1. Project Delivery Method / Services

Lead Construction Qatar W.L.L. is a full service Interior & Fit-Out General Contractor.

In addition to the traditional Design-Bid-Build project delivery method, also known as General Contracting, Lead Construction has extensive experience in executing Interior & Fit-Out projects using the following project delivery methods:

  • Design Build Contracts: This type of contract is based on integrating design and construction within a single contract. In this case, the General Contractor (Lead Construction) is also responsible for the design.

    In this approach, the construction team (composed of the Designer and the General Contractor) works together from the outset, with the integration of the two disciplines generating cost and time benefits, as well as gains in construction technology. With just one organization involved, the Owner benefits from a single, centralized source of information about both design and construction, and also has undivided responsibility.

    Lead Construction provides in-house Interior and MEP design services that seamlessly integrate into any Design-Build project and deliver added value.

    For certain projects, we team up with international and local Interior Designers and MEP consultants with whom we have a successful track record. Together, we have developed a strong team dynamic and they have become important strategic design partners.

  • At-Risk Construction Management: This project delivery method is similar to the traditional Design-Bid-Build method, whereby the Construction Manager acts as a General Contractor during construction. However, in this scenario, the Construction Manager also provides the Owner with advisory professional management assistance prior to construction (pre- construction phase services), offering advice about schedule, budget, and constructability issues during the project design and planning phase.

    In addition to the significant advantages provided by this method during Pre-Construction phase services, At-Risk Construction Management offers Owners the opportunity to begin construction prior to full completion of the design, offering considerable savings in both time and money (Fast Track Construction Management).

    Before the design is complete, the Construction Manager and the Owner may negotiate a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) based on a partially completed design that includes the Construction Manager’s estimate for the remaining costs.

2. Construction Management Services

What differentiates Lead Construction from the competition is our advanced level of Pre-Construction services, which enable us to identify success factors early in the process.

2.1 Pre-Construction phase services

By involving Lead Construction from the earliest stages of a project, our clients maximize their chances of benefiting from a smooth and trouble-free construction process and ensuring the project meets their needs in terms of quality, timing, and budget.

From the earliest conceptual design stages, Lead Construction’s services maximize value while minimizing issues. Working closely with our clients, their architects, designers and MEP consultants, we conduct constructability reviews to identify “buildability issues” during the early design phase. This allows the design team to make changes before construction begins, thus saving time and money further down the road. During this pre-construction phase, important issues such as value engineering, cost control, construction estimates, project schedules, and site logistics are also addressed.

Our Pre-Construction phase includes:

  • A collaborative approach with the design team (selected by the Owner)
  • Drawings review
  • Budget and Cost estimating
  • Value Engineering to ensure the Owner’s necessary functions are provided in the most cost effective way
  • Constructability reviews to minimize problems in the field
  • Project Master Schedule
  • In-house MEP design expertise
  • Due diligence and site surveys
  • Facility Management reviews
  • Preparing bid packages for subcontractors
  • Evaluating and comparing bids submitted by subcontractors
  • Recommending subcontractors for contract awards

2.2 Construction phase services

During the Construction Phase, we manage, administer, and supervise the construction works performed by our own workforce and our subcontractors.

As we have no conflict of interest, we act as the advocate of the Owner and collaborate throughout the construction process with all parties, creating an effective and enjoyable project experience while remaining committed to delivering high quality projects on time and within budget.

Our Construction phase includes:

  • Contract Administration of the project
  • Monitoring the Construction Master Schedule
  • Coordinating work between all subcontractors and our own workforce
  • Ensuring our own workforce and subcontractors deliver according to the specifications and plans
  • Ensuring our subcontractors deliver a high quality product
  • Cost Control and Change Order reviews
  • Administering and enforcing safety procedures

2.3 Post-Construction phase services

As the project is brought to a successful end, Lead Construction continues its commitment to customer service. We complete our snag list review prior to turning over any project and make sure all as-build drawings and Operation and Maintenance manuals are delivered within weeks of the project being completed.

Our Post-Construction phase includes:

  • Close Out procedures
  • Final Commissioning
  • As-Build drawings
  • O&M manuals

One year after the completion of every project, we perform a walk-through inspection to detect any existing or potential issues and make sure they are remedied before the issuance of the Defect Liability Certificate to the various subcontractors.
