The construction industry is complex, and many lenders are not necessarily in possession of the resources or expertise within their institutions to monitor all technical issues and performance requirements and/or develop an informed view of associated cost issues. The professional practice of project monitoring is therefore a means to minimize lenders’ risk exposure in the administration of its loan for a given construction project. The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Canadian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (CIQS) convened a panel of leading practitioners in the field of project monitoring to develop a Guidance Note for project monitoring in Canada.
The Guidance Note will be formally launched in Calgary with a discussion of key aspects covered in the Guidance Note as well as best practices. Panelists would include representatives of banks and developers to give their perspective on the subject matter.
