Accurate cost information is vital to the success of any construction project

Gateley Vinden will advise you on costs throughout the duration of the project process. This includes reviewing alternative design and specification solutions. This process will begin with the very first sketch designs and conclude with the final issue of construction drawings.

Procurement Arrangements

There are many methods of procuring construction works.

We will help you determine the order of your project priorities.

Cost, programme, quality, design, type of building contract and all other relevant issues will be considered before we recommend the most appropriate method of procurement to suit your requirements.

Client Protection Measures

The safeguarding of our clients’ interests is of paramount importance to Gateley Vinden.

Insurance, bonds, warranty arrangements, liquidated damages, sectional completion requirements, performance specified work and project preliminaries are just a few of the measures we can draft and apply on your behalf, in order to protect your specific project interests.

Contractual Arrangements

Selection of the appropriate form of contract is vital to the success of any project.

Project size, design responsibility, complexity, competitive tendering or partnering, programme and budget constraints are all issues which should be considered before a particular contractual arrangement is adopted.

We are able to provide an independent service to manage and administer both design and build and traditional construction contracts.

We will select, amend and draft the most appropriate form of contract to suit your specific needs.

Contractor Appointments

Selecting Contractors to undertake the construction of your project is not a straightforward task.

Price may not be the most important issue. Partnership arrangements, reputation for reliability and quality are other important considerations.

We will help you to determine the criteria and Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) that are important to your particular project. We will create a list of suitable Contractors with you and the project team, review and interview them, select a tender list and finally appoint the Contractor most suited to satisfy your specific needs.

Post Contract Cost Control/Feedback on KPIs

By the time a Contractor has been appointed to deliver your project, significant financial investment will already have been committed on your behalf.

This is not the time to allow your project to run out of financial control.

We will monitor the financial aspects and KPI's for the project on your behalf. We will report to you on a regular basis updating costs and cash flow, enabling you to control the project expenditure.

I would recommend Gateley Vinden to any organisation or individual looking for advice or assistance
