The Tender drawings we create are far more detailed than Planning drawings, they are dimensioned throughout and include an architectural specification. We liaise with the client on what standard of building they are looking for. We advise on the requirements of the Building Regulations and how these requirements can be adhered to. Tender drawings provide a contractor with the detail required to price the project and these drawings can indeed be used to build the project. They show all materials required in the building and set out the constraints the builder must adhere to both from a regulatory, and cost perspective, to complete the project.
We vet potential contractor’s competency and put the project to tender. We check the contractors’ insurances, appoint the contractor.
We Administration the contract and this involves outlining the terms of the contract to the builder prior to commencement of the works and making sure the contractor has included for everything outlined in the tender drawings. We look at the programme for the project as well as ensuring the contractor has sufficient resources to complete the project on time and to a satisfactory standard.
