Construction Information Service Packages
Production of Construction Information:
Having successfully received a tender estimate (see Tender Packages) the next stage of the project is to mobilise the successful bidding contractor and organise a contract between you ‘The Employer’ and the chosen contractor.
In preparation for this there are many tasks to complete, including final production of information from all parties, agreeing the contractor's programme, formalising the contract, start dates and scheduling meetings for the construction process. Here at Acres Architecture our qualified professionals will be able to consolidate this information and organise the beginning of works on site with the successful contractor on your behalf. We will then take on contract administration duties once the contractor has started work on site.
During the construction works of the project there are many jobs to be completed after the contractor has been given the drawings to work from. These include Site inspections, further meetings on and off site, Architect’s Instructions and variations, Valuating Variations, Controlling Costs, Workmanship and Materials, Certificates and Payments under the Contract, Delays and extensions of time, and dealing with financial claims. Building Contracts are put in place to provide mechanisms for all such eventualities, to cover you and the Contractor.
Fundamentally there are many mechanisms within Building Contracts that can take into account unforeseen issues on site and expenditures or required changes as a result of variations to site conditions or regulations during construction. The use of a Building Contract coupled with a suitable qualified professional to administer the contract can minimise your exposure as the Employer and reduce problems to the contractor allowing for a smooth running construction process and a successfully completed project. As part of our Construction Packages we would be delighted to work through the project as your Contractor Administrator to help the project result in a successful outcome.
