Cost Management


We add value and support to our clients to maximise returns on their investment.  Effective cost management is key for continued success and performance of your property assets.  It is vital to balance cost against quality, certainty and risk.


We specialise in all aspects of cost management, providing services which include cash-flow forecasts, cost planning, final account analysis, cost reconciliation and quantity surveying.


Project Management


Successful project management requires professional experience from all sectors of the construction industry.  We have valuable experience in the following sectors:


- Commercial fast track supermarket refurbishment programmes

- New Build/Acquisition developments

- Pub conversions to commercial premises

- Rebranding roll out programmes


Our business has evolved from client consultancy, quantity surveying and our management backgrounds.  We ensure that we deliver a carefully co-ordinated, seamless and integrated service to take the burden off our clients.  We will manage complex projects through all stages of the programme from inception to completion.


Programme Analysis


Sound planning and phasing is a key part to delivering successful projects on time, at the correct price to the best quality and safely.  Reactive planning will always cause one of the following problems:


a)  delayed programme delivery

b)  additional cost

c)  poor quality

d)  risk to safety


We provide services to include detailed programmes on Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Project software.  In addition easy to understand phasing plans can be produced on Powerpoint software to work hand in hand with the programmes.


Sound programmes and planning can provide vital data for not only the project in hand but for future schemes.


- Critical path analysis

- Labour resource tracking

- Peak programme management

- Safety risk analysis
