It is a policy of our practice to undertake the post contract quantity surveying duties that we feel should be entrusted to the quantity surveyor and not passed on to the contractor. We will visit site regularly during the post contract period to take site measurements and ascertain the extent of any varied works. We would meet the contractor on site to prepare the monthly valuations and report to the Architect. Similarly, we would prepare the final account for agreement with the Contractor. We do not believe that these tasks should be entrusted to the contractor as an element of financial control will be lost. Their willingness to undertake duties that are properly ours must indicate that they perceive that a financial advantage can be obtained.
During the progress of the works on site we will provide guidance on the estimated final cost. These financial appraisals will be prepared at regular intervals as necessary and will indicate the effect of any variations issued and other possible changes or claims. Advice can be given for the cost effect of any variations that are being considered prior to instruction to the contractor.
Change control registers can be provided and maintained if required.
