Early contractor involvement

Would it not be nice if there was a collaborative concept that would involve the best of all parties? Where you have more grip is on the solution, more grip on the fixing of prices and therefore a greater budget certainty?

Collaborative concept

Would it not be nice if there was a collaborative concept that would involve the best of all parties? Where more grip is on the solution, more grip on the fixing of prices and therefore a greater budget certainty? A collaboration in which the main risks are being integrated in the design and the contract is being adapted to the circumstances. A collaboration in which contract management is more efficient and effective, without the intensive change of management.

The involvement of a contractor in the construction team is an existing model to elaborate the design and to implement the contractor’s expertise. In this model, however, there is no certainty that agreed contractual means can actually be implemented. In other words, there are issues then to cope with.

Renewed construction team model

For you, Aratis has improved the existing construction team model and developed and devised concrete solutions for the traditional difficulties. With this new model, parties are empowered. Depending on the circumstances, the renewed construction team model can lead to different construction organisation models and contract forms (UAV-2012, UAV-GC, Alliance) for the realisation. With this renewed construction team model, Aratis takes an important step to an improved collaboration between the client and the contractor.

What can you expect from us:

  • Framework to determine justification

  • A purchasing strategy to obtain the ‘best’ partner

  • A contract management strategy in which the partnership will be continued in the implementation

  • Professionals who get the best out of parties throughout the entire process from the tender to the delivery
