You are now in the phase where you can compare the tender prices of the contractors and choose the client for your project. The final step in the process for the architect is to inspect and certify the construction until it is completed. These are usually interim payment certificates issued by the procuring entity to the contractor, customers for the “use” of funds intended for a financial institution and, finally, to certify that this building has been constructed in accordance with the building permit, building rules and drawings, details and specifications. Then, when everything is ready, the diamond gets one last polish and you move in and enjoy the property: Mark Stephens Architects are very flexible in their approach; We can either provide the whole process or just a few steps. You get the best advantage from your architect if he/she is appointed for the entire process, but sometimes we offer partial performance. Please CONTACT us if you think we can help you. Construction costs The cost of a construction project depends on a large number of factors, including size, construction, materials, surfaces and location context.

No.9 of 2014. The new house or extension (>40m²), if you opt for the system, must be checked and certified in accordance with a code of conduct agreed with the client for the construction to comply with the construction rules. Mark Stephens MRIAI is also able to perform these tasks as an “assigned certifier”. To advise, manage, monitor and help control construction and construction costs, the services of a Quantity Surveyor Project (PQS) are advised. The PQS can define at an early stage the projected construction costs of a project. The PQS will help compare designs with clients` budgets.
It can also, at a later date, quantify variations (e.g. .
