The Specification and Administration of Building Works
Our expert Building Surveyors offer advice when building repairs, maintenance, alterations or conversion works are necessary. We often advise property owners and managers on the timing and budgeting of cyclical major works and Section 20 consultation procedures required for residential blocks under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985.
Our extensive experience includes many styles of both residential and commercial properties, from period Grade I historic buildings, mansion blocks and modern apartment buildings, commercial offices, shops, restaurants and factory units on business parks.
Whether working directly with property owners, lessees, or property managers, we aim to provide everything you need for the smooth management of your building project. We can assist with the entire project from the provision of initial advice, inspections, the analysis of the property and any leases, the preparation of the detailed specifications, through to the tendering and contract administration of the actual works.
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015
CDM Regulations apply to most larger-scale building work in compliance with legislation, governing the health and safety requirements of a project. Most building projects require the appointment of certain key health and safety professionals to influence the management of the building works.
We regularly act as ‘Principal Designer’ for clients in accordance with the 2015 Regulations.
