EPCS's vast experience in residential, commercial and industrial construction has been instrumental in the successful completion of thousands of projects. Construction excellence is what we do best, bringing our ingenuity, expertise and experienced teams of engineering and construction professionals to bear for the benefit of the project.
Our construction services comprise the full range of building and refurbishment activities, providing a complete project delivery solution that radically reduces interface risk. Capabilities include 'buildability' studies, Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA), remediation and enabling works, logistics management, integrated construction delivery, building technologies installation and testing and commissioning of major building projects.
Rapid advances in technology are revolutionizing the construction industry, including the end-to-end application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and rapid integration of preassembled components and modular solutions in the pre-construction, delivery and operational phases. Symmetry2020 is EPCS's approach to digital project information. Symmetry2020 goes beyond the geometrical and asset data associated with the very best Building Information Modelling (BIM) to offer unparalleled benefits to clients throughout the lifetime of the project. These benefits are seen before contract award, during design and construction and once the completed asset is handed over, resulting in reduced cost, faster delivery and added value to clients and end users.
EPCS is a pioneer in the integration of lean manufacturing processes and techniques in the delivery of client projects. We are actively defining the myriad applications of pre-assembled products and modular components into the built environment through our unique DfMA methodology. Through a commitment to continuous improvement we are seeking to eliminate waste, drive up quality and maximise value to clients through their buildings portfolios. DfMA requires true collaboration, with a commitment from all parties to work as one cohesive team. Our teams are able to balance the social, economic and environmental challenges of the different stakeholders to create the right cost, quality and efficiency outcomes.
Our lean approach also extends into logistics management, where we operate to a principle of 'Just in Time', optimising our resources by delivering just what is needed, where it is needed, exactly when it is needed. In increasingly complex projects, 'Just in Time' overcomes the challenges of tight site access, disruption to adjacent facilities, and impacts on the surrounding community and related infrastructure.
At the heart of our service is our skilled workforce – they're our most valuable asset. That's why we put safety at the very core of the organisation. It's more than just our number one priority, it could be described as our DNA, inculcating everything we do. In pursuit of our Mission Zero goal to be incident and injury free by 2020, we are continually developing new approaches to safety to meet the needs of our clients, the supply chain, our workforce, and ultimately the end-users of the facilities we deliver.
