Early Contractor Involvement / Coordination of Statutory Undertakers

We are currently carrying out highway improvement works on the A38 in Birmingham and were appointed by Birmingham City Council to an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) stage whereby our team led the coordination of statutory diversion works, changing the programme phasing to enable numerous phases to run concurrently. Coordination meetings were held with the major statutory undertakers in order that their works could be assessed and incorporated into Fitzgerald’s construction programme, This exercise both de-risked the project by significantly reducing the likelihood of disruption and reduced the programme from 100 weeks to 70 weeks.
