The traditional tender process of engaging OPRA Projects for a defined scope of work tendered on a complete set of documents.
The client appoints the consultant team with the Architect or Project Manager acting as superintendent on their behalf. OPRA Projects is then responsible for completing the project to programme as per the documentation.
The Construction Management model of procurement typically works with the builder engaged on a fee to work ‘cost plus’ on behalf of the Principle. This model also allows early engagement of OPRA Projects to work on the behalf of the client, advising on buildability and programming solutions. Provides value to the client by accelerating the project programme and value engineering the total price if required. Under this model the client is still responsible for the appointment and performance of the Consultant team.
A hybrid of Lump Sum and Construction Management, OPRA Projects work in an open book ‘cost plus’ process advising on best programme and value. The same advantages of value engineering and programme acceleration are possible, however with converting to Lump Sum procurement once documentation is complete and a total price is agreed. This model guarantees value for the client, with transparent pricing and full programme risk being held by OPRA Projects a total price and programme is agreed. This model guarantees value for the client, with transparent pricing and full risk of programme and price being held by OPRA Projects.
