Let us save you time, money and stress
How we operate
Pennington Phillips offers a range of off-the-shelf and full turnkey contract administration services – from design and planning right through to handover of your beautiful home.
We’ll represent your interests in your dealings with the contractor, saving you time, stress and money by working to keep your project in line with expectations, budgets and agreed timeframes.
We’ll also help preserve the integrity of your design and ensure full compliance with regulations, providing our architectural knowledge and experience whenever unexpected eventualities arise during construction.
What we do
Depending on the nature of your project, you can use our complete architecture package or pick and choose the individual services you need.
We’ll meet the main contractor to agree a budget and schedule, setting out a project document comprising a certificate for payment, periodic valuations and programme of formal site meetings. We’ll also make sure the contractor has all health and safety measures, insurances and statutory permits in place before work can proceed.
Regular site inspections
We’ll also check the contractor is working in accordance with building regulations, planning permission and all other statutory conditions.
Monthly progress reviews
Where necessary, we’ll also adapt the design process in response to changes on site, logging any unforeseen circumstances and reporting their impact on the project programme and budget.
Next you’ll be ready to move into your majestic home. So we’ll be on hand to ensure the handover runs smoothly, providing you with a full operations and maintenance manual and arranging tutorials for any complex systems such as heating, audio-visual and home integration.
Once we’ve issued a certificate of practical completion, you’re then covered by our Defect Liability Period, during which the contractor remains responsible for any defects that may arise within the property.
