Contract Administration is a critical component of infrastructure projects, involving the oversight and management of contractual obligations, performance monitoring, and dispute resolution. Our Contract Administration services provide clients with the expertise and support needed to effectively administer contracts, minimize project delays, control costs, and maintain strong working relationships with stakeholders.
With innovative software platforms such as Builterra, our team can utilize its daily inspection reporting capabilities to facilitate the generation of detailed reports, highlighting project progress, variances and tender quantities to monitor project milestones and ensure that project deliverables align with the defined scope. Our team also provides project and construction financial reporting and management services, including cash flow forecasting, allowing our clients to effectively monitor financial resources throughout the project lifecycle.
- Contract Development and Negotiation: Our team assists clients in the development and negotiation of contracts. We work closely with project stakeholders to establish clear and comprehensive contract terms, conditions, and performance criteria. Our goal is to create contracts that align with project objectives, protect client interests, and promote fair and equitable relationships with contractors and suppliers.

Our team conducts regular performance assessments, monitors deliverables, and tracks project milestones. We identify potential issues early on and provide guidance to address performance gaps, minimize risks, and maintain project schedules.

Our contract administrators assess change requests, negotiate terms and costs, and facilitate change order approvals.

We assess the validity of claims, conduct investigations, and assist in negotiation and mediation processes. If necessary, we work closely with legal experts to provide robust representation and support during arbitration or litigation proceedings.

We develop risk management strategies, implement effective controls, and provide guidance on risk allocation and mitigation measures to protect client interests.
