We have long and broad experience of large-scale collaborative contracts at home and abroad, including various implementation models with fixed-price contracts or target prices with various incentives. We provide advice on how the contract can be adapted to your particular project and are happy to take on the role of interaction advisor.
In recent years, collaboration has been increasingly used as an implementation model. The projects have become larger and more complex, similar structures have not been built before, there is a need for innovation and supplier expertise while getting as much quality as possible within the given budget.
To succeed with collaborative projects, there are some basic factors that need to be in place:
- Clarity on what the interaction is intended to achieve and a clear plan for how the work will take place in the various phases.
- Establish the right team with a focus on goal achievement while agreeing on collaboration, openness and trust as a basis.
- In phase 1, the interaction is about working together to identify and cost-estimate opportunities and risks in the project, as well as setting a realistic plan for phase 2.
- In phase 2, the construction phase, the interaction is about using target price with defined cost items and other bonus/malus schemes to create increased collaboration for optimal execution of the construction phase.
- It is important to ensure a clear distinction between who makes which decisions with regard to the client’s functional requirements and other requirements, the contractor’s design and subsequent execution.
- Clear organization, project management and project owner management that is adapted to the interaction project
