Development Planning | Contract and Cost Programming | Development Co-ordination

We  provide Contact and Cost Programming during the pre-contract and post-contract commercial development stage. Our experienced consultants will lead and/or manage all estimating, procurement, pre and post contract commercial management and contractual administration for a programme of works to ensure the successful delivery of construction projects.
This process involves monitoring, managing and controlling the actual costs against the estimate, understanding how and why actual costs occur, and ensuring that the necessary response is taken promptly to ensure actual costs meet or come under budget. We put our clients in full control of the cost and value based decisions that impact the project. We incorporate risk and value management as part of this process, engaging with all stakeholders to ensure innovation and lean based decisions are captured.

As part of this cost management process to establish the total cost of ownership, we adopt a structured approach that addresses all the elements of cost used to produce a spend profile of the product or service over its anticipated life-span.
