How does Shanco price up groundworks?

Construction can be a risky business – on-site delays, materials and regular updates to regulations can all inflate the cost of a project. With this, transparent, accurate, and fair pricing for groundworks projects is vital to create an accurate project budget. As projects often face funding constraints and other uncertainties, early and meticulous planning becomes crucial. This is where Shanco, a national groundworks partner that genuinely cares, steps in to shine.

Clients first

At Shanco, we understand that our clients’ needs are paramount. Our approach begins with a thorough assessment of how we can add real value to each project. We ensure excellence by matching our strengths to the right projects. We engage deeply with our clients, striving to understand their key drivers and what aspects of their projects are most crucial to them. This client-focused mindset is part of our DNA, reflecting our mission to deliver nationwide groundworks projects with unmatched care and professionalism.

Our Process

When pricing a project, we aim to address the complexities and nuances of groundworks. We go beyond the surface, literally and figuratively, by visiting sites to understand the terrain, the challenges, and even the local transportation routes. This on-site evaluation allows us to anticipate and plan for potential challenges the end user may face.

The collaborative spirit at Shanco is clear when our senior estimator and department heads come together to review each project. This multidisciplinary team thoroughly identifies the risks, challenges, and opportunities. This ensures a holistic view of project delivery, commercial considerations, and adherence to Safety, Health, Environment, and Quality (SHEQ) standards.

Our estimating team, equipped with insights from the operations team’s draft programme and supplier quotes, crafts a bespoke quotation. We recognise that no two groundworks projects are the same, which is why we calculate all our rates and prices from first principles, without preconceptions or assumptions. Our commitment to performance, reliability, and professionalism, especially on sensitive projects such as those for the Ministry of Defence (MOD), Ministry of Justice (MOJ), schools, and hospitals, is unwavering.
