Construction projects almost never run smoothly without unexpected issues arising.
Contract Administration is the final part of the traditional full architectural service, which allows the architect to impartially administer the building contract on your behalf.
We can provide this role for you. Our role through the building contract is to:
We can inspect the quality of the building work through the construction period in a fair and impartial way.
We can manage both contractual issues and construction issues that arise through the building process, such as:
We can deal with questions that may be outside your area of expertise, keep you informed and provide recommendations with clear explanations.
We can mediate between you and the builder on variations and other issues that may arise on site, reducing on-site friction and making sure that what is being asked by both parties is fair and reasonable.
The architect's role of contract administrator helps to protect your interests through the construction period and provide the outcome that you seek without the potential stress and anxiety of dealing direct with the builder.
