Development Monitoring

Development Monitoring is usually a requirement of funders, owners and potential occupiers of property. It provides a method of independent certification to parties not usually involved in the common forms of building contract, or who often have no recourse through which to raise their concerns over issues relating to specification compliance, quality and cost of a development project.

Ultimately, it is the end user, investor or occupier that will have a far greater exposure to the risk than the developer whose interest in the development usually ends when the building is completed, sold or let. It is therefore vital that development work is properly executed to ensure the satisfactory delivery of the scheme.

Development Monitoring is about ensuring that the end product meets with the expectations of those who will occupy and be responsible for maintaining and repairing the property post completion.

I recently used Peacock Stevens when looking to purchase a new house. In the end I instructed two surveys as the depth and quality of the report on the first property identified defects that would have meant significant costs to me, meaning I did not proceed.

I am pleased that my second choice was defect free and the quality and detail in the survey was again of the highest standard.

Mrs Frances Hilton

Peacock Stevens recently carried out an RICS Building Survey for me on a house I was looking to purchase. The report was thorough and detailed but was also easy to understand. We are very happy in our new home.

Mr S Davenport

An excellent and comprehensive report and we will take heed of its findings. We are proceeding with the purchase and hopefully all will go according to plan. Thank you and with best wishes

Dr John Taylor-Robinson
