Our Process

How we deliver successful construction projects

Inten ltd have a proven track record and a genuine desire to deliver excellent results on every project. Our portfolio and client base clearly demonstrate this.

With 100% commitment to every contract, we’ve developed strong working relationships with all our clients over the years as well as the architects, surveyors and suppliers we’re in contact with on a daily basis. We believe our collaborative and proactive approach with an open and inclusive attitude to everything we do, are essential elements to achieving our growth and success to date.

It isn’t just about building good relationships. A great deal of planning must go into it to prepare the way to deliver a smooth, stress free and successful project.

To do this we split each project into three equally important categories.

Finalisation of outline and professional design, both building services and architectural, resulting in a Client sign off.

Provide all necessary advice and support to conclude the design.

Implementation of procurement process where we source and purchase requirements for the project. Procurement and monitoring of key subcontractors.

Preparation of all Health, Safety and Environmental documents.

Acquisition of all necessary permits required e.g.: Pavement licenses, road closures, planning applications and where necessary, Heritage and Conservation approvals.

Preparation of the Construction Phase Plan (CDM) required under health and safety legislation.

Mobilisation of site logistics to ensure a safe and secure site.
