The Early Bird in the Construction Industry
 
Most people are familiar with and have a good understanding of the statement about the early bird catching the worm. Some have heard this statement from a very young age and as life has gone on, they have come to see the principle at work in their lives in many different ways. Well, I am pleased to tell you that in the world of remediation and waste management, the principle that is taught by this short but very powerful statement is also emphatically true. That said, we at Dunton choose to word it slightly differently. We choose to say…
 
‘…The early bird gets the most value…’
 
When dealing with construction sites and ground risk, the sooner you can engage a market leading expert like Dunton to assist you with your project by assessing your ground risk and finding ways to mitigate that risk, the better. Whilst we realise that it is not always possible to engage an expert early, the value which can be added due to early dialogue can be staggering, as most of our clients continue to learn. 

At Dunton, early engagement on a project, particularly at land purchase stage or at initial tender stage, allows us to give our clients cost certainty and a competitive edge on their bids. More time, means added time for us to challenge design and come up with creative cost saving solutions which add significant amounts of value.
