The FKG Group is committed to delivering value for clients through our core business units and service partners, providing integrated, total project solutions. We deliver projects under a variety of contract forms, including but not limited to: Early Contractor Involvement, Construct Only, Managing Contractor and Design and Construct. Our projects are also executed via Lump Sum, Schedule of Rates, Performance Incentive Cost Reimbursable and/or Alliance style remuneration methods. We seek to work with our clients and are open to exploring these or a combination of delivery models that best suit the project requirements and outcomes.
Early Contract Involvement (ECI) is becoming widely used, early in the design phase of a project, to fast track projects, whilst measuring value through fields input. ECI allows clients to tap into the FKG Group’s 40 years’ experience during the design stage to provide advice regarding buildability, material and equipment selection, design development, staging of works, programming and cost budgets. This allows risks to be minimised whilst achieving maximise value and optimising whole life costs.
With a large team of internal Design Managers, Services Design Managers and Architects, the FKG Group is fully equipped to handle a wide range of projects. Currently three quarters of our projects are delivered by the Design and Construct or Document and Construct delivery method, which is testament to our capabilities.
Our team members draw upon years’ of experience to ensure their designs are developed and documented to not only meet, but exceed our clients’ requirements. Our approach involves identifying the best design alternatives and integrating buildability and material/equipment selection along with construction methodology to ensure the most efficient design solution. It’s this logic, inventiveness and eye for innovation that have positioned us as a leader in our field and a valued partner for our clients.
For projects that require fast track delivery, or if the design or scope is undefined or in a state of flux, the Managing Contractor (MC) is a suitable contract model. The FKG Group is well experienced in this method for both government and private clients and has developed many strong relationships as a result.
A great attribute of the MC model is the ability to set aside time for optioning and detailed modelling of Whole of Life (WOL) costs, so informed client decisions can be made in balancing capital and WOL costs.
Throughout its proud 40 year history, the FKG Group has delivered a range of projects in city, regional and remote locations. Exceeding our clients’ expectations is one of our key values and we pride ourselves on repeat business. We cover all sectors including retail, aged care/retirement, industrial, health, education, community, defence and commercial, with projects valued between $1 million and $110 million.
The FKG Group’s extensive portfolio covers new construction on greenfield sites, as well as refurbishment and extension projects on ongoing operational brownfield sites. Our works are undertaken under the guidance of our proven integrated management system, third party certified to quality, safety and environmental management.
