As a first step our cost consultant will undertake an in-depth review of the principles of the project to verify the requirements are fully understood at commencement.
An essential part of any venture is to establish at the early stages if the project is viable. Our cost consultants in the UK work to identify feasible options which then assist in the development of the project brief. This is a comprehensive study reviewing project specific issues which include, but are not limited to, planning, environmental impact, statutory requirements, site appraisals, number of units and procurement options.
Design & Buildability
As cost consultants, we are also keen to ensure that the design facilitates the ease of construction. Obstacles, oversights, and omissions in the design are identified before the commencement of construction to prevent delays and overruns on construction costs during the build.
Our focus is on the value over cost, so that unwanted costs are eliminated whilst the function and quality are improved so that each construction project will give the maximum performance for the money invested.
Cost Planning & Analysis
Our cost management plan will detail the costs for all activities so that the project costs can be planned, analysed, and controlled to ensure the optimum level of funding is put in place.
Risks can be of different types: some will be inherent in all projects and some are unique to the project proposal arising out of various factors that will influence the investment on the construction project. We will identify risks and calculate the degree of impact. Advice is then given by our cost consultant on avoiding or mitigating the risks specific to the project.
As part of a tender service, our construction cost consultants can prepare a bill of quantities which enables you to assess the different tenders more easily from different building contractors.
