APS will visit the construction site a minimum of once a week
During such a project APS will visit the construction site a minimum of once a week, often amendments to design or specialist problems occur which will require additional visits to site.
Progress is closely monitored with conversations and meetings recorded as minutes of meeting. All relevant parties present at the meeting are copied in on the document with any amendments or important instructions served to the contractor including relevant parties as a variation. Variations can often mean a change to the contract sum this will be itemised on the variation certificate with the approximate cost and adjusted contract sum. It is also APS’s role to monitor the works and assess whether the building contractor has carried out the work that he is invoicing for. APS will carry out visits to site which are associated with Contractors invoices usually on a monthly basis to assess the Contractor’s progress and issue interim payment certificates.
