Aquarius Grup’s appointment for Swan Office Park was initially to provide the lender, with a project surveyor for the duration of the construction activities.

The scope of Aquarius’ work was to review of all of the construction contracts, design documents, project schedule and the other critical components of the project and report on their completeness. Aquarius also provided support in review of commercial relations and communication between the contractor and the developer, cost/budget over site, including monitoring of expenditures, including all soft costs. We also ensured that the ‘’work in place’’ claimed in the contractor’s disbursement requests was consistent with the conditions in the field.
