Isaac Mercer is a critical part of larger developments and instrumental in achieving critical start dates. This is managed by a series of professionally organised meetings with great structure and content to include everybody’s critical items such as Health and Safety, Programming, Licence applications and the day to day site organisation scheduling. They bring to the table a vast knowledge of all areas that need to be considered which are not always apparent at the early development stages of singular or multi-phased developments.

This project requires Isaac Mercer to manage all consortium matters including Legal, Land, Planning, Design and Technical, Phasing and Scheduling, Commercial and Procurement and Construction. Isaac Mercer was responsible for installing and co-ordinating the major consortium infrastructure in order to create ‘oven-ready’ land parcels ready to sell straight to house builders for development. Part of the challenge was to manage the varying deliverables and key dates for each land parcel to ensure continual payment releases under the land contracts to fund the works whilst ensuring the works were delivered as efficiently as possible.
