Quantity Surveying and Cost Consultancy

Our Quantity Surveyors and Cost Consultants actively manage project finances and advise on potential risks and opportunities, seeking always to add value and protect your interests.

We work with our clients to develop a budget for the project and control this throughout the design period by producing and updating cost plans. We prepare tender documents and manage the tender process to ensure the most capable contractor for your scheme is appointed. We provide financial management during the construction phase to control costs as the project progresses and keep it within budget.

Our approach to delivering our Quantity Surveying and Cost Consultancy services is focused on understanding the close relationship between cost and value. We have the expertise, knowledge and industry insight, and best practice to ensure your project costs are managed effectively throughout.

Our Quantity Surveying and Cost Consultancy Services

Our Quantity Surveyors and Cost Consultants are the most trusted advisors to our clients. We appoint a senior person as a single point of contact for each of our clients so that continuity is maintained, and a strong relationship is allowed to grow and develop. We embed ourselves in our client’s businesses when working on projects and work very closely so that we fully understand their commercial processes and procedures. This allows them, where required, to drive commercial improvements from the core of a business to ensure commercial resilience.

Supporting our clients in several ways, we can work on a specific project, where we take full responsibility for the commercial function, or we can work alongside our client’s main project teams and provide guidance and additional resource where required.

We add value by identifying risks and opportunities at the early stages of the project. Using our expertise and knowledge of markets and the industry, we provide as much cost certainty, as possible, at each stage of the project. In this way, we eliminate nasty surprises.
