Project & Contract Management

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

The identification of fire safety upgrading or enhancement, following a fire safety audit/ risk assessment of your premises, often leads to some work being required to meet the identified risks. The works may range across several areas of specialism and include mechanical, electrical and passive building works.

LWF are able to undertake on your behalf:

  • Co-ordination of all project design input.
  • Preparation of a project execution plan.
  • Assistance with the procurement and selection of contractors.
  • Definition of contractual relationships.
  • Quantity surveying services in association with contract tender and award.
  • Preparation and co-ordination of all pre and post tender documentation. Organisation and evaluation of contract tenders.
  • Site supervision of the project.
  • Contract valuations and administration.
  • Post contract services.

PROJECT COST PREPARATION

The design and specification of works normally has a cost implication therefore before works commence you need to know the risk, priority and cost of the recommendations before decisions can be made on implementation.

LWF are able to undertake on your behalf:

  • Preparation of first order and budget costing for the implementation of works, following the designs and specifications undertaken by LWF or other consultants.
  • Preparation of pre-tender budgets.
  • Preparation of a prioritised action plan.
