Our core services are tailored to reflect the evolution of your project. As the cost managers of the construction industry, we guide you through the complex process with a level of assurance that comes with expertise and trusted professionalism. We understand all aspects of construction, and have a unique ability to manage costs effectively, considering quality, value and exposure to risk in the context of the needs of each individual client.
Strategic Definition & Brief
We prepare reliable and robust Order of Cost Estimates to assist you with the finalisation of the Brief for your project. We can also provide Option Appraisals and Cost Benefit Analysis to forensically interrogate alternative building types or development scenarios during these vital early stages of your project.
We realise that for you value for money is paramount, and we have the mechanisms and controls in place to optimise this at every stage throughout the life of your project. We are experienced in hosting Value Management and Value Engineering Workshops, and are driven to eliminate unnecessary cost from your project. Whole Life Costing studies can also be provided when considered appropriate.
Our elemental Cost Plans provide the financial framework for concept design and design development. Our proactive advice informs designers of the cost implications of their proposals, and strives to ensure that you are provided with value for money within your budget. We use the latest technology to provide timely and accurate cost and cash flow information to allow you can make considered and informed decisions on your investment.
We are experienced in developing procurement strategies and in readily identifying the key criteria specific to your project. We don’t merely consider the cost, time and quality characteristics of each strategy, we go further to interrogate other areas such as value for money, project constraints and risk exposure, to ultimately recommend the right strategy for you and your project.
We understand construction contracts, and are experienced in successfully delivering projects under a wide array of Forms. Having established the optimum procurement strategy for you, we go further to recommend a form of contract that reinforces this strategy. Our interpretation of contract conditions is sound, and you can be assured of knowledge based and reliable advice throughout.
We have the experience, knowledge and innovative software systems to provide accurate tender documents, in conjunction with various internationally recognised rules of measurement, in an effective and efficient manner which fits within your overall project programme. Our tender reporting processes are focused and reliable, and are conducted in strict adherence to recognised standards and procedures.
Our cost management systems and processes are strong during the construction stage. We strive to not merely retrospectively report on the implications of change, we instil project controls which manage the process and encourage the proactive agreement of the entire consequences prior to instruction. We are driven and focused on achieving timely financial closure within the predetermined financial limits for your investment.
Our services to you continue after the successful delivery of your project. We can help with reinstatement valuations for insurance purposes, assist fellow professionals with capital allowances considerations and be on hand should you require our support to sustain the performance of your asset.
