The Importance of project specification reviews for E-House builds
Technical specifications deserve special attention especially for complex equipment and challenging environments like Electrification. This is not something you want to risk not having the right people with the right skills “running their eyes over”. EQ|House have the resources and expertise to ensure that what is written and requested in your project specification;
- Meets code
- Is up-to-date with the latest industry requirements
- Is IEC or AS compliant
All too often specifications provided by the Client are a “cut and paste” of a previous or HOW and WHY of the build itself, so a thorough and proper review at the time of tender will enable you to request clarifications and information from the Client prior to your bid being finalised. Ensuring that any technical issues are questioned and answered allowing your bid to satisfy the full requirements of the project at build stage.
Specifications provide the framework against which bid evaluation, inspection, tests and quality checks are made. Failure to give this review process the time it deserves could turn out to be a costly mistake in the long run. With many specifications combining different categories such as functionality, performance and technical details, having an external resources who understand the relationships between all three categories is essential to mitigate cost loss during and at the end of the project.
Part of the EQ|House TENDER PROCESS includes project specification and tender documentation review and the assistance to prepare on your behalf a schedule of inclusions, clarifications and deviations as identified from our review of all tender documentation.
Common concerns that we see include compliance with equipment placement within the E-House itself, Fire and HVAC installation and commissioning to meet various environmental conditions and applications. More often these days projects are executed overseas but are targeted for your local market. Here more than ever is where the project specification review and compliance is critical.
