NEGOTIATED PROCUREMENT ALLOWS OUR CLIENTS TO AGREE A CONTRACT SUM WITH BARNES CONSTRUCTION ON A SINGLE SOURCE BASIS AND IN TURN, ELIMINATE THE TENDER PROCESS
Our established reputation for delivering construction projects that have achieved high standards of build quality and that have been completed to programme and budget has enabled us to secure a sizeable proportion of our workload via the negotiated procurement route.
The bulk of projects that have been completed via the negotiated route have evolved from repeat business customers who initially approached us through traditional single or two stage tendering but then chose this procurement route on subsequent projects as a mechanism for achieving best value.
This process enables you to select a principle contractor based on proven ability in terms of quality, performance, experience, health and safety and final cost criteria rather than a 'lowest bid' wins strategy.
This procurement route eliminates a large proportion of the tender process and therefore offers savings in both time and tender costs. Our early involvement engenders a teamwork approach and allows us to more fully understand our customer’s needs. It also enables us to be part of the design development process, where our practical input into technical, programming, budgetary issues and supply chain procurement will pay dividends. This will be particularly evident on fast track schemes or projects within an operational environment.
