Structure Tone London adds new Detail & Build fit-out division
Structure Tone London, a leading UK contractor, today announced the launch of their new agile, rapid delivery offering designed to leverage the company’s expertise and capabilities in the Detail & Build approach to construction.
Led by industry expert, Richard Howard, Structure Tone’s new detail & build team specialise in Cat A & Cat B fit-out projects that have been designed to RIBA stages 2-3 with values of between £500k – £5m.
“It’s about making the entire process more efficient by maximising the contractor’s relationship to take a more direct path from design to construction.”
Says Richard Howard, Structure Tone’s new Detail & Build lead.
“By working closely with the client design guardians and professional team, our team of experts bridge the gap between design and build and traditional procurement.
Through collaborating with the client’s professional team our experienced and robust internal team of Architects, designers, technical services specialists and construction experts supported by our external specialist design partners bring the best of both worlds to every project, providing the following benefits:
– Single point of responsibility but with client project governance through their retained professional team
– Maximised speed of delivery through design and procurement overlap
– Cost and scheme performance certainty early in the design stage
– Early application of buildability advice to minimise the design and construction risks
Our approach to the design management, development and coordination of the detailed and technical stages is to complement the design intent. We look to add value to the client by making the process more efficient, thereby allowing the client to realise the benefits of design and build procurement (one-point responsibility, buildability, speed, cost certainty) but with the control and governance that comes with traditional procurement.”
Adam Rowe, Divisional Director said of the appointment,
“I am delighted to welcome Richard Howard to lead our new Detail & Build Division. As a Detail & Build Specialist, Richard offers our clients a rapid and highly cost-effective fit out solution but with all of the benefits of a Tier 1 contractor.”
Howard, who has twenty years of complex construction management and leadership experience, has built a career on putting his client’s first, understanding their needs and ultimately providing them with an outstanding customer experience.
This approach has already paid off, having recently secured both a landlord core refurbishment project and landlord Cat A fit out a project using the Detail & Build approach. Both projects are due to commence mid-April with completion planned for late August.
