We provide a full range of contract management services to contractors and sub-contractors including reviewing and drafting of contract correspondence with a view to protecting your interests and entitlements through submitting notices of contractual claims in due time and advising on the keeping of necessary records and preservation of evidence in support of such contractual claims.

 

Contract Preparation and Management

We can prepare contract documents for developers, building owners etc. and for a wide variety of construction projects including residential, commercial buildings, building renovation works, building alteration and additional works etc.

The early identification of claim issues, timely submission of notices and detailed particulars of claims and the keeping of contemporaneous records to support claims are essential to the early and successful conclusion of claims.

We provide a full range of contract management services to contractors and sub-contractors including reviewing and drafting of contract correspondence with a view to protecting your interests and entitlements through submitting notices of contractual claims in due time and advising on the keeping of necessary records and preservation of evidence in support of such contractual claims.

On the sub-contracting side, we can offer advice on sub-contract procurement strategy and drafting of sub-contract agreements and documents to suit your different needs.

 

Contract Review

With the ever-demanding requirements of construction clients on quality, safety, environment and time, and the client bias strategy in risk allocation in the drafting of modern forms of contracts, the early identification of risks associated with these requirements and sophisticated contract forms at the early stage of a construction project is more and more crucial to contractors and sub-contractors.

With the above needs in mind, our services will concentrate on reviewing and analyzing contract documents for contractors and sub-contractors, identifying risks associated with different projects and contract forms and suggesting possible ways that such risks can be avoided, reduced or transferred, and advising on other aspects that need to be considered in the tendering of projects such as programmes, warranties and bonds etc. and to ensure that your chances of successfully bidding and completing a project are increased. In addition, we can tailor-make contract conditions, joint venture agreements, pre-bid agreements and supplementary agreements to suit your particular needs.

 

Commercial Management

Construction as a business is all about making profit, which essentially comprises maximizing your revenue and/or minimizing your cost.

In this regard, our services include identification of opportunities in the construction contracts to maximize your revenue as your project progresses, as well as the traditional services such as

– preparation of builder’s bills of quantities,

– estimating and tendering,

– tender evaluation,

– measurements to suit different needs,

– payment applications,

– valuation of variations and

– final account preparation and settlement etc.

In addition, we can offer advice on and assist you to build up your own cost management systems, prepare project cost budgets, cost-value reconciliation reports, and highlight areas where there may be over-spending and identify and resolve problems that may arise as the project progresses.

 

Insurance

On the insurance side, which is now inevitable in construction contracts, we can advise on the procurement of different kinds of insurances that are required by law or under contract and advise on preparation and settlement of insurance claims.

 

Sub-Contract Management

In respect of sub-contract management, we can advise on the use of the most appropriate form of sub-contract(s), draft suitable sub-contract and sub-contract clauses and administer the sub-contracts for you.

 

Final Account Settlement

Final account settlement can be tedious, resources- and time-consuming. With this in mind, we offer value-for-money services in this regard through our staff who are experienced in the preparation and negotiation of final accounts and can act on your behalf to prepare, present to and negotiate with your employer’s consultants and to achieve the best settlement of your final accounts within a reasonable timescale.
