Partnering has been developed over the last few years as an alternative procurement route for clients. It is perceived as a possible solution to the difficulties of obtaining accurate and meaningful tenders.
The Egan Report “Rethinking Construction” which was issued in July 1998 lay store by the introduction of partnering to:
Secure the workload of the Contractors
Increase research and development in the Construction Industry
Initial Contracts let under this basis required the use of a Facilitator to encourage existing parties to rethink their stance to a construction Contract. This has now developed with provision of at least two or three new Contracts.
Fusion-Commercial are able to deliver a service to facilitate partnering due to the fact that we have experience of partnering from the perspective of both the client and the contractor.
