Dalriada provides our clients with a single point of responsibility for the administration of the terms and conditions of the building contract throughout the design, construction, handover and defects liability phases of the project and to ensure that the client’s interests are properly represented at each stage of the project life cycle.
In our experience, the overwhelming cause of problems encountered on projects that have required our involvement is due to insufficient and inadequate administration of the contract by all parties on the project.
We realise that the correct administration of a construction contract is a critical part of the construction process. The process is potentially fraught with high risk and is prone to dispute. It requires personnel with a detailed knowledge, understanding and experience of construction contracts in order to enhance the successful achievement of the project’s goals.
