Shirin Alavi Architects can manage the construction stage of a building project. We make regular inspections of the work on-site, liaise with contractor and assist with site queries. Any post-tender changes to the contracted project are recorded and we issue to the contractor any requisite sets of drawings, schedules and other documents. We certify stage payments for work carried out or completed, advise on final cost, make final inspections and advise on resolution of defects. On completion, we agree the final account and issue a final certificate. At handover, we determine information required for commissioning, training and maintenance. Following completion we carry out a post-occupancy evaluation, review project performance, prepare ‘as-constructed’ information, showing the building and its services and respond to client feedback.
