In partnership with our nationwide and local subcontractors and suppliers of materials, we try to keep improving how we manage our supply chain and how it performs. We have meetings with all national suppliers in the UK every three months and provide training and support for subcontractors in areas such as health, safety and environment. Maintaining good relationships with our business partners and involving them in planning and preparing for our new developments has a number of benefits, including:
- reducing the effect of the development on the environment;
- making the building programme more efficient;
- reducing disruption to local people during construction; and
- improving the quality of the finished homes and infrastructure.
We treat our suppliers as an integral part of our business and will work with them to make our activities as efficient as possible, maintaining high standards of workmanship and customer satisfaction. A variety of techniques will be adopted including, where appropriate, a full tendering process to ensure that we receive a market competitive commercial solution.
Benchmarking will be used to determine commercial effectiveness where competition is limited or not available.
We maintain a list of approved suppliers and subcontractors which is regularly reviewed and consolidated to ensure an effective selection across all parts of our business.
