BHC Business Processes

From initial Tendering to Project Completion, every aspect of every job is managed smoothly and efficiently

Tendering

Design and Build Service

BHC provide a design and build service to meet your specification utilising our own dedicated in-house design engineers and management team. Our team of structural designer engineers use the latest software with integrated BIM output to exchange information with all disciplines required on your project. This allows us to deliver an economical solution that meets both budget and programme.

Conventional Build Projects

Upon receipt of the engineer’s drawings, BHC’s Estimating Department will calculate costs using our own in-house designed estimating software. Once the costs are generated, the Estimating Department will issue a letter of offer which clearly indicates our scope of work along with 3-D drawings, in order for the client to have a clear understanding of what our offer includes.

Drawing Office

On receipt of order, a Project Manager is assigned to ensure that pro-active planning commences at an early stage, providing a value-engineered package to our clients. Our technical expertise has been recognised throughout many technical workshops, where our alternative solutions have been adopted on many occasions.

Fabrication

BHC’s Technical Administrators and Document Controllers transfer all electronic data to our fully-automated workshop for fabrication to begin. This process eliminates human error and ensures that a quality product is delivered to site in erectable ‘lots’ of steelwork. We also apply all surface treatment requirements, whether it be primer paint, or intumescent coatings in our workshop or subcontracted galvanised coatings. We will deliver steelwork, either on our own articulated vehicles, or by trusted transport companies in planned erectable loads on a just-in-time basis.

Erection

Upon arrival of steelwork on-site, erection will commence, based on the agreed phasing and programme sequence in accordance with our method statement and risk assessments etc. Where applicable, we will also supply and install additional items such as metal decking, precast/steel stairs, precast planks and edge protection. All erection work, including these additional services, is carried-out by our own multi-tasked in-house erection squads, ensuring that there is minimal impact to our clients in the event of re-phasing. All operatives are trained to a high standard resulting in BHC’s 100% achievement of CSCS certification.
