PWH has extensive experience and knowledge, with the broad skills of Chartered Quantity and Building Surveyors, of the specification and procurement of all types of contract. The Practice has the added expertise of having a Conservation Building Surveyor who can provide added weight and depth to conservation and restoration projects.
The preparation of project and site specific detailed conservation specifications is able to be produced for the benefit of you, the Client. The specifications can confirm exactly how the restoration and conservation work will be carried out on the project. This can include the sequence of events that need to occur, the programming of the works to suit your specific requirements and the tolerances and performance requirements of the materials to be used on site. The specification can include the exact details that you require for the materials and mixes to be used and this could include the quarry that a particular sand has to be sourced from. This is all to aid the benefit, quality and authenticity of the restoration work to match the original materials.
The production of a measured schedule of works can be included which will quantify the exact extent of work. This document, in association with the detailed specification, will help ensure cost certainty of the project which benefits the Clients with budgetary controls. Tenders will be issued to a maximum of six carefully selected contractors who are deemed suitable to undertake the specific project. A full tender report will be produced on receipt of the tenders, this will include checking the quality of the tender and the deliverability of the rates stated.
The tender report will recommend to you the preferred contractor and the contract details. These details can be included in the formal contract documents that we will produce for the project for the safety and protection of you as our Client.
