Independent Chartered Surveyors
Working from our site in Copthorne, Crawley, Landrock Phillips provides expert project management and quantity surveying services. This includes instructing design teams, overseeing tendering processes, and carrying out high-level reviews of designs, budgets, and programmes. This work ensures the provision of added value through risk management, including benchmarking and the provision of key performance indicators (KPIs). We make certain that there is a clear understanding of your business strategy so that we can provide high-level advice at an early stage.
The key element of any project is the successful management of construction work to ensure compliance with contract documents. This includes compliance with the design specifications and the building contract itself. We rigorously enforce conformity with the specification and regularly inspect and approve works on site as they progress. We manage any change order system or contract instructions that are required in order to meet your variations and will ensure you are kept fully informed of the impact of any variations, prior to their implementation. We closely monitor the programme of works and advise you at an early stage of anything which may affect the contract completion date.
Linked closely with our contract administration role, we prepare valuations, issue certificates for completed works for stage payments, negotiate a final account, and ultimately issue the final certificate. Pre-contract, we also advise on the proposed costs of any works by the preparation of feasibility studies and budget cost estimates.
Landrock Phillips provides advice on the most appropriate methods of procuring construction works, from simply identifying the correct form of contract to be used, to more innovative methods of fast-track procurement, such 2-stage tendering. Landrock Phillips also advises on the tailoring of contract forms to meet your specific requirements.
Project Monitoring and Co-ordination
Landrock Phillips provides project monitoring services should you require regular updates on progress, the conformity to specification of a project, and where the design and contract administration team have been appointed by others. This is of particular interest to funding institutions and future lessees of the building in question. We can also provide valuation information for cost monitoring and draw-down purposes.
Employer's Agent Services
The use of the design and build method of construction is becoming more and more popular. Design and Build contracts afford clients certain advantages over traditional contracting methods in certain situations. When the Design and Build format is adopted, the client will be very exposed in their professional representation within the
contract and as a result it is advisable that the client appoints a professional advisor to act as his Employer’s Agent. Landrock Phillips Ltd have a great deal of experience in acting as Employer’s Agent in commercial, healthcare and the education fields
Landrock Philips is happy to act as the Principal Designer under the CDM Regulations 2015. We are also able to provide CDM advisor services to architects and other consultants. Our director is a member of the Association of Project Safety, a recognised regulatory body in this field. For further information visit: https://www.aps.org.uk/.
