Our competence, and character are at your disposal

Our typical involvement can be summarized into four main areas:

  • Project Management.
  • Quantity Surveying and Cost Engineering.
  • Contract Administration.
  • Environmental Impact Assessment and Auditing

We will Support you throughout the Entire Project, from Conception to Final Completion.

This support will be through:

  • Project management by assuming full responsibility for a management of a project from inception, implementation to commissioning, including advice given to a client for appointment of other consultants and service providers.
  • Package deals by providing full services that include preparation of brief, specifications and priced bills of quantities, negotiation of contract amount, preparing interim valuations and checking and agreeing final accounts
  • Consortia services by arranging a project-specific team of consultants to provide complete procure, design and supervision services, or, with a contractor to provide a complete procure, design-and-build service.

We view projects in their entirety but plan our actions in detail, whereby our objectivity to you as a client is achieved.

Use our Effective, Professional and Successful Strategy

For every successful project the following strategy must be initiated professionally from day one,

  • Early advice in terms of estimation of capital costs before design or based on preliminary estimates, cost-in-use of various materials, financial viability, cash flow statements and advice on contractual and tendering arrangements
  • Cost planning based on budget figures independent of design, unit cost assessment based on sketch designs, cost checking during development of design and incorporating maintenance and/or running costs.
  • Preparation of documentation for competitive tendering through detailed bills of quantities or schedules of works or cost plus contracts or performance specifications or serial contracts, and subsequent tender evaluation and reporting.
  • Financial control during construction and after completion through preparation of phased forecasts of expenditure, periodic financial statements, and interim valuations by normal site measurements, financial appraisals, evaluating contractual claims and variations including checking quantities or costs and negotiating agreements and final accounts.
  • Our systematic and economical approach reduces or even avoids costly legal and economic disputes. This is our main aim.

Use our after completion services

Bills Partnership will give you support after completion of your project through the following,

  • Maintenance contracts by measurement, estimating future maintenance, providing annual maintenance budgets and dilapidation reports.
  • Fire assessment and valuation for insurance purposes.

Use our other services

Bills Partnership will give you support for the following,

  • Arbitration by representing parties in arbitration proceedings, resolution and settlement of disputes inter-parties.
  • Formulating systems for preordering of equipment and materials prior to the appointment of a contractor to reduce costs escalations to a minimum and ensure expedient completion of the contract works.
  • Advice on contract legal matters related to construction.

You determine the financial outcome

  • In today’s compromised climate of sharp competition and decreasing margins, the economical viability of your projects is of paramount importance.
  • Without systematic approach to your projects you will have to carry the financial burden attached to them, jeopardizing cash flow along the way.
  • Bills Partnership can give you all encompassing know-how and experience in construction work covering buildings, infrastructural, structural, mechanical and electrical engineering activities enabling you to identify, understand and thus negate or mitigate all project risks, real or potential.

Your route to economical success

Use our expertise and capabilities in your day-to-day project teams for an effective implementation of projects.

We are flexible and mobile; ready to perform and work where you want us

  • In your office
  • On site
  • Nationally
  • Internationally

A viable investment and cost effective expert knowledge

We will determine our fees for Project Management or Quantity Surveying and Cost Engineering or Contract Administration or Environmental Impact Assessment and Auditing together with you, tailored to your needs.

It is a fact that our involvement will “cost” you a small fraction of the potential rewards resulting from our involvement.

Bills Partnership is an investment worth making, increasing the potential of your projects beyond original expectations.
