Building Consultancy from Boultons Chartered Surveyors

Our Building Consultancy services include:

Design and Management of Building Works

From the inception of a project we liaise with the client to determine the requirements, inspect the site and develop a brief. This can include advice upon:

  • Cost, timetable and legal approvals required to ensure that quality, time and cost requirements are met.
  • The selection of other consultants, such as designers and engineers.
  • The condition of an existing building.

Having decided to proceed with a project, then we can:

  • Prepare design sketches and drawings.
  • Advise on project costs and timetable.
  • Prepare specifications of work and contract documents.
  • Submit local authority applications.
  • Advise on legislative issues.
  • Suggest procurement routes, appropriate forms of contract and advise on tender lists.
  • Obtain prices for the work.

Once the project has started on site, we will administer the contract to ensure that the project is delivered on time, on cost and to the required quality.

Our experience in this field includes barn conversions, repairs to commercial properties and office and shop fit outs with projects ranging between £10,000- £500,000 in value.

Project Management of building works from Boultons

Protecting your interests in development and leasing

Development Monitoring

We act on behalf of a number of investment funds and banks to appraise the work, contractual set up and statutory compliance before monitoring its progress and authorising payments.

Having also assisted banks on a number of schemes in receivership and administration then we are well aware of the issues which may arise and how to protect a funders interest.


Schedules of Condition

We prepare detailed schedules of condition to be appended to a lease which protect against repairing covenants both during the lease term and expiry. Our schedules of condition have a narrative section at the front and referenced photographs at the rear to ensure the properties are recorded to a suitable level of detail.
