A comprehensive and proven suite of expert services to manage the construction of your renewable energy project in a safe, timely and cost-effective manner.
Construction Management Overview
During the Construction Management phase, Locogen manages clients’ projects in accordance with the technical specifications in the contracts.
Our project management team follows Prince II project management principles to ensure effective control of the cost, timescales, risks, scope and quality of your project. They also provide appropriate progress reporting to clients and lenders. We act as a single point of contact for the client, lender, design team, contractors and other project stakeholders to ensure effective project communication.
Acting as the owner’s engineer, we ensure the works are constructed in accordance with the planning and other statutory conditions of consent, the technical specification in the contracts and industry standards.
Depending on the scale of the project, we can offer a full-time site engineering team to oversee the construction works. We also arrange periodic site inspections by technical experts to witness construction and testing activities.
We also administer the contracts on behalf of our clients, which includes:
- Changes / variations to the contract
- Dispute resolution
- Valuation and payments
- Managing the handover process
- Preparation of snagging lists
At the end of the construction phase, when the project is commissioned and entering into the operational phase, we hand over to our Asset Management Team.
