Cost Management

We understand the need and provide the expertise to control cost - not merely monitor it - throughout all project phases.

  • Prepare a cost model and budget cost plan for the project
  • Establish construction budget, contingent risk profiles and cash flow projections
  • Analyze alternative procurement strategies and schedule scenarios to illuminate cost impacts
  • Integrate your own costs and facility life cycle projections into the cost mode

  • Evaluate the design and construction decisions made throughout the design phases against the cost model, reconcile deviations, coordinate value management actions, and check sustainable design cost performance. Update phase estimates.
  • Prepare estimates in trade format for comparison with eventual bid results.
  • Perform further value studies and cost options for potential use against budget overruns or under runs upon receipt of bids.
  • Re-evaluate project cost risk and refine contingency profile. 

  • Perform cost-benefit studies to determine the optimum design solutions for key elements, components and systems.

  • Provide independent peer review of cost estimates provided by the design team or contractors and analyze residual cost risks.
  • Act as the your representative to validate costs and maintain overall construction budget

  • Reconcile bid documents and control estimate with contractor bids, support bid leveling negotiations.
