Plans, Builder and Construction Matters

Blacksurv can provide full or partial assistance with regard ongoing building/ Maintenance issues or proposed matters with regard to your Property.
1. Drawings for Planning or Otherwise
We can site measure and supply both full planning drawings or construction details. All are formed via CAD (Computer Aided Design) and are therefore kept on file for any future amendments required. We can take you through the planning process if required.

2. Building Regulation
Most proposed works will require compliance to the current building regulation, we can guide you through this process to full completion ensuring all the works carried out have been carried out lawfully.

3. Quantity Surveying/ Project Supervision – Laurence Black BSc MSc MRICS CSRT in his earlier long career acted as Quantity Surveyor/ Site Manager for some of the main Contractors (Try Build now Galliford Try, Loweth of London, Wates (largest privately owned construction co in UK) & Laing. We can form full works specification including Schedules of Works/ Bills of Quantities. These need to be easily readable and detailed enough for Contractors to understand and price accordingly without too much risk to over price by not enough detail, thus lowering project costs. We can arrange the Contractual Documents and oversee the project both in terms of supervision on site and cost control to ensure standards and keep costs to a minimum.

4. Contractor Disputes – We can act for either Builder or Client or act independently with resolving a dispute on site, whether technical, practical or contractual.

5. General Building Issues – We can visit your property and help to determine a cause of a specific Building defect, provide a fully explanatory report and make detailed recommendations for remedial works with estimated costs.
