We undertake feasibility studies in order to confirm whether schemes are both commercially and technically viable. We offer a full design service including the production of schematic plans and initial budget costings, along with project programmes, strategy and planning advice.
Design & Contract Administration (CA)
Under traditional contract procurement we can act as design and contract administrators for building, maintenance and repair projects, including liaising with statutory and planning authorities. This includes obtaining relevant consents, site measurement and preparation of drawings if required, designing and specifying the works as appropriate, obtaining tenders, administering the building contract works to completion.
Employers Agent (Design & Build)
We can act as the client's agent to ensure that the building contract requirements are properly administered where the design and construction is carried out by others.
Principal Designer (CDM 2015)
As part of the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015 we act as principal designer to plan, manage, monitor and coordinate health and safety in the pre-construction phase of a building project. This includes identifying, eliminating or controlling foreseeable risks; ensuring designers carry out their duties and prepare risk assessments; provide relevant information to other duty holders and liaise with the principal contractor to help in the planning, management, monitoring and coordination of the construction phase.
Building Repairs & Cyclical Maintenance
We can implement repair and maintenance work on buildings for property owners and occupiers as a single element of repair or part of a larger, planned maintenance programme.
We undertake Development Monitoring works on behalf of a funder and/or purchaser to ensure that quality standards are adhered to throughout the design and construction process. We appraise and advise on the developer's proposals, including the proposed project team, contractor, project budget, programme, specification, building contract, any warranties and bonds.
