How does Shanco meet strict project timelines?

For smooth construction and groundworks projects, the key to success lies not only in the execution of tasks but in the meticulous planning and foresight that precede them. At Shanco, a national groundworks partner that cares deeply about the quality and efficiency of every project, we understand the complexities and challenges that come with working to strict project timelines. Our approach, deeply rooted in our family values and a commitment to excellence, sets us apart in the industry.

Early Engagement and Proactive Planning

Our philosophy emphasises the importance of early engagement with our customers and collaboration across all departments, including operations, commercial, and Safety, Health, Environmental & Quality (SHEQ). By getting involved from the outset, we are better positioned to identify and mitigate any potential obstacles or risks that could affect the project’s timeline. Being proactive is essential because poor construction information often leads to project delays.

Our technical department diligently reviews construction information months before a project’s start and issues regular ‘requests for information’ throughout the project lifecycle. This minimises defects and ensures that productivity levels remain high, maintaining the momentum needed to meet our deadlines.

Collaboration and Coordination

At Shanco, we believe in the power of teamwork and collaboration. We work closely with our customers and other subcontractors to create detailed works programmes and phasing plans, tailored to the unique needs and challenges of each project. Our weekly internal coordination meetings allow us to monitor progress, identify challenges early, and implement solutions swiftly.

We actively promote and take part in regular coordination meetings with our clients and all project stakeholders. A collaborative setting encourages open communication, keeping everyone aligned with project goals and timelines.

Resource Management and Technology

Understanding that the right resources are critical to the success of any project, we hold fortnightly resource meetings to ensure that we have the optimum workforce and equipment allocated to each project for the next four weeks. We meticulously upkeep our construction plant and equipment to avoid any disruptions caused by machinery breakdowns.

Leveraging technology, our bespoke cloud-based management system, streamlines communication and information sharing with our on-site teams. This accessibility ensures that our teams have immediate access to the information to complete their tasks efficiently and effectively.
