What A Scope Is?

What’s a scope?

Strata managers often need to oversee all aspects of administration and facilities management, which may mean getting to know diverse aspects of building construction and maintenance… including waterproofing.

For the waterproofing process to run smoothly and efficiently, you must understand the importance of a clear and comprehensive scope – and why following scope recommendations will make all the difference.

What Is A Scope?

So what is a scope?

To get the right tradespeople to tender for any waterproofing job, you will need a professional report outlining the specific issue or issues, and detailed instructions on the complete repair required work.

Scopes can be put together by engineers or waterproofing consultants.

The scope is central to the tender process. The engineer or consultant who writes the range will fully understand the problem and the solution. They will generally put the tender out to 3 or 4 contractors before making a final recommendation. They will pass their report and recommendation onto you to present to your strata Executive Committee.

Why Do Recommendations Matter?

Understanding the scope will save you precious time and effort. If you decide not to go with the engineer’s recommended waterproofer, or if you choose to put tenders out yourself in hopes of finding a lower price, you may find that you’re not targeting the right technicians.

You could also find yourself in a situation where contractors alter the scope to save costs and reduce fees… and that can compromise the effectiveness of the waterproofing plan.

Another critical point is that incorrect scopes may impact work further down the track.

Most issues with remediation projects, for instance, are a disconnect between scope and delivery. When someone offers you bargain waterproofing that doesn’t fulfil the requirements of the original scope, it will undoubtedly fail to rectify the problem. We’ve helped strata owners that have been beset by problems for years… such as in this Surry Hills property.
