P-D-P believes that in order to prepare an accurate summation of the build costs for the Client that we employ the services of a P-D-P appointed Quantity Surveyor on behalf of the client, to prepare a Project Estimate.
This would then be adjusted by P-D-P and the client to incorporate all other elements of the project including the installation of pools, landscaping, tennis courts, security etc. All these are calculated at base cost with no mark up thereby giving an accurate indication of the total financial commitment the Client will be undertaking. The Construction Project Management fee would be calculated on an agreed % of the total project estimate (excl VAT) and would then be fixed for the duration of the project.
This gives the client the confidence that any increases in the scope or value of work would not attract additional fees unless the project timeline was negatively affected.
P-D-P will provide and manage a budget and a forecast of costs and track all payments for the duration of the project. P-D-P will negotiate pricing with the contractors and suppliers on behalf of the Client and ensure that the client receives all the discounts and rebates normally reserved for major building companies, which can be significant.
P-D-P will also verify contractor claims and determine what and when to pay suppliers and contractors and when to hold back payments for incorrect, unfinished or poor quality work.
