Our initial approach would be to carry out a through on-site inspection with other members of the Design Team to establish the extent of the work to be repaired or replaced, taking site measurements where appropriate.
We would prepare a detailed estimate and cost plan using approximate quantities priced on the basis of typical rates we have received elsewhere on similar contracts, utilising material costs and specialist sub-contract quotes, having made adjustments as necessary to take into account local market conditions and geographical location.
Costs associated with essential repairs and priority of non-essential costs would be highlighted.
As the project develops, the cost plan can be easily adjusted and brought up to date as further information comes to light.
