We require all of our subcontractors to complete our pre-qualification questionnaire & check list with insurance form, which incorporates working safely on site, these documents are available upon request. We only use subcontract workers who have taken the CSCS health & safety exam.
Whenever possible, Performance Electrical is keen to utilize sub-contractors which have been tried and tested and therefore progressed onto the approved list of sub-contractors.
Two and/or three sub-contractors are invited to tender/quote for each specialist installation. i.e fire alarms, cat 5 cabling, security systems etc. This procedure ensures cost certainty and the opportunity to evaluate any significant variance.
Once a sub contractor has been selected, we invite them to the table to discuss programme, contract documentation, attendances and commercial queries. All this will be logged on a ‘pre order sub contract questionnaire.’ A copy of which will be appended to the potential order.
Within the order we ensure the contract conditions/terms etc. Are totally back to back with our own contract with the main contractor and any revised programmes, drawings and instructions are automatically forwarded to the sub-contractor via our document handling system.
When the contract has been awarded to a sub-contractor, a pre-contract meeting is set up on site to further familiarise the contractor with the site conditions, access and logistics. These meetings are arranged on a weekly/fortnightly basis (dependant on size / duration / complexity), usually 2 days prior to main contract progress meeting. Within these meetings all topics/queries discussed are minuted and communicated to the main contractor.
Performance electrical also insists all variations are quoted on a monthly basis so as to maintain an accurate cumulative value of the project.
