Timing of Works:

Many building works relate to external maintenance and repair.  Building owners often consider starting the process in the Spring and Summer, unaware that the inspection, specification and tender process is lengthy.  Most good building contractors are not available at short notice and second tier ones are often appointed at short notice and produce a rushed, second tier job.  This may cause problems for the contractor, the building owner and the surveyor.  Our advice is to commence the planning process six to twelve months prior to the required start date, which should be programmed for the Spring or early Summer.
