- Exaudite provides project management and consultancy services to ecclesiastical organisations to aid the decision making processes primarily in respect of the major church installations of clocks, organs and bells. We are based in the East Midlands so can visit anywhere in the UK.
- The aim is to identify the scope of any project and to set out a specification for it after assessing the present installation and discussing the possible options. Where appropriate we will project manage the scheme on behalf of the church.
- Appropriate contractors can then be invited to tender to that specification, giving them a ‘level playing field’ environment in which to work so that the clients can get the best value for money from what is inevitably a long term and major investment.
We offer qualified piano tuning & maintenance
Although some churches are fortunate enough to have among their numbers people who have a good knowledge of whichever aspect of work is being considered, the majority do not. Usually more than one contractor will be invited to tender as a condition of the grant giving bodies and it is inevitable that each contractor will have their own opinion as to what is required, giving rise to difficulties in the decision making process where these differences manifest themselves. Sometimes it is differences in terminology that can cause confusion, sometimes it is the contractors preferred method of working that give rise to differences. Exaudite can explain and clarify any areas of confusion and thereby enable the church authorities to reach an informed decision on the work they want to have undertaken. Advice can also be given on the necessary planning permission (or faculty in the Anglican Church) and which funding bodies are available.
