Ways in which different clients derive benefit from our services include:
We save architects huge amounts of time and effort in putting together technically thorough, stunning design packages for their client.
We can be of particular help on specialist schemes like schools and hospitals where compliance with specific regulations is of paramount importance.
Our unique approach eliminates many of the Information Requests that have to be processed from trade contractors by understanding what information they need and how best to present it.
Engaging our services early in tender stages results in substantial savings in time and money and gives the client peace of mind that the specification they have will work perfectly.
This is especially successful in Design & Build and 2-stage tendering scenarios where our expertise is used to give our client a distinct edge. A small investment made early pays back many times over before the contract is completed.
In many cases we will then stay with a scheme through construction and act in a QA capacity, establishing a standard that trade contractors will be expected to meet.
Sub-Contractors / Specialist trade contractors
Trade contractors benefit from using us as an outsourced design team acting in their interest in pricing work, preparing design proposals and shop drawings for client approval and for site teams to work from, in monitoring QA and assembling top quality O & M Manuals for submission at the end of the job.
Building Owners / End Users
The reassurance of knowing that they have an expert acting as their eyes and ears in the design and procurement of interior packages is of enormous benefit to our end user clients.
We perform a range of tasks on their behalf, all aimed at improving quality and reducing risk at every stage of the process.
This is where unnecessary cost can often be built into the design, and it’s where we identify this and eliminate it.
When Quantity Surveyors and Cost Consultants are trying to act on behalf of their client our input is invaluable in ensuring nothing has been missed and that everything is as cost-effective as it can possibly be.
We help assemble specifications and Bills of Quantity and are happy to analyse existing design proposals to identify potential risks and savings.
