We have a dedicated and highly motivated team with extensive technical experience that can provide a fully encompassing CMT role or any specific design audit requirement.

Darling Monitor was set up by the directors of Darling Associates who have a successful track record of designing buildings across many sectors. Generally, we see our building designs through to completion on site but also deliver projects from post planning stages.

We have an exemplar team with an industry wide reputation for interior architecture that has extensive residential and office space planning experience.

We have significant heritage and listed building experience and are well versed in resolving the often-conflicting requirements of Building Control and listed buildings.


CMT Complete

By appointing Darling Monitor as the single point contact for your project, we would manage and provide a holistic CMT package with our experienced CMT partners.

The assembled team would have leading industry experience and the necessary construction background on which to collaborate in a CMT role, specifically tailored to your demands.

CMT Partial

Our services can also be provided simply as Monitoring Architect in a larger team, where we can provide selected services, rather than the full set featured in CMT Complete. In these circumstances, it is essential that the separate appointments that make up the full CMT team provide a fully coordinated service.

We have always been proactive in ensuring this happens, irrespective of whether we have an appointed overseeing lead role.

Our Team

Every CMT Partner we collaborate with is an industry leading specialist company, with extensive construction experience.

The CMT Complete team is based around skilled individuals from those companies who have worked successfully in a CMT or a CMT-related role.

Which level is right for you?


We will provide a review of all novated designers and sub-contractor information produced through the building contract (reviewing against employers and legislative requirements), inspection and reporting on all benchmark samples, attendance and reporting at progress meetings and key package meetings, general site inspections and a full involvement in the certification of practical completion, through snagging inspections, including during the defects liability period.


For various reasons a more abridged service may be considered more appropriate for your project. A thorough and professional service is still provided at the highest degree of risk avoidance, however the extent of the service will be project specific. It could be a sample checking procedure, that might involve something close to comprehensive or be restricted to a review of specific package information or attendance at key meetings or site inspections.

Design Auditing

Auditing a building design can happen at a relatively earlier stage, possibly associated with the technical Due Diligence of an incoming investor or a Peer Review leading to a fully optimised development, prior to production of tender information or planning submission, might be deemed beneficial.
Darling Associates have an industry wide reputation for optimising residential apartment and office building layouts that has led to significant uplift in development valuations. We are well placed to carry out such roles alongside a Darling Monitor technical review.
