able to produce their specific outputs in line with predetermined deliverables and timescales, resulting in a robust set of contract documents.
