As well as producing designs TBA are well versed in producing, written and drawn, specifications and schedules suitable for tendering works to contractors. Often this will also involve determining long and short lists for major projects and the selection of suitable contractors.
Once works are tendered TBA can provide site supervision, to include regular checking of works and reporting to either the client or contract administrator, if landscape is not the main element of a contract. This role can also include certification of payments and reporting on defects through to practical completion and maintenance periods.
TBA have also been the principal consultant in letting several major ground maintenance contracts for social landlords. This has included analysis of the areas to be looked after, assessment of the issues arising and preparation of full landscape specifications. Having tendered the works and selected a contractor TBA have also supervised the works on a day to day basis. This included extensive liaison with both the client tenants groups and individual occupants of affected housing.
