A Scope of Construction Services document sets out the services consultants and/or contractors will carry out on a construction project. Without Scope of Services, there can be uncertainty about a project, including: who is carrying out a particular service, the agreed fee for the services, and what can be considered as an extra service further into the project.
The Scope of Services may be drawn up by the client or Principal Designer (who appoints contractors and consultants to the project). Scope of Services can be written for a specific project, or for more general projects, standard industry templates are available.
The below document (below) explains the requirements of the new CDM 2015 regulations, followed by a Scope of Services template. Our template lists the full range of construction services using a standard tick box format, however services which are not required should be crossed out for clarity.
