At Edward Jackson we are able to offer clients a full Design and Contract Administration Service for the residential and commercial sector. This might be for new build schemes or refurbishment of existing buildings in which Chartered Building Surveyors specialise.

We are always conscious of maximising the potential of a property, backed up with expert valuation advice, with client liaison at all times.

The process involves:

  • A detailed site survey of an existing building
  • Preparation of sketch scheme proposals
  • Liaison with clients to achieve their aims, to include on-going Planning and Building Regulation advice
  • Preparation of full working drawings, with associated contract documentation that might include a specification,
  • Structural calculations and a Building Contract
  • Planning advice, preparation of applications to obtain Planning & Building Regulation Approval
  • Selecting reputable Contractors, collating references and obtaining several alternative Tenders to ensure the most competitive price is achieved
  • Contract administration through to Final Inspection and Certification

Contract Administration is a most important part of the design and build process. It ensures that the client obtains what they require, with strict  quality and financial controls. The Contract Administrator also provides the liaison between the client and the builder, resolving any difficulties  throughout the Contract period and provides financial accounts statements.
