The importance of a good relationship between a main contractor and the council can’t be underestimated. Through extensive discussions before, during, and after completion of a project; maximum benefits can be achieved by combining a main contractor’s industry expertise with the council’s local knowledge and business network. Good communication, shared best practice ideas, and early agreement of project schedules are all vital to ensure that delays are avoided and a project runs as smoothly as possible.

Building excellent working relationships

At ADC, we have worked with several local councils across the North West of England and North Wales. The projects range from large-scale commercial developments to residential housing initiatives. In many situations, our relationship with the council has been essential to achieve a successful completion of the project.

A recent example of our collaboration with the council was a full renovation of Black Horse Hill Junior School in West Kirby. The project entailed installing new windows, doors, and curtain walling throughout the school. We were chosen for the project in part because of our excellent relationship with Wirral Borough Council.

As a local Wirral based manufacturer, we have worked closely with Wirral Borough Council on several projects and as such, have developed an excellent working relationship. Large-scale projects can easily be set-back for a range of unforeseen circumstances. Whether they are due to manufacturing problems, political issues, or planning problems; having a good relationship between council and main contractor will help your project to run quicker and more smoothly, with a successful outcome for everyone involved.
