Value Added Services : Technical Due Diligence

Innerworks recognises that, as an investor or lender in an Indian real estate project, you have a financial exposure that is measured by technical aspects on site which are far different from a balance sheet. As a project management and MEP firm in our own right we apply relevant technical knowledge and experience to our audit process, guiding you through the details.

  • At the technical due diligence level, we offer comprehensive and professional analysis
  • At the pre-investment stage, we assess a potential project and evaluate its feasibility Our comprehensive advisory report looks at an investment from all angles - location, market conditions, roadwork and power plans, water availability, and more - so that you are able to make an informed decision about the investment.
  • For live projects, we offer continued services into the pre-construction and construction stages, with regular supervision and assessments that track progress, costs and cash flow forecasts, quality, and any additional information requested by the lender/investor.

Innerworks’s technical audit services include:

  • Advisory reports prior to investment
  • Time to complete/cost to complete
  • Budget/BOQ validation
  • Contract peer review
  • Site inspections: quality, progress, safety
  • Costing validation/bill checking

Value Added Services : Design Management

Everyone wants a smoothly delivered project. But if the focus on an accountable process only begins at the execution stage, the battle may be lost before it even begins. Unchecked drawings coming to site at the last moment, from each respective agency - this is the reality of a great many projects, and it leads to chaos and lack of transparency - not to mention stress and financial uncertainty - until the end of the project.

Smooth design management is thus critical to a successful project. Planning, sequencing, and organisation allows for up front agreement and coordination by all design participants on drawings, design styles, templates, fonts and integrated numbering. It enables clear agreement on drawing delivery dates. Good design management also provides time for identifying mistakes and value engineering.

Innerworks’s design management consists of:

  • Assistance in developing the design brief
  • Development of pre-project flow chart (drawings package dates)
  • Team selection via RFP/RFQ: architectural, structural, cladding, ID, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, lighting, landscape
  • Design kickoff: induction and sign off on common design format, common project numbering system, drawing lists for design packages, and delivery commitment dates
  • Regular design review meetings and drawing follow up
  • Value engineering

Key Considerations:selection of the most appropriate designers/consultants for the type of project planned; relevant experience; willingness to work as part of a consultant-led team.

Value Added Services : Quality Assurance/Quality Control

It should seem an obvious dilemma: the team doing the construction work - penalised for defects - may not be the best candidate to identify those defects. Just as you use an auditor to review a company’s books, Innerworks’s quality assurance services serve as an oversight to ensure the best possible quality sight. And while it is easy to point out errors and omissions of others, such flaws means time and cost to you: a small amount of precise prevention is more valuable than a large amount of correction. Thus, Innerworks calls upon our long experience in project management to provide training, guidance, and our own pre-execution checklists to help the contractors prevent costly and time-consuming quality failures. Such steps may not prevent every matter, but is more in your interests than repeating problems without solutions.

Innerworks’s quality assurance / quality control services include

  • A review of the design and BOQ for design issues that can lead to quality challenges
  • Review of integrated schedule to determine if sequence is optimum for quality
  • Regular visits
  • Checklists for quality concreting, plastering, electrical work, water pipe fitting, etc.
  • Training in use of checklists and other quality assurance procedures and practices
  • Weekly/monthly reports, with photographs, of quality issues, solutions, and preventions

Considerations:review of site, review of design and BOQ, review of contractor and their QA processes; review of contract and its responsibilities - and penalties for missing them; review of project sequence schedule.

Value Added Services : Quantity Surveying & Cost Management ( QS )

When you are considering building options, solid cost information is your key driver. You need accurate estimates of consultant rates, material quantities and rates – even updated costs of labour and equipment. Every item, no matter how small, matters when it is multiplied by a million or more square feet. Innerworks is able to provide cost analysis from the experience base of a company that executes projects, not just estimates them. Our practical and up to date experience in sourcing the very best rates, factoring in accurate wastage, and estimating realistic consultant time requirements are just a few of the capabilities Innerworks can offer that a typical QS agency cannot, thus saving you money and helping you forecast more accurate cash flows.

And, of course, only a company that actually manages the design process of projects can value engineer your project to help make sure that the quantities estimated are the lowest volume requirement; that the items are the most suitable; and the design is the most appropriate. Finally, by being a part of the design and project management process, the flow from QS and actual cost management remains transparent, pro-active, and responsible.

Some of the important value-adds Innerworks brings to QS includes:

  • Building and maintaining a National Vendor List to provide a wide, competitive and constantly updated database of potential bidders for every package
  • Building and maintaining a material cost database of the latest costs we are experiencing first-hand across our projects, nationwide
  • A trained team, with first-hand, practical project execution experience
  • Our continuous worldwide search for architects, contractors, technologies and techniques to bring in fresh design concepts, value engineer designs, and improve efficiency, speed – and savings

After building value-engineered BOQ’s, Innerworks can stay engaged for the duration to handle total project cost management:

  • Tender Management - To help identify, negotiate and bring aboard the right contractors and vendors who will provide product and service at the estimated rate.
  • Bill Certification - To measure incoming materials, usage, and wastage to provide bill certification to ensure costs stay aligned with estimates and work orders and present the same

Innerworks value-adds for Cost Management:

  • Market knowledge of contractors and vendors
  • Strong leverage, as a regular selector of vendor and contractor services, to push for best rates
  • Template-driven process for legally-vetted tender documents, work orders
  • "All Factors" selection process to ensure best value work orders and purchase orders
  • Trained engineers and excellent site processes for bill certification
  • Cost and cash flow tracking documentation
  • Integration of project management skills to provide accurate estimates of costs to finish and future cash flow forecasts


Innerworks’s experience and template-driven excellence goes beyond our construction management capabilities; we are a leader in on-site safety, a crucial aspect of any project. Innerworks sets and maintains the highest standards in order to ensure that all construction days are safe days. Whether it is refurbishing a 15,000 square foot office space or building a multi-million sft greenfield project, Innerworks has the expertise to make monitor, advise, and conduct on-site training in order to actively prevent incidents.

Our unique safety process begins at the start of any project: by drafting all levels of safety requirements and tailoring them to the project.
