Contract Administration is the heart of our business and as experts, we are able to efficiently apply the principles to our work in all sectors.
Our wide and varied service provides clients with a reliable and pro-active approach, exceeding expectations on all aspects of project delivery.
Contract Administration requires a detailed understanding of the client's business and objectives to deliver a successful project, designed to understand their requirements, completed on time and within budget.
Good communication between all contractual parties is fundamental to meeting the contract objectives. We promote all methods of modern communication and utilise our web-based collaborative tool on all of our projects to assist with the sharing of information.
We ensure that Contract Administration becomes a foundation of our surveyor’s knowledge and advice through detailed exposure and training.
Using our experience and knowledge we can accurately evaluate risk within a project to ensure our client is completely informed.
Prior to purchasing sites we advise on the level of risk adopted by our clients and also the potential benefits that can be achieved to assist with their strategic decisions.
Our risk engineering techniques ensure that any risks can be managed, alleviated at design stage where possible and then continually assessed and challenged throughout the project.
As risk managers, we work with our clients on project objectives to achieve specific targets and desired results. Since risks need to be identifiable, quantified and managed, we compile risk registers, analyse the risks in order to build a risk profile for the project and complete a risk analysis.
We are long-standing members of the Institute of Value Management.
Our value engineering seeks to maximise value within a particular solution, looking to reduce the cost of a building whilst maintaining quality. Our value engineers analyse information, offer alternatives, evaluate and present the best solutions for our clients.
By cost planning, value engineering, programming and construction sequencing, we seek to provide best value to each and every project. We regularly hold workshops to challenge the value of design and also seek to apply our construction management expertise to add best value to all schemes.
As a Practice we aim to eliminate unnecessary costs at design stage and aspire to obtain the best possible value in terms of performance, workmanship and programme. We apply this philosophy to each commission.
We have extensive and detailed experience of managing contracts during the pre-contract period and once on site, our central aim of construction management is to ensure that the works are delivered on time, according to the contract specification and at the price agreed in the contract. This procurement route enables us to accelerate the overall programme whilst retaining control over design, quality and costs. Procuring the individual trade packages means that savings gained through our supply chain will be experienced by our clients.
As experienced construction managers we are able to effectively manage existing and new sub-contract supply chains, driving construction quality and providing improved value for money for our clients. We help our clients manage their increased risk exposure by tailoring the level of risk to each individual project and work collaboratively with all stakeholders within the project design team to deliver the project to meet our client’s objectives on cost, quality and time.
