Constructing Excellence recognises Corefast’s contribution to partnership and collaboration
02 Jul 2007
Constructing Excellence, the body formed as part of Sir John Egan’s Rethinking Construction initiative to drive change in the industry, recently recognised the part played by innovations such as Corefast in a recent article in Construction News.
Don Ward, the Chief Executive of the organisation said in the CN piece: ”Our annual publication of the Construction Industry Key Performance Indicators shows that demonstration projects out-perform the industry – although the rest of the industry is closing the gap a little. Partnering and collaborative working has yielded results.”
“Take St Paul’s Square, and eight-storey office, apartment and car park development in Liverpool city centre, as one example. Shepherd Construction, the main contractor, involved the steel supplier, Corus, at the early stages. This early involvement meant that when difficulties arose on-site, an innovative solution in the form of a modular construction product was delivered. This reduced time on site by 21 weeks and significantly saved money by removing craneage costs. This would not have occurred without early involvement in project specification and a shared incentive to deliver the project on time and within budget.”
Recognition indeed of the way Corefast is helping members of the construction team to deliver projects faster, more efficiently and with enhanced safety.
