McComb Partnership have been working in the Education Sector for over 15 years providing project management, cost management in Primary, Secondary, Tertiary and Higher Education since its beginnings in 1948.
In the past 5 years we have delivered significant schemes for our Framework Partners – Kent County Council and West Sussex County Council as Cost Managers and Contract Administrators.
Our extensive experience in the Education sector can be seen on our Projects Page delivering cost management and control from inception to completion.
In the past twelve months we have been involved in providing expert cost and project delivery advice for over £12m of education schemes including:
Developing Cost Effective Solutions. Our role as cost managers and our cost database provide us with a unique understanding of costs in education and market costs.
In fact we are so passionate about delivering value for money we brought together industry experts to develop cost effective high quality modular (but flexible) school extension solutions. Our partners Hazle McCormack Young, Ofp Timber Frame Solutions and Kier Construction.
We developed a cost effective solution collaboratively which would be able to be engineered specifically for a customer’s specific needs without using flexibility or cost effectiveness. Have a look at our Small scale school extension report May 13.
Our first project has just been delivered in Kent (so far so good) so watch this space for an update.
Each of our education clients have access to our Education Database of costs which has over 40 schemes worth in excess of £39m. Developed over 5 years the database provides up to date cost information for excellent cost certainty, comprehensive business case estimates (no more £/m2 “guestimates”), realistic pre tender estimates to control budgets far more effectively. The real strength of the database is that reflects real world costs and we are able to benchmark effectively across our clients including KCC and WSCC.
