The role is normally used by clients when they intend to either refurbish an existing building or design a relatively uncomplicated building where input from other consultants would not be required.

The client can have a high degree of input into the design of the build and has the simple task of only having to appoint one consultant. Sherwood Surveyors becomes the single point of responsibility and manages all aspects of the project.
