Adjudication Consultancy on a 'Coefficiency' basis:

The 'BIF Act' coupled with the current ‘Innovation Disruption’ via ‘Real Time Reporting’ technological changes to the construction & infrastructure industry will require proactive coefficient ‘Turnaround and Restructuring’ for all contractors, suppliers, consultants, builders, property owners and developers to adapt, survive and expand.

Innovation Disruption is already happening:– being driven by its human element of decision making, always bound by a valid contract claim and subject to current law.

The solution in meeting the 'BIF Act' (with new adjudication procedures commenced on 17 December 2018), coupled with Innovation Disruption involves creating Pragmatic Proactive Solutions as a value adding business investment to improve competitiveness and profitability.

 

The "3 measures one cut" maxim learnt as an onsite contractor is to minimise risk proactively.  Therefore, existing hard copy & electronic reporting formats for supporting payment or set-off claims need to be analysed in terms of efficiency to prevent losses occurring, i.e. "a good tradesperson never blames their tools unless they're redundant, outdated or uncompetitive and need replacing".

 

Solutions are created from Contractor / Supplier Operations Risk Reviews (adaptable for all clients) which is where a claim commences before the workface, followed by all other Quantity Surveyor Services where needed.

Reinforcement of existing reporting formats via Real Time Reporting email "Client Templates" to accurately & efficiently collect, protect and maximise returns to enable properly supported current & future unpaid valid payment or set-off claims.  

 

Undertake due diligence of alternate cost effective document management, onscreen take-off and estimating software in the market, suitable for particular business needs.

 

Pre & Post Contract Risk SWOT Analysis offers an outsourced In-House quantity surveyor working with the client daily identifying strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats throughout client business operations through to recoverable payment.  An approach a client's costly legal consultant neither has the contractor experience, qualifications or skills to provide.

These solutions go well beyond the typical reaction of engaging professional or legal consultant's advice to claw back uncertain unpaid claims at an exorbitant cost, compared with being proactive with client payment or set-off claim at a fraction of the cost, whilst improving efficiencies In-House.

Existing unpaid valid payment or set-off claims are Coefficiently reviewed for strategic options for probable costs & time for debt recovery, and then provide relevant claim preparation support from Debt Recovery Negotiation, Adjudication Amounts or Subcontractors Charges through to Litigation Support.
