Contract Administration

Our specific service offering is tailored to suit each client and their project. Having knowledge of our client and the challenges they face, we believe we add the most value by providing a holistic service throughout the life cycle of a project with consistent service and resources.

The key to any consultant’s role is to plan effectively within the constraints of the related contracts with the aim to set a clear path that and everyone is aware of who, what, when and how tasks will be undertaken.

We will plan all activities from the client engagement, the design stages to procurement and delivery with achievable timescales and milestones, logic linked and defined.

Watts are also ISO 9001 accredited and run a thorough QA process for which we are audited on a quarterly basis with random spot checks on compliance with our QA procedures. We are also RICS regulated and uphold the standards of a chartered company authorized under contract to provide Contract Administration services.
