Contract Administration

The contract administrator is the individual responsible for administering the construction contract. We generally like to fulfil this roles ourselves, so that we can work seamlessly on the project and undertake the work on your behalf, without you having to worry.

Contract administrators are appointed by you and usually act as your agent. When certifying or giving an assessment or decision, the administrator has to act honestly and reasonably with all their decisions.

The contract administrator's role will generally include:

  • Inviting and processing tenders.
  • Preparing contract documents for execution.
  • Administrating change control procedures.
  • Seeking instructions from the client in relation to the contract.
  • Issuing instructions such as variations, or relating to prime cost sums or making good defects.
  • Considering claims.
  • Chairing construction progress meetings.
  • Preparing and issuing construction progress reports.
  • Co-ordinating and instructing site inspectors.
  • Agreeing commissioning and testing procedures.
  • Agreeing defects reporting procedures.
  • Ensuring that project documentation is issued to the client.
  • Issuing certificates of practical completion and interim certificates.
  • Collating and issuing schedules of defects.
  • Issuing the certificate of making good defects.
  • Issuing the final certificate.

When we act as your contract administrator, it means that you can trust our expertise in all aspects of architecture, design and construction. We oversee the entire process, reporting to you as and where required, so that you can focus on other important duties, safe in the knowledge that everything is being taken care of.
