OSM Construction is a specialist modular contractor, offering principal contracting services both direct to clients and manufacturers.

We can work both end-to-end on projects or for a specific part of a client’s programme, offering consultancy and construction services throughout the pre-construction and delivery phases.

We are product agnostic and work with a range of suppliers in the offsite manufacturing industry.

Client services

(for Developers and Local Authorities)

OSM offer a variety of services to meet your needs, working with a single or multiple offsite manufacturer depending on the scheme and its requirements.

Design & Build

Design & Build

Full design and build service including cost analysis on a variety of offsite manufactured products that meet your requirements. Typically, we would work on a two-stage design and build basis and all fees and costs are fully itemised. 

A full two-stage design and build package mitigates the risk in the first stage (design) by giving you transparency, cost certainty and the ability to tailor the design to meet the budget. As a principle contractor OSM can work with any offsite manufacturer and explore a number of options to ensure we always present the client with the most appropriate option for the budget and brief.

OSM Construction take a positive approach to value engineering and identify opportunities for cost savings throughout the design and product specification stage.

Single-stage contracting

Prime Cost Contracting

Prime cost contracting is great for projects that require a quick start on site, often where a planning decision has been delayed, but the project needs to start to avoid missed opportunity or lease agreements.

It can be that the extent of the work is not known until the project is underway, especially if demolition of an existing site is yet to of happened. This also enables us to offer clients greater flexibility and control over programme efficiency, quality and construction risks through a professional on and offsite consultancy approach.

However, with this more collaborative approach and greater control comes a greater demand on the whole project team to actively manage the risks associated with the construction process (and retained by the client). If you wish to retain control of a project and are not risk averse, then this service could be a good option.

Prime Cost Contracting is suitable for projects procured via the traditional or conventional method, using a cost reimbursement or cost-plus payment structure. We essentially run the procurement process for you ensuring best value when comparing specifications for packages of works. We do this all the whilst bearing in mind the client brief presented to us.

The payment structure is very simple, we agree a percentage mark up on all contractor packages and individual costs associated to your project we charge the agreed percentage to these costs.

Manufacturer

(for manufacturers and product suppliers)

OSM is product agnostic and has a wealth of experience working with a variety of manufacturers, each with differing needs. We offer a variety of services to offsite manufacturers and product suppliers to help take projects from the factory floor to handover, and everything in between.

Design & Build

Design & Build

OSM has a great deal of experience in tendering for direct client services and are happy to partner with manufacturers and product suppliers to share this knowledge through collaborative, robust and considered submissions – If you have a tender or opportunity then we’d be happy to discuss how we can work together.

Building up a good working relationship for a joint tendering approach can benefit us both and ensure a competitive tender is submitted giving us a great prospect of securing projects. With a full two-stage design and build package the risk elements are mitigated in the first stage of design giving us and the client cost certainty.

We take on the Principle Contractor role dealing with all contract matters and attending to the health and safety on-site complying with all CDM requirements. This way when you arrive on-site with the product your install is swift, and you can be back in the factory focussing on your product and not worrying about the site.

With this offering to the client we can ensure costs are assessed correctly and we are offering value for money and efficiency in getting your product to their site.
