Cost Management

Our Role

As an architect, engineer or owner, you understand the importance of the project budget. We can assist you in reducing the risk of project cost overruns throughout the course of the project. We achieve this by integrating our multi-disciplined staff of cost estimators, mechanical and electrical engineers, quantity surveyors and construction management personnel with our state-of-the-art estimating software and technology.

Our Process

Over the years we have compiled an extensive cost database, which we continuously update with costs obtained from recent project bid results, GMP reconciliation, change-order negotiations and regular material, and equipment and labor rate price checks. We use the latest project cost control techniques to establish realistic project budgets. We then carefully monitor the design of your project as it progresses through all phases to keep it in line with the approved budget.

Also, we assist in bid review and analysis and with implementing effective cost control measures during the construction and close-out/occupancy phases of the project.
