What is Construction Procurement?

Construction procurement is the strategic process of acquiring materials and suppliers for construction projects. Whilst this may sound simple, construction management procurement can be a complex and time-consuming process with every material (down to the last nail!) needing to be sourced and every service provider contracting – be that the builder, designers, or electricians – to name but a few.

For each material and service required to complete the project, a procurement specialist will create a specification and request for proposals (RFPs) from relevant suppliers. All proposals are then evaluated against the client’s goals to ascertain which proposals best suit the project’s specifications. Once the best supplier for each material and service has been identified, contracts and deliverables are negotiated, and the project is then executed under the ongoing supervision of the construction procurement specialist.

How are our
suppliers selected?

A procurement specialist will award construction contracts to suppliers according to a number of factors such as:

Cost of goods

Quality of goods

Speed of delivery

Experience and recommendation

Associated opportunities and risks

A successful construction procurement strategy will prioritise the client’s goals, ensuring that the desired quality is delivered within a timeframe and budget the suits the client’s requirements.

How can our Construction Procurement team help you?

Our construction procurement management will begin with a thorough consultation to explore your project’s scope of work. We will work with you to understand your specific requirements in terms of supplies and contractors as well as the project budget and timeframe

Our team of expert construction procurement specialists will then work on a procurement plan before acquiring project tenders. Using the information set out within the initial consultation we will review all tenders’ proposals and instruct the suppliers or contractors that can offer the greatest demonstrable experience at the best value to our client.

But our services do not end there. As part of our construction procurement process, our team will:

Negotiate with suppliers and contractors to drive down costs
