The Quantity Surveyor plays a pivotal role in the building construction process and ideally should be involved at the earliest planning stage of a project in order that budgets can be drawn up that are a fair reflection of the intended project. MMA prepare early budget estimates and as design development cost checks are carried out. potential cost overruns reported on and appropriate advice given.
Documentation is prepared for tender and later contract purposes and the procurement process reported on. We prepare interim valuations for work done on site. Each valuation is accompanied by a financial status report. The final costs of the project are negotiated with the Contractor. All projects are overseen by the Directors who exercise quality control.
An important aspect of our work is contract advice to both Contractors and Employers. Such advice may be with regard to small matters of disputed cost, to very large matters where Contractor’s claims need to be scrutinised for legal standing and financial resolution.
