Our services would normally comprise meeting with the design team and client to ascertain the brief and particular requirements and providing initial cost advice on the likely cost of the works. At this stage it might be necessary to prepare a target cost plan if the client has a fixed budget but does not have an agreed design. This target cost plan will help to inform the design team of the level of specification that is possible within the available budget. Where the brief is better defined and an outline scheme has been agreed we will prepare a cost plan based on measured works as far as possible with reference to costs of previous similar projects where the specification is not defined.
For works involving repairing historic buildings we would normally visit the building with the Architect to ascertain the likely scope of repairs, etc and measure and value the works based on previous experience and current market rates.
