Project Management / Contract Administration

The management of projects from inception to completion, including the provision of advice on:-

  • The appointment of architects, engineers and other professional consultants.
  • Procurement methods.
  • Design requirements and compliance with the Building Regulations, Town and Country Planning legislation, the DDA and other relevant legislation.
  • Party Wall matters and other boundary/adjacent property issues.
  • The selection of suitable contractors.
  • The appropriate form of contract.
  • Programme.
  • Project strategy.
  • Risk mapping.

The role of Contract Administrator includes certain of the above activities, but focuses simply on the running of a project where a design team already exists. An important part of both the Project Management and Contract Administration services offered by Sutherland Consulting is the preparation of appropriate formal contract documentation.
