Rice Projects provides project and construction management services to a broad range of clients and organisations in both the private and public sectors. Our portfolio of projects consists mainly of private, new build houses but also includes extensions, a heritage restoration project and a public sports facility.
We have a particular specialism in bespoke contemporary architecture and detailing.
Rice Projects produces buildings of the highest quality using a procurement route that can provide the client with real savings in both, time and money as well as providing flexibility and control. Unlike a traditional main contractor we manage projects directly for the client. As such, we are focused on meeting the client’s needs rather than maximising the profits of a main contractor. Our services include:
- Early involvement and advice at the design stage
- Cost plans
- Build programmes
- Tendering and appointment of subcontractors
- Site setup
- Coordination and supervision of building works
- Cost control and monitoring
- Finish and handover
Rice Projects understands that it is the performance of the team that is at the root of project success. From the subcontractors, through the design consultants, to the client, Rice Projects provides coordination and support to ensure that everyone is working towards the same goal efficiently and effectively.
We put great emphasis on understanding the architectural concept of a scheme so that the design intent informs the construction process and detail, ensuring that the concept is not lost along the way. We place a particular emphasis on the relationship between the construction manager, the architect and the client.
