Clients who prioritise cost over speed or who require fixed price lump sums will generally experience longer development programmes, as designs must be substantially completed before tenders can be obtained. This process may take a considerable amount of time as careful thought is required to develop and refine the scheme design. The design, in turn, influences the contractors construction methods which determine length of time taken to complete the contract on site.
Meteorological conditions vary immensely throughout the world and although Ireland experiences a temperate climate all year round, the weather conditions on individual sites in different parts of the country may be very different from each other. Of particular concern may be sites that are prone to flooding, or are exposed or elevated sites where high winds may curtail the use of plant.
