Sunday 1st October 2023

At Tayross Associates, we take pride in our expertise in contract administration for building projects. In this blog post, we will share our experience as contract administrators for a recent project in Pinner, where a house suffered severe damage due to a water leak in the attic. Tayross Associates is the go-to choice for such matters as the following:

1. Assessing the Damage and Agreeing on the Claim:
Upon visiting the site, our team conducted a thorough damage report, meticulously documenting the extent of the destruction. We then collaborated with the loss adjuster to agree on the claim, ensuring that the client would receive the correct costs to carry out the works.

2. Creating a Comprehensive Schedule of Works:
With the costs confirmed, we proceeded to develop a detailed schedule of works. This document outlined the necessary repairs and renovations, ensuring all aspects of the reconstruction were accounted for. Our expertise in contract administration played a crucial role in accurately determining the scope of work and setting realistic timelines.

3. Tendering the Works to Building Contractors:
To ensure competitive pricing and quality workmanship, we sent the schedule of works out for tender to multiple building contractors. Our experience in evaluating tenders allowed us to select the most suitable contractor, considering factors such as cost,programme, expertise, and availability.

4. Maintaining Cash Flow and Program:
With the selected contractor onboard, we focused on maintaining cash flow and adhering to the project program. We prepared a schedule of payments with the insurance company, ensuring that funds were allocated efficiently to support the construction process. This enabled the builders to stay on track and complete the project within the agreed-upon timeframe.
