“We have worked with Isaac Mercer for over 5 years, and for us, they are one of our go-to consultants for managing consortium projects.”
Every consortium housing development is unique in size and scope and every project brings different complexities, constraints and challenges.
As well as consortium members, there are many stakeholders whose interests need managing, including other housebuilders, local authorities, highway authorities and commercial developers.
We set strategic parameters for the development which include the management of legal, planning, design, budgetary, programming and construction requirements.
With a wealth of experience in the project management of consortium housing developments, we have tailored systems and procedures according to the unique requirements of this type of project. This means we can efficiently tackle any issues that arise, so you can rest assured that your project is in safe hands.
The starting point of our involvement in the development cycle can vary. We are often involved at the very beginning of the project; from the land viability, acquisition and promotional stages through planning, design and delivery. Regardless of the start point, we stay with the project until the development has been successfully completed.
As part of our comprehensive project management service, we also fulfil the role of quantity surveyor and principal designer under CDM. When managing work contracts, we act as contract administrator, employer’s agent or engineer.
We make Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) and Customer Care our focus from the beginning.
We prioritise these at every stage of the project including; land partitioning, collaboration agreements, occupation forecasting, build sequencing and phasing. As such, we safely manage construction deliveries and traffic implications as well as the safe segregation of build phases and public areas, all whilst causing minimum disruption.
Communication is key for optimal safety, we understand the importance of communicating clearly and continuously throughout to everyone involved; including sales teams, neighbours and the local community.
