Time and Budget

Whether you are the client or designer, we all have different aims, but a unified desire to ensure the project is completed on time, on budget and in accordance with the intended design criteria.

Open and Honest

We believe open and honest communication with the client’s team and designers throughout the project period ensures andy issues that arise can be dealt with effectively and with the minimum disruption.

Quantity Surveying - Cost Management

We believe accurate and reliable Cost Management is the key to any successful project and we draw on the most reliable and relevant current data to ensure projects are delivered within budget and to all stakeholders’ satisfaction.

There is a strong focus on identifying and managing potential risks and maximising achievable opportunities, and in preparing and managing contingency plans along with accurate and relevant cost control.

Advice throughout the duration of the project can include:

- Feasibility studies
- Cost planning
- Contract and tender procurement advice
- Programming – critical paths and contingency planning
- Value engineering
- Cash flow forecasting
- Risk assessments
- Cost monitoring and control
- Interim valuations and final account

Quantity Surveying - Builder's Quantities

We offer Contractors and Sub-Contractors a full Builders Quantities Service, include measurement for Design and Build tenders where the ability to envisage and quantify any ‘unknown detail’ is critical, traditional construction and timber frame alternatives, as well as concrete frame and steel frame projects.

We are well versed in the proactive approach towards identifying non-compliant alternatives and working closely with the design team. Assumptions made during the measurement process are confirmed in comprehensive ‘measurer’s notes’ attached to the bills.

We produce Bills of Quantities utilising FastEstimate5 software, which can output the bills in the following formats:

- CITE format file
- Printed A4 Bills of Quantities
- Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet
