New Build Detached dwelling, 13000 sq.ft Alderley Edge
Private Client Confidential
Derek Gough Associates Ltd., provided initial budget advice on this luxury residential project for a private client. Once the budget was agreed we advised the client on the various procurement routes that were available. After assessing the client’s specific requirements we were able to agree that a ‘cost plus fixed margin’ agreement would suit their requirements. We were then able to negotiate with selected contractor and set the budget for the works.
We the prepared and placed the contract documents for the project, at this point the client requested that we also act as contract administrator for the duration of the project
During the post contract phase of the works we provided a monthly valuation which involved allocation of hundreds of supplier and sub contractor invoices against the specific budget elements. Then, with this information, collated reports on the actual expenditure verses the budget, therefore enabling us to manage the costs during this construction phase.
In addition we were responsible for chairing monthly site meetings and providing the contract administration as required.
I have used the services of Derek Gough Associates for numerous jobs and tenders over many years . They are always very professional noligable and always meet deadlines .I have no hesitation in recommending them.
