Your Peace of Mind…
Home Design Studios offer a Contract Administration package to help make building an extension or new home a worry free experience that you can enjoy seeing take shape.
This service incorporates the compilation of a tender pack and issue of a tender invitation to building contractors of your choice or recommended by us if you prefer (or both). We will specify all of the requirements that contractors must meet in order to qualify for inclusion on the tender list. This will include health and safety, insurance liabilities, and other documentation pertinent to the construction sector and your project.
We will evaluate tender submissions and apply leveling as necessary so that you can easily assess which tenders offer best value.
We will appoint your chosen building contractor (and specialist sub-contractors where applicable) and implement a JCT contract for your protection and peace of mind.
Once construction work is underway we will also assess the contractors invoice valuations on your behalf to ensure that they represent earned value and are commensurate with the work done. We will authorise payment certificates on your behalf so that you never need to enter into discussions regarding invoiced sums with your appointed contractors. We will also negotiate the cost for any agreed additional works and raise an associated contract variation order.
This package helps to protect your interests and ensure that you are not paying your appointed contractor for work that has not been completed.
