Zhongteng has the capability to oer all our respected clients a preferred from of project delivery, depending on the control and management contribution and appetite to risk,though we are condent in our ability to forge a strong relation ship to deliver all ourprojects through any form of contract.
Our contractual experience includes:
Our management processes can be customised easily into the development process, at any stage, particularly in respect to:
Zhongteng is committed to providing our Clients with a broad range of the solutions for the realisation of virtually any project, which is why we have a diverse range of experience and methods of delivery throughout our business.
We believe that early Contractor involvement can reward the Client withsignificant benefits to the Construction of any project by providing input on mwthodology, value engineering, cost planning, interface issues and design, procurement and construction planning. These are services that we would be delighted to undertake with our Clients,under a Pre-Construction Service Agreement,which shall effectively build the project ‘on paper’ and achieve a thorough level of costing and planning that ensures there will be ‘no surprises’ through the project delivery.
The advantage that the Employer gains in this process is certainty. Certainty of design.Certainty of end product. Certainty of cost.
Design & Build
Much of this ability to carry out a pre-construction service for our Clients stems from our significant experience inDesign & Build contracts.We are very comfortable in this method of delivery, fully understand the risks inherent within this industry and this format assists the Client in off-setting those risks.
Our relationships with consultants and our in-depth understanding of the design processes ensure the more robust solution is delivered for the Employer, to time, cost and quality that is expected from a top-tier construction.
Acting as a consultant to the Client throughout the design development stages under a pre-construction services agreement, this format follows on directly with Kele operating as a Main Contractor through the construction phase, delivering the results of the developed project to an agreed contract format on a fee basis. This allows our Clients greater,flexibility and transparency.
Build Own Operate and Transfer (BOOT)
We operate in a region of frontier and emerging markets, where Governments need to invest in their infrastructure and services. Whilst this form of delivery is better known for its roads, bridges, airports, railways, power stations, water supply networks and the like,we are seeing major private developers considering this model for significant retail,education, healthcare work.
We have the ability to play a key role in establishing the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)with all stakeholders that will see major developments delivered faster for the ultimate owner.
Public Private Partnerships (PPP)
Governments in the region are focussing on the Public Private Partnership (PPP) as an alliance with the private sector to deliver necessary developments for their people. We have seen this method of delivery much more prominent in the social housing sector as significant shortfalls need to be reduced.
We have been involved in several of these developments in the countries in which we operate and see this form of delivery vital to some Governments to ensure speedy realisation of necessary infrastructure, in true partnership with the private sector members that can deliver excellent value products effectively.
The construction industry is inherently risky, but it is how we approach risk which may define the success or failure of a project.The earlier all stakeholders can be involved,including the Contractor, the greater the chance of identifying, challenging, mitigating and reducing those will be.
Risk management requires the combined wisdom of a wide range of construction and design professionals with knowledge of the whole project. A systematic approach at timed intervals throughout the project life-cycle will enable the project team to identify,analyse and respond to the effect of uncertainty and improve the decision making process.
The risk management process can also be used as a tool to test the impact of alternative procurement plans or construction methods.
Building Information Modelling
We are keen to embrace all technological advancements within the industry where there is benefit to our projects,and ultimately,our Clients.Building Information Modelling is one such tool.
The use of BIM software at the outset of any project creates the mostbenefit,though its use at any stage prior to construction will still provide rewards.
Value Management and Englneering processes can significantly contribute to the success of any project.Value is generally defined as the relationship between function, need and cost. Good value is obtained when the function meets the need at the lowest cost.
