Project Management & Contract Administration

Why choose Andrews Eades for Project Management & Contract Administration?

Contract administration (commonly referred to as Project Management by clients) is the role of administering a construction contract between a client and their chosen contractor, for the duration of the project construction phase. Within this role there are many services which we would provide, including weekly site visits to check on progress, formal monthly site meetings, checking the contractor’s valuations and issuing certificates for payment, issuing contract instructions for variations to the specification, assessing claims for extension of time, and inspecting defects.

We have expert knowledge of the JCT contract suite and a high level of experience in administering those contracts across a vast range of projects. This service gives clients the piece of mind that their project will be run in a comprehensive and professional manner, affording them the security and reassurance that a building contract offers.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve picked out some answers to the most popular questions we get asked by clients and potential customers about our Architectural Services.

When do I need planning permission?2023-08-24T14:42:18+01:00

Planning consent depends upon the nature and size of extension, listed status, conservation areas etc.

We would be please to advise on the likely need for consent. Please contact us for more information.

Do I need permission?2023-10-05T13:52:12+01:00

Most proposed building work is subject to compliance with planning policy, however whether you must formally apply for planning consent is dependent on the nature of the work you intend to undertake and the type of property you own.

More minor extensions and alterations may be undertaken without the need to formally apply for planning consent if they meet Permitted Development criteria.

Andrews Eades will be able to advise you whether your project meets Permitted Development criteria, and if not, which type of planning application is required to apply for consent.

Do I need a building contract?2023-08-24T14:40:53+01:00

No, it is not a statutory requirement to have a contract for a building project. However, we recommend that a contract is put in place for larger or complex projects as it binds both client and contractor to a clear framework for how the project is run and provides mechanisms for resolving disputes.

What is Permitted Development?2023-08-24T11:11:13+01:00

Permitted Development rights are a national grant of planning consent which allow certain building works and changes of use to be carried out without having to make a planning application. Permitted Development rights are subject to conditions and limitations to control impacts and to protect local amenity.

Whilst Permitted Development removes the requirement to apply for formal planning consent Andrews Eades would still recommend that you apply for a Certificate of Lawful Development from the Local Authority, as this would confirm that your proposed works are legal in planning terms.
