Project Management

Our team of experts have extensive experience of Project Management on various commercial building projects under JCT and NEC contracts as Contract Administrators, Clerk or Works or in a full Project Management role.  We work collaboratively with the client to deliver a tailored solution on time and on budget irrespective of the size and scope of the work.

Development Monitoring

Working on behalf of lenders, owners and end users of properties we identify issues and provide solutions by means of development appraisals.  Our experience in project managing diverse construction projects has provided us with the skills to identify and address potential issues including specification, compliance, quality, time and cost which ensures costs are mitigated prior to them becoming a problem.

Schedules of Condition

The purpose of these are to accurately record the condition of a property both internally and externally at a certain point in time, typically before entering into a lease. Typically, they will be requested by an ingoing tenant rather than a landlord. For the tenant, this will protect them against the need to undertake repairs on lease expiry to a building that was already in a poor condition at the commencement of the term.


We work diligently on behalf of our clients in serving a schedule of dilapidations in good time and expediting the negotiations so that space can be re-let promptly.

Re-instatement Cost Assessment (RCA)

Accuracy is essential to ensure that the property has adequate insurance cover.  In order to maintain cover, it is recommended that this process be revisited every three years in order to avoid costly disputes. We offer an attractive fee proposal for Re-instatement Cost Assessment (RCA) that we feel is well worth the peace of mind.
