Project Management & Clients Agent
We are heavily involved in overseeing, managing and directing refurbishment, new build and extension projects for a range of clients over the commercial, residential, industrial and leisure sectors.
Tasks include preparing Scopes of Work, Specifications, Contract Preliminaries, and Tender Documents. Tendering these works on a competitive or negotiated tender basis to contractors in order to seek best price and best resourced suppliers.
Works are then diligently managed over the construction phase of the project by the Project Manager/Contract Administrator.
When the client is unsure how to proceed with a project we often undertake feasibility studies to determine the change of use or redevelopment of buildings or sites in line with Planning, Building Warrant/Control, Conservation Area Consents and all Local Authority approvals which would be needed for such a change. We also detail potential works and costs to give the client a good understanding of the options available to them.
