The construction management can be either an Architect or a Quantity Surveyor. In addition, most building permits require both. The Architect, as construction manager, and the Quantity Surveyor, as construction execution manager. Finally, the construction manager (D.O.) and the construction execution manager (D.E.O.) form the project management (D.F.). In Pujadó Soler we are both Architects and Quantity Surveyors so we perform this service in an integral way.
