Understanding, managing and reporting accurately on cost is an important aspect of our advisory role and is part of how we help you to analyse and manage risk. Cost consultancy supports and validates our project consultancy and monitoring.
We bring a new approach to cost consultancy, whereby it becomes an integrated and complementary part of project management, with quantity surveyors working alongside building surveyors. So, they don’t just speak the same language, they report in plain English, too. And where we work with external cost resources, we are also able to address the subject from a common viewpoint.
But it is not, as Oscar Wilde wrote, a case of knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing… We talk ‘property’ as well as ‘construction’, so understand landlord and tenant issues, and what impacts property value, too. This allows us to address the inherent value in your project, rather than just the build costs. And where feasibility studies are required, our team is on hand to respond rapidly with a quantified and confidential report.
You can choose cost consultancy as a stand-alone service to project management and employer’s agent work. Or use the integrated cost consultancy approach to add value to our role as lead expert for technical due diligence, planned maintenance and reinstatement cost assessment.
