DEVELOPMENT MONITORING

Before any funders, owners and potential occupiers of property agree to fund property developments, they must have a good understanding of the construction aspects of the project. When a development is underway, it must be carefully monitored with regular site visits made in order to pick up any key issues as they arise.

YS Associates understand the importance of safeguarding the commercial interest of our Clients through our appointment.

Our extensive experience in this area of work allows us to identify risks and positively mitigate before they become major issues, thus avoiding unnecessary delay. We ensure we are not viewed as obstructive to the overall process, but rather as development facilitators.

Here at YS Associates, we tailor our development monitoring service, reporting methods and formats to suit the precise requirements of each Clients needs.
