General Contractors in Kenya

We are a consortium of General Contractors and Project Managers, with the flexibility to serve you through traditional contracting, management contracting, and construction management.

What is a General Contractor?

A general contractor (GC) is a professional or company responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of a construction project, including managing labor, materials, equipment, and services.

In the traditional contracting model, a project owner hires an architect to design the project and prepare construction documents, which are then used to solicit bids from general contractors. After reviewing the bids, the owner selects a GC based on criteria such as price, experience, and proposed timeline.

When to Choose Traditional Contracting in Construction

The Traditional Contracting Model is suited for projects with a well-defined scope and fixed budgets, where the construction sequence follows a linear path, and design elements are finalized before construction begins.

This is what you engage when you’re seeking cost certainty and minimal changes during construction.

However, Traditional Contracting may result in a longer overall project duration compared to other procurement methods, with the main contractor having limited input in the design phase.

Our Traditional Contracting Process​


Tender Bidding Phase

Upon receiving tender documents (project specifications, drawings, schedules, etc) from your Architect, Engineer, and Quantity Surveyor, our team examines the scope of the project.

We conduct a site visit to gain a better understanding of your project’s physical context, site conditions, accessibility, and environmental considerations.

We identify and evaluate potential risks related to construction challenges, regulatory compliance, and possible cost variations.

Drawing from these analyses, we develop a detailed bid proposal. Our tender submissions provide cost estimates for labor, materials, equipment, and subcontracting specialized works.


Contract Award Phase ​

On receiving a letter of award of contract, we carefully review it to confirm it matches our understanding of the project’s scope, terms, and conditions.

We engage in negotiations with your project manager to iron out any details that are critical to a fair and mutually beneficial construction process.

Once an agreement is reached on the contract terms, we proceed to sign the contract and formally commence our partnership on your project.

We also arrange for any required performance bonds, payment bonds, and insurance covers as stipulated in the contract.


Scheduling & Mobilization Phase

We develop a detailed project schedule, outlining the specific milestones, task sequences, critical paths, and deadlines for each phase of construction.

We identify the types and quantities of materials and equipment that’ll be required at different project stages.

We also assess workforce requirements and determine the optimal number of workers, their specific skill sets, and the timing of their deployment to various construction works.

We prepare the construction site by setting up security measures and temporary facilities such as site offices, storage areas, and worker amenities.


Building & Construction Phase​​

We coordinate the logistics of material, equipment, and personnel movement to and from the site.

We direct and supervise the daily construction activities on-site, ensuring that the work is performed according to project specifications.

Using advanced project management tools, we monitor progress while swiftly rectifying any deviations from the schedule.

We implement environmental protection measures and site safety protocols in compliance with local regulations.

Specialized works are entrusted to our network of vetted subcontractors.

We enforce a strict quality control process that includes submitting samples of materials to accredited laboratories for testing.


Testing & Commissioning​ Phase

We prepare a testing and commissioning (T&C) plan that outlines the procedures, schedules, responsibilities, and standards for testing all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems.

We execute the testing plan to verify that each system operates as intended.

Any issues or deficiencies identified during testing are documented and addressed.

We set up training sessions for your staff on the building’s operation, maintenance, and emergency procedures.

Upon completion, we prepare a final commissioning report that summarizes the testing procedures, findings, corrective actions taken, and any recommendations for future maintenance or adjustments.


Handover & Defect Mitigation Phase

We apply for and facilitate final inspections of the project site by local authorities.

We hand you the project closeout documentation – including as-built drawings, warranty certificates, and operation and maintenance (O&M) manuals.

We conduct a thorough site clean-up, remove all construction debris, and demobilize temporary project infrastructure.

The project enters the defect liability period (also known as the warranty period), wherein we remain on standby to address any emergent defects.

We finalize the settlement of the project’s accounts with your Architect and Quantity Surveyor.
