Collaborating to achieve the best possible outcome

Premis has substantial experience delivering under the ECI model. The benefits can be considerable across most project types, however where real value can be achieved is with complex projects where the client has program pressures and where there may be unidentified risks. The main goal is to save time and money and to achieve the best possible outcome for the client.

Major benefits include:

  • Additional efficiencies during the design development process.
  • Design coordination and buildability issues resolved before the start of construction.
  • More collaborative and less adversarial process which often results in higher level of innovation.
  • More efficient tendering process.
  • Program of works is far more accurate.
  • Reduced time during construction phase.
  • Substantially reduced variation costs.
