The multi-skilled contractor, when acting as a project manager, assist customers in the selection and appointment of consultants and specialist sub-contractors ensuring competitive and transparent costings in an “Open Book” arrangement.

Baxall have also embraced Building Information Modelling (BIM), which is now required to be used across a wide range of projects. The firm now has a robust strategy to introduce this initiative into its management process.

Senior members of the Baxall staff have been involved with BIM seminars and workshops to increase their understanding of the mechanics and benefits of BIM and now work with consultants and supply chain to progress collaborative working.

Modern Methods of Construction is also now necessary due to the upturn in work and depletion of traditional resources. Baxall recognises the need to be able to build smarter and more efficiently and so has spent considerable time evaluating different building systems and are now working with STREIF UK to provide high specification closed panel superstructures that can respond to all the requirements of technical architecture.

This type of delivery is currently being adopted in four education projects and is proving to be a value solution providing benefits in reducing costs and programme time.
