VEFA & CCMI Assistance
Case study: VEFA & CCMI Assistance
VEFA and CCMI contracts follow the same legal logic.
Let’s focus on the CCMI: The future buyer entrusts the mission of construction with a significant delegation of autonomy. In Brave New World, if the builder has companions, trained and invested, with a careful mastery that follows the construction sites regularly, everything works well, and delivery is a success.
The reality met by our experts is: some builders delegate the sale of your project “to a smooth talker” salesman paid on commission. The construction performers are constituted only of the «shell » subcontractor, which does everything…wrong, say some clients of our experts. Then comes the construction manager who manages (flies over) between 40, or even 70 sites for some of them met by our experts.
In the end, the commercial vector has become the preliminary purchase of building land and not the know-how of the builder.
On the other hand, the Legal and Claims Department has more resources than the Works Department, so much so that our experts meet regularly for the receptions: the manager, the driver, the TCE mason, an assistant, a lawyer, a builder expert, and a bailiff.
The logic of the system was consistent when we had builders who vertically integrated all trades, but the practice of the “hands off businesses”, aiming to sub-contract everything for economic reasons, make us see elevations of walls after just 24 hours of drying of slab on foundations… “not seen not taken and the disorders appear after the decennial period”….
Is the relevance of the construction delegation (ccmi/vefa) still valid ? That is part of our subjects of reflection at FFEB.
In any event, you cannot be satisfied with site visits at the time of the calls for funds, you must be more present as from the construction.
For you the preliminary investigation: networks, K bis extract, insurances, qualification of the personnel, methodologies, certification.
For your CCMI VEFA construction expert: the regulatory information prior to the act of signature, the technical documentation, the methodology of extended monitoring, the acceptance support.
You tell to our experts: Purchase of a life, indeed 20 years at least, whatever the form chosen, you must be rigorous.
