Integration and Collaborative Working is one of the core categories in the Constructing Excellence Awards. Over the years we have seen great examples of winning teams who have demonstrated the very positive impact collaborative working has on producing better results and improved customer satisfaction. SECBE distils and assimilates key lessons to create powerful knowledge to support you.

SECBE will provide a really structured approach to achieving concensus from all stakeholders about the needs and objectives of the project. Knowledgeable about value management methods and techniques and experienced in applying them we can:

  • establish what value means to a client
  • clearly, define and agree project objectives
  • establish how objectives can best be achieved

Lean thinking results in highly flexible and profitable companies but the process to achieve it requires radical change and a strategic long-term approach.

SECBE will work with your organisation to understand the real value it delivers to its customers then work out the most effective way of making best use of its resources. Together we’ll investigate and challenge customer requirements and existing work processes, then develop strategies to remove the waste that undermines value being effectively delivered.
