We are your contract manager. Whether you are using a traditional contract, specifications based on Uniform Administrative Conditions (UAV; site management) or an integrated contract based on Uniform Administrative Conditions-Integrated Contracts (UAV-GC). We know the contracts and the general conditions by heart – even the English NEC3 variant. Even more important, perhaps, is that we understand that a project’s success depends on collaboration. Though your role may be different in each contract type, we are always the partner who safeguards your ambitions. The contract managers at Brink Management / Advies are passionate professionals who love to perform checks, but even more than that, they love to proactively ensure that you attain the best end results.
Our experts in Contract management and site management
In The Hague, Brink contract managers are supporting the Central Government Real Estate Agency (RVB) with a new-build project for Eurojust. This project is being executed on the basis of a Uniform Administrative Conditions (UAV) contract in which quality control is organised using the system-oriented contract management (SCM) method. And that’s a first. This method involves auditing the contractor’s quality process, which means there is no site management or on-site supervision in the traditional sense. The role of the site management is to verify rather than to give instructions and perform checks. Audits of the contractor’s quality management are conducted by a group of Brink contract managers who have been specially trained for SCM.
The design, construction, fit-out and relocation of the International Criminal Court (ICC) is an extensive and ambitious project. After all, at 56,000 m², the Court building has quite the floor area. Brink has been supporting the ICC with strategic, tactical and operational issues since 2009. The project further marks the first time that the NEC3 Engineering & Construction Target Contract has been used in the Netherlands. This contract promotes collaboration between clients and contractors and encourages them to share risk management and to seek ways to optimise the project together. In addition to the innovative nature of the contract, this project involves a pioneering use of BIM – not only during construction, but also when the building becomes operational in the near future.
