Cost consultancy

Cost certainty and control are essential for any client planning to undertake a construction, redevelopment or refurbishment project.

Our services cover every aspect of cost, contract and procurement management, not just during construction and development but throughout the life cycle of any capital project or programme, ensuring there are detailed and rigorous processes in place for agreeing and approving any changes to the scope of the project.

We manage the project strategy and design development stage and ensure all procurement options are fully explored. The procurement proposals and programmes enable clients to make informed choices when considering their desired outcomes against the financial and risk constraints already identified.

During construction, the requirements for change can arise for a wide variety of reasons and so there is a need for prudent financial management to monitor the impact of changes, enabling corrective action to be implemented if there is any risk of the client’s requirements not being met.

This includes management of the client/contractor relationship, measurement and approval of work, agreement of payments and the negotiation of any changes.

We undertake:

  • Feasibility studies
  • Preliminary project cost advice
  • Quantity surveying
  • Insurance replacement cost evaluation
  • Investment return and appraisal
  • Cost planning and budget monitoring
  • Cash flow projections
  • Capital allowance analysis
