key to the successful execution of any project both from the Client and Contractors point of view is the execution of the stipulated contractual obligations. HIT contracts management involves continuous management and monitoring of these obligations.

Quantity Surveying is key to any successful commercial management and is a strength that HIT is understandably proud of.

From the start of a project the key tenets of quantity surveying enable accurate representation of the works and costs involved in a project. This feeds in to preparation of budgets, cost plans and tender documents and continues in the preparation and evaluation of monthly claims, variations and final accounts.

A meticulous and accurate approach to the quantity surveying aspect of Cost Management ensures that budgets are reasonable, costs are controlled and both the client and Contractor have a reasonable expectation of what they will achieve from the project.

Inevitably disputes arise on many projects and while the intention is often to resolve these amicably, this is not always achievable. HIT have a track record of both preparing and evaluating claims that are concise, complete and accurate representations.

HIT manage claims covering the full spectrum from extension of time to the determination of additional costs incurred due to delays, changing information or revised requirements.

With our in-house expert planning resources, we can ensure that claims preparations and evaluations are always accompanied by a robust study of the time component present in most claims.

HIT was employed by both Parties in the capacity of neutral mediator in an effort to resolve the disputes by way of binding mediation. HIT has examined the claims put forward by each of the parties while ensuring full transparency and compliance with the rules of this mediation. HIT has produced a detailed report of its neutral assessment which was then presented to the Parties to enable an amicable resolution.
