+ Planning permission: planning advice, consultations and negotiations
With all new buildings and substantial reformations, it is best to obtain at least three separate tenders for the work; we suggest which constructors are most suitable for the size and complexity of the work.
We provide a comprehensive and tested legal document in Spanish and English, which defines all aspects of the relationship between the Promotor and Constructor which is amended to take into account any particular issues raised by either party.
Building quality is clearly defined in the contract documents (specification), but this has to be checked and verified as the work proceeds by making weekly inspections. The appointment of an Aparajedor (Technical Architect) is a legal requirement for all major work, and we collaborate with a Palma based firm who undertakes the health and safety issues and structural calculations which have to be approved by the OCT (Office of Technical Control) which issues a 10 year structural warranty.
Financial planning and management is part of the vital service that we offer so that clients are aware of the cost of each element of the project and the Certification of the completed work. This is based on the mediciones or Bill of Quantity which states the amount and rate for each item of work. We recommend and appoint sub-contractors who can complete any specialised work or installations required.
