How we do it

Progressive thinking combined with vast skills and years of experience.

No matter the size and complexity of the build, Cook Brothers Construction is known for outstanding execution. We are committed to achieving greatness with every job we take on, and to provide exceptional projects by building on our six base pillars of excellence.

Safety Contact Us

One Team

We understand the value in working closely with the client, consultants & contractors to find the best solution, each by applying their own experience, vision and unique, complimentary expertise.

Due to the nature of the construction industry, there is a real need to have Health & Safety at the forefront of everyone’s minds, and through our Zero Harm brand, we have taken a critical approach to this requirement. All knowledge, understanding and practice of Zero Harm starts at the top, filtering from the Advisory Board, to all management teams and out onto job sites. This ensures that everyone plays a crucial part in keeping our sites and teams safe for all employees and site visitors.

On Time

Time is money, and both are too valuable to waste. We will provide the necessary resources to ensure the project is delivered on time.

Once we have been engaged to undertake the works, we hold a Subcontractor Start Up meeting. We encourage consultants and clients to attend it, as it is the perfect opportunity for everyone to get inducted on the specifics of the project and actively take part in setting up the detailed programme for the project. As part of the meeting, we incorporate a Last Planner session, which is later held weekly with all our subcontractors. The Last Planner session’s aim is to engage subcontractors in taking accountability for the area they are responsible for and ensures they follow the deadlines they agreed to.

To Budget

Precise estimation of project expenses enables us to always adhere to set budgets. We also offer value engineering, an opportunity to create savings when and where possible.

It is in everyone’s interests to complete the works as quickly as possible, which in-turn saves time and money. A well prepared programme and accurate quantity surveying and expenses estimation are of the outmost importance and set the foundation for timely projects that adhere to agreed budgets. During the project we will provide value engineering when we see opportunities to do so. This will enable the client to put these savings to other areas of the project, if they choose too. In order for clients to make informed decisions, all variations to the contract will be presented with transparency and with supporting documentation.

Highest Quality

Quality assurance is integral to our process. The techniques and materials are unique for each project, but we always strive to deliver every project with an unparalleled precision and quality.

Getting it right the first time ensures successful project completion on time and to budget. Cook Brothers Construction has a very thorough Quality Assurance Policy, which includes a comprehensive set of quality checks and inspections.

As the project progresses we use our own Defect App to track and eliminate any defects as we go. This software emails a report to all parties involved, and enables us to remediate immediately and hand over a completed project on time and with zero defects.

Always Innovative

We constantly implement modern approaches and technologies into our workflow, push the limits and explore new, innovative solutions to ensure outstanding projects and add value for our clients.

All our build teams have tablets with access to internet and our intranet system, H&S App, Defects App, and timesheets. This enables them to obtain and update documentation, instructions and reports regarding the building project, thus eliminating any potential costly delays. We strive to automate and digitalize repetitive and time consuming tasks in order to eliminate clutter, facilitate the flow of information, increase productivity and avoid human error.

Health & Safety

Cook Brothers Construction’s absolute priority is maintaining healthy and safe sites, and team members.

All visitors and personnel on site must have a full safety gear kit and will be inducted via the Cook Brothers Construction video inductions. These are project specific and ensure everyone receives a clear, thorough and consistent induction.

All site personnel present are required to undertake daily pre-start briefings, which is, according to Worksafe, the best system they have seen. During the the daily pre-start communication and planning sessions, hazards are identified and daily tasks communicated.

Zero harm at CBC

We have increased internal and external training on all matters concerning Zero Harm.

Our Project Managers and Build Team Managers are responsible for weekly site safety audits, a systematic inspection to determine that site activities are conforming to health and safety requirements.

Cook Brothers Construction employees an in-house Health and Safety Coordinator responsible for management and supervising of H&S practices on our sites.
