of any project, whatever the size. We will assess what you are aiming for and provide
you with professional advice on the best possible and practical solutions to achieve
your goal, so as to avoid falling into costly and time consuming mistakes, and help
you to make the right decisions for you and your investment.
Expert guidance and consultancy to achieve planning consent
Applying for planning and securing the permission can often be fraught with issues,
and could leave you feeling confused and not knowing where to turn, especially,
when dealing with some of the stringent planning regulations. We will offer you our
expertise, knowledge, and guidance that are needed to get the upfront design correct,
and provide you with a realistic assessment of the requirements expected to overcome
the complexities and hurdles of the planning system.
Managing tendering stage and overseeing the right project team
We have worked closely with trusted trade associates from architects and structural
engineers to suppliers and contractors for many years, and know their respective
track records and proven abilities means that we can be confident they will meet
both our and your expectations. Our drive and approach is focused in obtaining the
best value for you, combining our experience with expertise from all of our platforms
and we will put together the right team for you and your project.
Ascertaining budgets, negotiating with suppliers and managing cash flow
Establishing your build cost as early as possible is absolutely essential in helping
you evaluate the feasibility of your project, so we will begin with estimates by
meeting contractors on-site to facilitate quotes, sourcing and advising on acquisition
of materials, to ensure you get the best quality at the best price. We fully understand
that cash flow is a fundamental part of managing your project, and can have a
considerable impact on the schedule of works.
Coordinating work schedules, monitoring progress and regular reporting
We will maintain comprehensive and personalised support through every stage of
the building process and will oversee the work of all the professionals involved, to
make sure that materials are delivered on time to enable the relevant contractors to
be on site when needed to complete their part of the build. We will be your single
point of contact and will hold regular consultations and report to you throughout with
updates on progress of all aspects of the project.
Quality control, overseeing payments and delivering the final project
We are aware that you may wish to improve things along the way that differ from
the initial plans, as often those who have not opted for a project manager find that
alterations can result in them being forced to undo much of the work and start again.
By choosing Cross & Prior we will ensure your project is managed every stage of the
way, and assure all works stringently adhere to current building regulations, which
will help you reduce the risks and lead to a significant savings in project costs.
