IT in Construction

CEM is continuing to devlop software and IT solutions for construction professionals.

By using the advantages of modern information technology and equipment, the construction professional can increase productivty and better use time as a resource for efficient project and contract management.

Construction is knowing What and Where. Management is knowing When and How.

As a Management Team, CEM has represented a number of contractors on large scale publicly funded projects. These projects required client and representative liaison, public services authority coordination, personnel, plant and materials management and general construction contract management.

CEM provided up to date cost analysis and task reflection reports, in order that efficiency could be increased and actual task resource usage could be analysed. Efficient materials procurement and logistics also ensured value for money, security of materials and efficient Just-In-Time programming.
Complex arrangements are often required to facilitate service providers, sub-contractors and specialists. CEM ensures correct information, resources and diary management to meet deadlines and complete the projects. On site, management of costs, client requirements and contractors is critical, while ensuring contract completion with a flexible approach to the construction processes.

"If a building looks better under construction than it does when finished, then it's a failure."
- Doug Coupland

Engineering Design is as much an art as it is a science.

Consulting to Contractors, CEM has provided design analsis as an early warning/identification system on a number of projects. This mechanism ensures that construction drawings and specifications are analysed to identify requirements, possible clashes/logistics problems, materials requirements and cost savings. This process often leads to re-assessment of design, providing Value Engineering and cost efficiency.


CEM also provides services as lead designer. This role requires effective cost and requirement management, while applying standards and regulations in a competent and proficient manner. Contractor and Contract Management plays an ever increasingly critical role, as the rules by which contracts are undertaken are changing. CEM has therefore invested in extensive training and qualifications to increase contract awareness and construction management methods.

Contracts often present a significant degree of litigation liklihood. In construction enspecially, the temptation as a result of significant contract sums and deviation from the perceived contractual obligations, leads parties to a litigation result. This need not be the case, with the increased availability of Alternative Dispute Resolution.


Conciliation

A relatively informal and non-binding process, this mechanism presents the parties with an opportunity to resolve key contractual disputes and grievences, with the aim of avoiding more costly and protracted mechanisms.

Arbitration

A detailed and clinical investigation of the evidence, documents and testimonies of the parties, leading to an Award. This process is binding on the parties and is enforced by the courts.
