Refurbishment & Conversion Projects:

As Chartered Building Surveyors, this is one of our core services we provide. We have had a long involvement in this type of work, whether it be advising on the repair or complete refurbishment of listed buildings, fit out works to commercial offices, or the upgrade of industrial and retail properties.

Our input usually includes the following:

• Taking and interpreting the client's brief.

• If necessary and required, prepare a feasibility study in relation to the works/project, to determine whether they are feasible regarding the client's budget and timescales.

• The design and specification of the works, which includes advising on the best choice of building materials and components, and how they inter-relate with each other.

• Submissions to local authorities for consent i.e. Planning Permission, Building Regulation Approval and if required Listed Building Consent.

• The preparation of tender documentation and subsequently, tendering the works to the chosen building contractors.

• Provide to the client a tender analysis and cost appraisal of the returned tenders from the building contractors.

• Advise the client on contractual issues i.e. the correct and most appropriate building contract to use for the works/project, and if deemed necessary the use of collateral warranties.

• Contract Administration/project management of the works when on site, ensuring of standard/quality of workmanship in accordance with the specification, cost control in relation to the client's budget, and project overrun/timescale issues.
