At the early stage of any construction project it is essential that professional cost advice is sought to assist the Client and Design Team in progressing the scheme in a cost effective form. Advice can include financial feasibility studies, assessments of multiple configurations / options, forms of construction and internal layouts.
As a project proceeds through the design stage close cost monitoring ensures that the project maintains its cost effective characteristics. The Client and Design Team are updated regularly to ensure that informed decisions are made.
Different Clients demand different characteristics from the project’s development, but all demand value for money. Value engineering is a philosophy of attention to detail. By careful monitoring of constructional form, details and materials specification we are able to continue our policy of cost effectiveness throughout all stages of a construction project.
