The growing practice in the construction industry today is to appoint the Estate Surveyor and Valuer as Project Manager leaving the other consultants to concentrate more on their professional functions.
In the Firm’s capacity as Project Manager, we become the leader of the development team and co-ordinate the functions and activities of all other members of the team as well as the main contractors. Some of the functions of the Firm as Project Manager will include but are not limited to:
Site assembly, project feasibility and viability appraisal, programming, supervision, design appraisal, authorizing design changes, monitoring progress and cost, letting and management of the completed development.
Since the Firm also performs the role of property manager, (i.e. after the completion of the development when other members of the development team have left the scene), we have that unique experience obtained from managing properties to detect design features likely to cause management and maintenance problems in future and consequently are in a position to advise against these at the design stage if appointed as Project Manager.
We provide specialized advice on how to provide affordable housing, maintenance and repair of properties for industrial, commercial and residential users.
We also provide supervision and advice on new construction work and on the conversion, improvement, maintenance and repair of existing buildings as well as dealing with dilapidations, wall problems and arbitration in dispute on building matters.

This is usually part of the Estate Surveyors and Valuers function as project manager but requires further explanation here. It is prudent that before embarking on a property development project, an Estate Surveyor and Valuer should be commissioned to carry out a pre-investment study.
Such a study will determine what is appropriate for a particular site as distinct from determining whether the proposed line of investment is viable. With the Firm’s knowledge of the property market, we are in a position to give advice as to what development the market would accept for a particular site.
Having determined what is appropriate for a site, the Firm will prepare a proper feasibility and viability study after obtaining the inputs of other professionals to determine whether the scheme, as designed, is viable or not.
It is not unusual for such a scheme not to be undertaken or modified thereby saving the investor potential losses.
