Aspect Construction Embrace NWCH’s Collaborative Culture
The NWCH enables collaborative working at its best, all in order to generate increased quality and value for money for our clients. In 2016 Aspect Construction were successful in securing a position on our low value framework, and since, have immersed themselves in the culture of collaboration.
During this time, the team have been heavily involved in many NWCH Special Interest Groups, where representatives from all of the contractors across all of the frameworks meet to share best practice about a particular topic. These include Business Development, Digital Construction, Supply Chain, Marketing, and Social Value. The groups also hold educational events for clients, such as the Social Value event pictured, held at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital earlier this year. With contractors of varying sizes and specialities in different sectors, the Special Interest Groups bring together wide ranging experience that Aspect Construction, and the other contractors, have been able to benefit from.
“Heavy involvement in Special Interest Groups has allowed our staff to develop themselves, working with, and learning from, their peers at other contractors. This learning has seen benefits to the individual employees and Aspect Construction as a business.”
Chairing two Special Interest Groups, Aspect Construction has taken a leading role in the collaboration between contractors in the North West Construction Hub. Through the Chairpersonship of the Digital Construction Special Interest Group, Graham Murphy, Aspect Construction’s Operations Director has led the production of a number of One Page information sheets that all adhere to the same structure and standard format. The one-page documents have been produced to provide a clear and concise narrative to clients through the various different stages, processes, implementation and added value available using Digital Technologies. This work was commissioned by the National Association of Construction Frameworks (NACF), whose members across the UK will also benefit from their production.
“Being involved with the Digital Construction Special Interest Group has allowed us to work with, and learn from the other contractors: validating and expanding our knowledge and use of Digital Construction methods. This allows us to offer an ever-improving service to NWCH clients.” Graham Murphy, Aspect Construction’s Operations Director, and Chair of the NWCH Digital Construction Special Interest Group
