Collaborative Contracting


Mutual trust and respect to reduce costs and improve value

Chiltern Contracts see that the UK's construction industry is transforming rapidly to meet the demands of a changing world. As a wider and wider diversity of skills is needed to tackle large projects of ever-increasing complexity, Chiltern believes that the best way to achieve success is by taking a collaborative approach with its clients and partners.

Collaborative contracting seeks to replace adversarial and confrontational profit-seeking behaviours, with practices that achieve co-operation and mutual trust. Projects can be completed more efficiently and with enhanced value. In 2011 the UK Government placed collaborative contracting at the heart of its strategy to reduce overall construction costs.

That is why Chiltern Contracts practice a collaborative approach as a core part of every package we offer. We focus on working with our clients and stakeholders to identify and actively manage risks early, develop solutions and work together to build lasting relationships. For Chiltern, a strong and enduring working relationship is paramount and we will never sacrifice either our standards or our clients' interests in pursuit of a final account.

As we practice these values on every project we are awarded, Chiltern continues to be recommended by our clients. Ask us for references on any of our recent projects.


When we take on packages / services - design starts from the early stages, talking with clients, looking at procurement, agreeing the basis of each project/contract - procurement into the detailed design, CAD/Shop drawings, assisting our clients with specs/ detail - substrate to the finished product - ensure that a smooth transition from start until finish.
