Human recourse development:
We are a medium size company who encourage our staff to attend regular courses to develop their skills related to general business, as well as the participation in the Continuing Professional Development System monitored by our Association. We have been involved in preparing documentation specifically designed to ensure active involvement of sub-contractors previously excluded from the market due to lack of knowledge regarding tender procedures and contractual matters.
We are or have been involved in projects varying from office developments, hotels, lodges, private schools, retail, auditoriums, refurbishments, pharmaceutical, motor dealerships, township developments, filling stations, warehousing and offices, retirement villages, etc.
The Association of SA Quantity Surveyors have published a model form of agreement to be used between the consultant and employer which cares for the interests of both parties. We prefer using the model agreement although all our contracts thus far have been negotiated to suit each particular project without the model form of agreement.
Fee structures have been based on the tariff fee as published by the association as a guideline. Each project's fee will be negotiated based on type of project, responsibilities, specific involvement over and above normal duties, etc.
Professional indemnity insurance is renewed annually with a present limit of R 10.0 million. Should the client or specific project require a higher limit or specific cover for a special project, this can be arranged.
Our association compels us to record any involvement in any firm, company or product which could in any way jeopardise our professional service.
