Quantity Surveying

We assist in the preparation of the development brief, providing financial limits and advice.

We carry out financial studies to determine the financial feasibility of the Client’s requirements, and we review alternatives in procurement, material selection and procedures to ensure best value for the Client.

We gather together and co-ordinate all relevant information to allow for the preparation of tender documentation appropriate for the selected procurement route.

We issue and analyse all tender offers, appraising and advising the Client before preparing contracts and ancillary documentation.

Nixon is responsible for cost controlling and accurate financial reporting, advising the client of the financial implications of subsequent changes to the scope of works. We also inspect, check and agree the Contractor’s Final Account.

Project Management

Nixon provides construction advice and solutions to meet the client’s brief.

We advise and co-ordinate on the requirement for other consultants and service providers to reflect the needs of the client and the project works. We then investigate and advise the client on appropriate methods of contracting and selection of the right contractor for the works.

We establish and monitor programming of the works to achieve the client’s objectives, monitoring and controlling the progress of the works throughout the duration of the project from inception to completion.

Construction Design & Management Principal Designer

Offered to clients in support of other duties or as a stand alone appointment, our role is to advise and assist the client on undertaking the measures the client must take to comply with the CDM Regulations during the project.

Nixon ascertain the scope for the proposed works, including the intended use, projected timescale, preferred procurement method and financial limits. We assess these criteria and advise on the health and safety implications arising. We research the site and the surrounding lands, providing to prospective contracting companies information on health and safety of persons engaged in construction, maintenance, cleaning and demolition.

We ensure that risks have been recognised and minimised in the principal contractor’s construction phase plan.

We ensure that the original project brief is not compromised when design changes are proposed.

Importantly we assess and advise on the competence of other consultants’ and contracting companies’ ability to comply with their obligations under the CDM Regulations and as to the adequacy of the resources allocated for this purpose.

At the end of the project we will review and explain the health and safety files with the client to ensure that the building can be operated safely.
