Providing dispute support and project management for Contractors and Sub-Contractors for over 20 years
It is not always possible for the parties to reach agreement in a project. The contract usually makes provision for this and should set out the means by which differences are to be resolved. If not, the law imposes other remedies.
It doesn't always work out to plan. Construction can present high risks, and regimes adopted in the industry can defer receipt of payment. Cash flow is paramount, but businesses can be overtaken by events, and costs can quickly exceed revenue.
Key elements to a firm's ability to deliver an effective service are the management systems it uses and its staff - never more so than in the construction industry because most projects are unique. Let us help you implement systems that help your business thrive.
Contracting in the construction industry is a difficult and risky business where the financial stakes are often high. Despite recent construction industry moves towards partnering and open book policies, the risks still exist. Standard forms of contract are becoming more complex; project design risk is transferred to the contractor; changes vary the work and sub-contractors try to take advantage.
As a sub-contractor in the construction industry, you have to work hard to protect your business. That’s where we help, with experience of supporting sub-contractors large and small with everything from contract vetting to retention fund management. We also provide general quantity surveying services to sub-contractors as and when needed.
