FEATURE FormFive

Building on an unforeseen level of growth


Having launched with a clear plan to disrupt the sector and off er something different, FormFive has certainly come up with some surprising results – including surpassing its initial targets well before the end of its fi rst year. Founded at the start of this year by Matthew Abraham and Matthew


Kemshed, FormFive is a construction company that positions itself in a project from concept to completion – collaborating with developers, project management companies, architects, investors and the wider supply chain to bring form and cohesion through a fi ve core service model. Now a team of four, FormFive’s services include viability studies,


project planning, design management, cost management and construction – and the interior furnishing arm, FormFive Furnishings, has just been launched.


12 ALL THINGS BUSINESS


A current project involves the construction of


a one-off private house in Towcester on the site of the existing property, which is to be demolished. Involved since the design stage, FormFive has brought together everyone from the architects to suppliers to energy assessors. Matthew Abraham said: “T e house is being


built using modern methods of construction (MMC) with SIPs panels for insulation, air-source heat pumps and PV solar panels and will have excellent energy rating when it’s complete. “A project like this shows the benefit of


our involvement in that we can save time by coordinating everything, combining the time spent on design with costing the project and sourcing the materials. We reckon we have saved up to eight weeks on the process already simply by bringing it all together. “It seems natural to us to approach a project


like this, but in truth it doesn’t often happen and that’s why we’re disrupting the market and seeing it take off . For us, it makes sense to keep a check on the design, making sure it’s remaining true to what the customer wants and staying within time
