Experience Level: Intermediate
I am an ex-architect in Monmouth, and have a job involving the comprehensive refurb of a four bedroom semi detached cottage and the construction of a single storey modern extension and garage. It should have an interesting 'Grand Designs' sort of result and will be built for maximum energy efficiency with a ground source heat pump.
I am progressing 1:50 working plans, sections and elevations, and have the basic planning consent drawings.
I would like the support of a good QS to take on as much of the written documentation as possible, working with me from drawings, emails and phone conversations. Ideally this would produce a) an initial broad brush cost estimate for client consideration, b) a fairly detailed schedule of works, ideally in excel format, and c) as b but costed in detail.
We would then either negotiate with a builder on the basis of your pricing; or would go out to tender. Ideally we would start on site on Mar 30th, which means finalising docs in next 3 weeks or so.
I have some caution over taking this route and over PPH, as have tried to do so before, but have found that one result was full of mistakes and ommissions, and others over-estimated costs so were of little practical value.
But your reviews and CV are impressive so I am hoping for better luck this time !
I dont know if you agree, but have found that small contractors can be frightened off by too much information, while too little does not help clarity!
I would be happy to send initial work- in-progress documents, if you are interested.
I am not sure if you would be doing this as a freelancer, or within the firm you mention, Abacus?
I look forward to hearing from you with interest.
Patrick Thomas.
