Site Inspection & Contractor Administrator Duties
We offer a site inspection / contract administrator service, which ensures your building, is being constructed by the Builder/Main Contractor to current standards or an agreed design.
Many people want the professional assurance that comes from using a registered Architect to look after your building throughout its construction stages.
Our involvement can be scaled to meet the requirements of the contract, or type of project. We can act as both contract administrator on behalf of the client under a traditional contract scenario, or act as a client presence onsite with the ability to respond to queries or address any problems that may occur during the construction stages.
This site inspection service has the potential to reduce the responsibility and liability of the client during the day to day running of the project, allowing them to focus on the end product with the reassurance that the building is being inspected for compliance and checked against the design drawings for accuracy.
This site inspection role can be scaled from a permanent site presence or at any other frequency to meet the needs of your project.
It’s worth noting that the longer between visits the greater the possibility of potential problems arising without the client’s knowledge. As a rule, we are regularly appointed to visit site to coincide with the Building control officers visits. This frequency will ensure any deficiencies of the contractor / builder are addressed promptly, and the client is aware of any developments or required remedial works.
If you are unsure of the frequency between visits that best suits your project, we also offer an `hourly charge rate`. This type of service is tailored more towards dealing with a specific problem that you may wish to seek professional guidance or advice to resolve.
