Snag lists: We are able to prepare snag lists for residential

Building surveys and measured surveys: We can provide
a full range of surveys from acquisition to advising on condition, defects
and their remedies. Where necessary we will advise on the need for specialist
investigations. We can also provide disability access audits and measured
surveys of buildings.
Maintenance Strategies: We can assess a property’s
condition, its future maintenance liability and advise on strategies
to improve operations and cost effectiveness.
Building pathology advice: We can accurately diagnose
building defects and failures using our knowledge and understanding
of materials, design and construction technology.
Specification and Administration of Building Works: Following assessment
of a building we can specify, implement and administer a range of building
works including the maintenance, repair, refurbishment and alteration
of existing structures. Where applicable we can make application for
statutory consents and provide Certificates of Compliance with building
regulations and make applications for Fire Safety Certificates.
Conservation: We can offer a specific expertise in
the survey, impact assessment and management of historic buildings and
protected structures ensuring that works to such buildings are organised
in a sensitive and appropriate manner. In addition we can, on behalf
of our client, apply for grant funding and provide regular project reports
for grant funders.
Project monitoring: We can protect the interests of
third parties in development projects – principally investment
funds, banks, purchasers and tenants – by monitoring throughout
the development and reporting on progress and quality.
Dilapidations Advice: We can advise both landlord and
tenants on their leasehold liabilities and negotiate a financial settlement
on their behalf at lease expiry. We can also provide Schedules of Condition
prior to commencement of a lease or before construction/ development

Project Management: We can provide project management
services from the pre-contract phase through to completion. Our services
can include: development of the brief; selection of other consultants
and contractors; management of the design team; and project co-ordination.
Insurance assessments and claims: We can provide insurance
reinstatement assessments and, in the event of a claim, liaise with
the insurer and loss adjuster and organise repair works.
Mediation: Using an Accredited Mediator we can provide
mediation services in property and construction related disputes. Mediation
is a voluntary and confidential process in which those involved in the
dispute are encouraged to develop their own solutions. It can therefore
be a cost effective and efficient alternative to litigation. The mediator
would be employed jointly by both parties and usually instructed by
the legal representatives.
