Skanska

Aims

Exelin worked with Skanska on two specific construction projects:

Glenfrome School in Bristol - a project to extend and refurbish a Bristol Primary school over the school summer holidays; and

The housing development of the former Battersea Power station in London.

 

Actions

We worked with the Skanska teams and their partners to map the whole build process including procurement, logistics, assembly and sign off to develop a robust operating model for future projects.

  • For the Battersea Utility cupboards, the rate of production was doubled compared traditional methods of construction.
  • Enhanced Programme control, flexibility through better reaction to change
  • Quality improvements reduced defects and rework
  • Improved safety regime and the ability to remove work away from other trades
  • Efficiency improvement savings could be offered to the client
  • Cash flow – through lean optimisation, managing demand for site and potential off-site valuations
  • Ability to use less skilled labour, reduction in labour costs
  • Overall a greener solution, through optimised transport scheduling
  • Reduced overhead costs compared to fixed factory setups due to optimal utilisation
