With Progress’ transparent model, clients are able to connect with the supply chain and procure directly with Progress as a shield. Construction is messy and there’s a lot of smoke and mirrors. Design & Build puts a lot of responsibility and control with the contractor which we believe is the wrong place to put it. This is because standards and service levels can drop as contractors can hide behind lengthy contracts. Control should be with an independent design and project management company like Progress. Once clients see through this, having a collaborative approach is a much more positive way of delivering the finished result.
It’s a simple process for Progress to take care of the project and resources. The client doesn’t have to compare prices and risk cost margins with Progress’ transparent model. Progress does the research for you and all you have to do is sign it off. Whether it’s being at the front and centre or taking a back seat, you can have as much involvement in the project as you want.
