project management services

project management & quantity surveying services understand the importance of managing our clients projects properly. To allow us to do so correctly, we need to record progress and performance against our clients expectations. For the most part our clients expectations are set out within the tendering documents, however this may not always be the case. Projects can evolve as factors like complexity and compliance are examined in further detail.


The main source of information required to protect a client’s interests is shown below, but it is through effective Project Management that this information is used to deliver success.


CDM Information – Pre Construction File ( only required if the project is notifiable under CDM Regulations). Further guidance on this issue can be sought from the HSE via their website.


Planning & Construction drawings & details – For further details visit our architectural design section of this website.

detailed build estimate can produce a detailed breakdown of costs for each project they oversee. These cost are broken down into plant, materials and labour. By carrying out this exercise, this allows the ability to compare prices received from contractors during the tendering phase. By comparing contractor prices with the detailed build estimate, can assist contractors in lowering their costs to win their clients work. If the detailed build estimate is not produced, then have to rely on unproven costs obtained from contractors without any comparative costs being available to assess whether or not those costs are fair.


This document is particularly valuable when working to tight budgets. It gives the ability to work with contractors when value engineering projects down to meet client budgetary requirements. It also gives us a basis to assess additional costs if additional works are instructed by a client after the contract is awarded.


It is important to note that the lowest tender is not always the best tender. To assess this, the detailed build budget can prove useful in spotting errors made by the contractor.
