Co-ordination with Other Consultants
You will probably need input from a specialist consultant such as a Structural Engineer or Building Regulations consultant for SAP calculations, or for non-residential project a CDM Co-ordinator to undertake the duties of set out by the HSE (See PDF here and http://www.hse.gov.uk/construction/areyou/client.htm)
I will help you source these and co-ordinate as required.
Detail level drawings
We then can produce a full set of drawings for a builder to price, including details of all elements.
Building Regulations Application
If required weI can undertake a Full Plans or Building Notice Application for the project.
Schedule of works
As with the drawings, schedules can help you compare builders prices in more detail and can be used either on their own or with drawings to provide you with the basis for tendering.
Tender Package / Contract Agreement
If you would prefer I can tender the Drawings and Schedules on your behalf, review the tenders coming in and provide a detailed report on the prices received. 4.2 – Cost Reduction / Scheme Amendment after tender stage.
Quite frequently once tenders are received the costs and scheme is reviewed and amended before signing the Building Contracts.
I would always recommend a standard building contract like:
JCT Minor Works contracts ( http://www.jctltd.co.uk/category/minor-works-building )
FMB Contracts ( http://www.fmb.org.uk/find-a-builder/free-contracts/ )
I find that most clients like to choose these elements themselves from local specialists or showrooms.
If you require detailed lighting schemes, kitchen layouts, bathroom design and selection of materials and equipment I can provide you with a quotation for me to do these, alternatively you may wish to involve an interior designer or obtain specialist quotes for these items yourself
Specialists may include Lighting Designers – http://www.lightmaster-direct.co.uk/
