What we do for you

JCP’s Mission is to Support High Profile and Complex Projects to achieve extraordinary performance through collaboration
We have been highly successful at this over the past 20 years in SE Asia and 35 years in UK.
Programs that use our collaborative experience run more smoothly, deliver on or ahead of schedule and work within or under budget.

Clients choose us because we deliver results

The Collaboration Journey – Team Integration, Alignment & Collaborative Culture Development

This theme has been the bedrock for JCP and its core business for over 30 years, initially in UK then worldwide. This includes ‘Partnering’, ‘Alliancing’, ‘Collaborative Contracting’ and  ‘Integrated Project Delivery’.

The philosophy applies not only to multi party project teams comprising client, architect, engineer, main contractor and sub-contractors; but also to whole organisations, depatments or teams.

Without the whole team being aligned to their objectives, code of behaviour and to the way they will work together, then it is unlikely that they will ever achieve their objectives. Our process is to assess where the team currently is and design an initial Launch / Alignment Workshop to start the process. This will generally include changing minsets from traditional views. After the workshop a Join Champion’s Team creates and implements a follow up plan to embed, monitor and sustain the new way of working, which will include Champion’s Meetings and Project Review Workshops.

Our approach goes much further than just team-building, high performing teams will never be formed outside the work context. So, as well as the focus on behaviours and relationships, our workshops always focus on real business issues; identifying challenges, problems, barriers or risks. The deliverable will be an action plan to collaboratively address the issues and improve performance to ensure the achievement of their business objectives.

Value engineering or value management is a core part of our project improvement strategy.  VE is often poorly understood and implemented and perceived to be just  a cost-cutting exercise.  JCP use the internationally recognised systematic process compliant with ‘SAVE’ requirements, within a highly collaborative environment to involve as many ‘stakeholders’ as is practical, who can truly contribute to adding value. The process is about using the synergy of this wide range of stakeholders to be creative in generating new options and possibilities, preferably at various stages during the design process. The VE process starts by analysing the ‘functions’ of the project and then select the best creative ideas which satisfy the ‘functions’, not necessarily at the lowest cost, but for the best value.

  • JCP Approach to the VM/VE Process
    • Our approach will be in accordance with the specified requirements and best international practice.Value Engineering aims at establishing the functional objectives of a project and identifying and reviewing all the options that may meet the specified requirements. The options are analyzed against agreed criteria so that those that satisfy the requirements, at best value for money can be developed into a recommended solution. It also helps to enhance communication and understanding of the project for all parties involved. Put simply it is about maximizing the function:


                      USE OF RECOURCES

      The strategy adopted in value engineering has a number of important characteristics including the following:

      • The study must be performed by a group of individuals who represent a broad spread of the skills and disciplines involved in the project
      • The workshop provides a forum for the participants to express opinions and concerns freely.  There must be no hierarchy and all participants are free to make suggestions without fear or favour;
      • Because VE involves freedom of expression, all participants are free to challenge assumptions and even current practice;
      • Because of the structured group process, synergy is obtained which results in each person having a better understanding of other peoples’ perspectives;
      • Information Stage. Workshop participants share information about the project and actively listen to peers providing their experience. The project team is asked to give short, previously prepared, presentations and take questions to establish a common understanding of the project objectives, constraints and current design ideas.
      • Analysis Stage. Participants establish a common understanding of the functional objectives of the project.  A FAST diagram will be used as a tool for the group to discuss and agree the functional objectives and judgment criteriafor determining the best value solutions.
      • Creative Thinking Stage. Workshop participants are asked to consider the strengths and weaknesses of current design ideas and to brainstorm value improvements. All ideas are welcome, as even those that are seemingly unsuitable may spark creative solutions.
      • Evaluation Stage. When all ideas have been listed, participants are asked to evaluate the options, using the judgment criteria identified during the analysis stage.
      • Development Stage.  The short listed value improvement ideasare then agreed with action plans to ensure that responsible people are identified to validate the chosen ideas for implementation.

We are the premier provider of VE services in HK and Singapore.
We have conducted over 30 studies for HK Government Dept projects, over 20 in Singapore and Malaysia and 2 in the Middle east

We are here to support the industry for the successful transition from traditional contract to NEC through training, tender preparation and contract advisory services for clients, consultants, contractors and quantity surveyors. Our professionals have been providing NEC advisory services in Hong Kong since 2009 and have monitored the evolvement of the practices in NEC contract administration. The in-depth knowledge of the contract and well-connected network from government officials to subcontractors make us a resourceful support to enable win-win outcome in your project. Of particular importance is the creation of a collaborative environment to meet the requirement that the parties “shall act as stated in this contract and in a spirit of mutual trust and cooperation”, which is mandated in all NEC options. JCP’s unsurpassed experience of forging collaborative relationships and cultures uniquely qualifies us to ensure that your NEC contracts actual work as intended and deliver exceptional outcomes!!


  • The NEC Training
    Although the Government has been using NEC contract for more than 10 years now, it is still relatively new to a lot of building contractors, especially the Option C target contract. There have been many examples in the industry of wrong pricing of NEC contracts due to lack of understanding, leading to disqualification of tenders, insufficient funding for contract execution, a lack of cooperation and even disputes, jeopardizing the Project programme. JCP’s unique training, with a focus on collaborative behaviours, is the key to ensuring all parties are familiar with the contract and the philosophy underpinning it, which is the cornerstone for successful project implementation.
  • The Collaborative Journey (Partnering)
    Implementing NEC and collaboration are symbiotic, particularly in a target cost contract, where the cost saving will primarily come from a step change in working collaboratively delivering innovation and enhanced productivity. JCP will support the integrated project team along the collaborative journey, with the tools and techniques of workshops, reviews, leadership and measurement described elsewhere on this site. It is important to note that Development Bureau’s NEC practice notes (click) suggest the need for embracing this philosophy with Partnering Workshops and Champion Group Meetings
  • NEC Support
    With our NEC specialists, JCP, is the leader in the market of providing best in quality contract advice, training and partnering services. They have a proven track record of success most notably in DSD Happy Valley Underground Stormwater Storage System, which was completed 1 year ahead of the programme, having a gain share of about HK$40 million, which was nominated as the NEC Project of Year in 2017 by ICE and highly commended by the public. Another project which our advisors supported was CEDD Contract NE/2015/01, which also achieved 1-year advance completion and is was NEC Project of Year 2018.
  • JCP NEC Clients/Projects
    JCP have supported many Government projects with our NEC Advisory Services. See list of projects

These include the 1st NEC project in HK and the first to use NEC Option 3 Target Cost contract
Fuk Man Road with Cost saving: 5% and Time saving: 6 months advance completion.  We provided NEC advisory services (2009-2012)

Happy Valley project (2012-2018) with cost saving: 110 million (10%) and time saving: 14 months advance completion.
