MAIN CONTRACTING PROCESS
Regardless of the design status of your project, Stratstone Interiors can assist or lead in a design function for you. Stratstone Interiors is an affiliated partner of an Architectural and Interior Design company that will be able to digest, interpret and deliver on the prescribed brief and desired requirements for your project, assisting with any planning permission(s) and production of full working drawings. This function will be provided and delivered working alongside Stratstone Interiors' Project Management team throughout the project until Handover.
Once working drawings are produced and appropriate permission(s) agreed, Stratstone Interiors are equipped to quantify and produce a comprehensive Bill of Quantities (BOQ) for any given project. By harnessing our commercial departments experience and expertise, Stratstone Interiors can provide or support your project regardless of the tendering process or format. In addition to this, Stratstone Interiors will develop any project or commercial documents required in order to suit our Clients requirements, whilst also providing complete transparency. This approach will then enable the review of value engineering/design development options, to see where you can save or spend more money during the tender stage. Finally, all commercial advice will be supported by appropriate and realistic risk and opportunity exercises, developed in collaboration with the Client to provide sufficient early warnings at a point that will reduce commercial and programme impacts.
Stratstone Interiors is obligated to comply with all HSE requirements. If your project exceeds 500 man working hours we will have to notify the HSE and obtain an F10 certificate. We will then help you select a Principle Designer and produce all relevant paperwork including a; Construction Phase Plan, Traffic Management Plan, Waste Management Plan, Emergency Arrangement Plan, Fire Escape Plan and relevant, site specific live working documents. We will also ensure adequate pre-planning is completed in regards to Health & Safety and the HSE requirements.
Upon the agreement of contract and completion of pre-construction services and activities, construction will commence. Through extensive Pre-construction Qualification Questionnaires (PQQ) and vetting processes we will select the best, most qualified sub-contractors for the works that we cannot complete in-house. This process ensures that our sub-contractors are able to produce the quality and reliability that we tirelessly enforce through our company ethos. This process is reinforced by harnessing an established supply chain that has supported delivery of previous projects. The companies and sub-contractors that are included within this resource pool have worked for us previously and are well versed in our company culture. Upon sub-contractor selection completion and the commencement of works on site, Stratstone Interiors Management team will embark on the delivery of the project, ensuring works are being executed to prevailing Building Regulations, and complying with all H&S requirements. Through project milestones and continual programme, commercial and project reviews, Stratstone Interiors will ensure objectives and targets are met and exceeded where possible.

Throughout the construction phase, snagging and quality control will be closely monitored by Senior Management, who specialise in delivery in accordance with a rigorous Quality Assurance Quality Control (QAQC) protocol. Whilst quality assurance (QA) checklists are completed throughout the project, Stratstone Interiors will also ensure another snagging period is undertaken between practical completion and Handover. Completing this stage before handover ensures we present our clients with the very best product to the highest standards. This in house process was established to ensure a zero defect, zero snag mentality.
6. Handover & Defects Liability
We will ensure Handover is as exceptional as it should be. Handover is the true milestone of any project, and the day most widely awaited by the project team and Client. Stratstone Interiors provide detailed O&M manuals, displaying how all items in the project work and how they can be maintained appropriately. For any concerns that may arise during the Defects Liability Period, Stratstone Interiors will manage and arrange the same contractors/employees to attend and rectify the relevant issues as a matter of complete urgency.
