To obtain accurate prices from contractors the correct tender documentation should be issued. Turner Surveyors can put together the entire tender package for a client, manage the tender, and provide tender analysis and recommendations. We can work either from documentation we have produced or with documents provided from elsewhere.

Tender documentation should include the following information:

  • Letter containing appropriate instructions for undertaking the tender.
  • Details and any specific clauses of the contract to be used.
  • Form of tender.
  • As detailed as possible information about the works, taking the form of drawings, specifications, room data sheets, all as appropriate.
  • Pre-tender health and safety plan (should this requirement of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994 apply).

No person or company should ever enter into building works without an appropriate contract in place. The selection of the contract depends on the nature of the works to be undertaken, and the level of protection to be offered by that contract. 

Turner Surveyors are experienced in the writing and contract administration of the following contracts:

  • JCT Building Contract for the Home Owner/Occupier
  • JCT Minor Works Form of Contract
  • JCT Intermediate Form of Contract

We can develop all the relevant design information for inclusion with the tender.

Following the return and opening of the tender, a tender analysis can be carried out and recommendations made. From here, the client will be fully informed in order to appoint the appropriate contractor.
