Building contract administration and consultancy

Sillence Hurn provide contract administration, management and consultancy for commercial and domestic building projects in the Southern Counties and London.

From preparation of contract documentation through to ongoing on-site monitoring of build and completion, Sillence Hurn will be there to ensure your project is delivered successfully.

Contract Administration

Such is the nature of construction work with its complexities, liabilities and cost exposure, it is vital that the client is suitably assisted and protected through the course of a project.

The role of the Contract Administrator is to manage a suitable binding contract between client and contractor. Their appointment at the outset of a project is designed to ensure the smooth and efficient running of the works until successful completion. To achieve this, the CA will invariably prepare the works specification, procure the most suitable contract type, inspect the works at regular intervals, chair meetings with the contractor, instruct the contractor, agree variations and consider delays along with authorising payments and ultimately approving the overall cost of the works.

Contract administration is often offered alongside quantity surveying, project management and monitoring surveying to ensure that one practice is ultimately responsible for the successful oversight and management of a build.
