P1 & P5 Oldbury Viaduct

Roy Hankinson Limited is the nominated specialist painting contractor for the Highways Agency in Areas 9 & 10.  

The contract is carried out using a target cost/actual cost reimbursement, and all actual costs are subject to audit by the client's representative.  

Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) plays a major role in the development of each scheme by allowing early identification of any potential issues that may affect either programme or costs. The benefit to the client is that cost predictability is greatly improved and additional costs incurred through compensation events are greatly reduced because detailed development of the scheme prior to the pricing phase can identify potential additional works and these can be incorporated into the initial target cost.
