Quantity Surveying

The Practice handles estimating and cost control, the tendering process and, after contract award, the commercial interface. The practice caries out estimating and measurement of construction works prior to tender, producing the bill of quantities; produces tender documentation and manages the tender process; clarifies and evaluates tenders; and manages the resultant contract through monthly valuations, variations control, contract administration and assessment of claims.
Our highly trained team ensures that projects are designed and constructed in such a manner as to secure value for money, cost certainty and programme dates.

Project Management

Effective teamwork ensures success and to achieve this we developped client briefs and built project teams that can respond with best practice solutions. Understanding the needs of the many stakeholders, building and motivating the team, coordinating the work of different contributors and managing changes to the plan along the way are all aspects of our role in delivering to the brief. Project Management stands on knowledge, leadership and creativity.

Development Management

We work across a range of projects in both the public and private sectors. As Development Managers we take a project from inception through to completion. We manage the team and any third parties, negotiating all the necessary consents for the project. We work creatively with designers, agents and funders to achieve the returns as per the financial model.


Arbitration is a legal technique for the resolution of disputes whereby two parties agree to be bound by the decision of an independent third party (the arbitrator). The role of an arbitrator is similar to that of a judge, though the procedures can be less formal and an arbitrator is usually an expert in his/her own right.


Adjudication is a statutory ADR process for the construction industry in the UK, Cyprus and many other countries. The construction adjudicator is required to make an interim decision within 28 days of referral, providing a quick and effective way of resolving disputes arising out of construction contracts.


Mediation is a confidential, informal and voluntary way of resolving a dispute with the help of a neutral third person (the mediator). The mediator works with both parties and helps them to reach a mutually agreeable solution.

Mediation procedures are used in a variety of contexts, including:
Construction contracts
Commercial contracts
Workplace grievances
Community disputes

Christophorides Makris and Partners Ltd. offer a wide range of specific services to correctly evaluate, define and articulate project objectives, enhance the delivery of value and reduce the risks of a project, from inception through to completion.

Once the erisks have been identified, they ar assessed as to their potential severity of impact and to the probability of occurrence.

Therefore, in the assessment process it is critical to make the best educated decisions in order to properly prioritize the implementation of the risk management plan.

Our company has the knowledge and the experience in managing risks and realising opportunities in relation to achieving an organisation's strategic objectives.

Construction Management

Construction management provides a very successful alternative to traditional methods of procuring construction works, where the construction manager will be appointed on a professional basis to deliver the construction project.

It provides the client with the ability to actively manage cost and risk to suit their specific requirements throughout the lifecycle of a project.

Construction Management is a professional and non-adversarial way of organising and directing manpower, materials and equipment to accomplish the building designer’s vision for a project, without using a main or management contractor.

Monitoring Construction projects for banks and other financial institutions.

This is a specialised service provided for mainly Banks and Financial Institutions in order to monitor building/construction developments financed by the Banks and advise the Bank accordingly. The objective is to ensure, as far as possible, that the Banks’ risks inherent in the construction of those developments are kept to a minimum.

Our function includes, amongst others, valuing the work to ensure that advances do not exceed the value of the work executed, auditing the final account, and cost control.  Furthermore, in order to safeguard  the Bank’s collateral, it is essential to ensure that buildings are properly designed, backed by design warranties from the consultants, and are also properly constructed.

We therefore look into all these matters and employ, on behalf of the Bank concerned, structural engineers and building surveyors to provide their specialist expertise.
