Outstanding outcomes start before construction does
Through our experience we’ve learned to be selective about which projects we take on and who we choose to work with. We’re about more than just getting it done, instead, committing to getting it right at every turn.
We believe that the legacy of any build is more than wood, bricks and mortar. It’s more than filling trophy cabinets. Our legacy is built in the hearts of everyone we work with, in how they reflect on their experience with positivity and complete satisfaction.
Our capabilities support you from concept to completion
Every building project has opportunities and risks that need to be considered — the earlier the better.
Our team is experienced at identifying potential issues and addressing them before they become problems. Our capabilities in risk management and contingency plans helps to prevent the dreaded domino-effect that would otherwise lead to time and budget blowouts.
We’re ready to be part of any discussion that helps clients paint an exciting vision and set achievable timelines and budgets.
Cost Planning & Estimating
Avoid cost overruns by leveraging our experience in preventing them. We’re skilled in balancing the bold, transformational vision of a project with the reality of what’s possible within financial constraints.
Start by getting a better idea of where you stand in the commercial reality of building in this market, then we can show you where the wins can be, with opportunities like altering the stages, changing building materials or making minor adjustments to the design.
Early Contractor Involvement
Start building your A-team before you begin building anything else. Our reputation as an employer of choice has earned us the first pick of star players that make projects flow.
We choose contractors with the capability to realise each client’s vision, with proven experience in the areas we need. We source talent from our own pool of trusted suppliers, or can manage the RFQ process for selecting regional contractors, especially where economic development is a key outcome.
Design & Construct
For clients looking for simplicity, we offer turnkey D&C projects that factor in the design development, documentation and construction. Beginning with a detailed definition of design criteria, performance standards and intended purpose as well as site specifications, we’re able to formulate a design & construct process that delivers on outcomes, not just outputs.
Any project will likely involve dozens of contractors and multiple moving parts that need to be managed. Cooper & Oxley are well-versed in managing complexity and competing priorities from teams. We’re here to keep the peace on site even when the pressure is on. From maintaining site safety standards to regularly reporting progress, our clear communication and forthright manner is appreciated in an industry that has a reputation for shifting blame.
