One of the most common questions we get asked is "What will it cost to build my project?".
There is plenty of published information out there which may give you an idea of cost to build, but this is usually based on historical information or published cost ranges and the context of the information is usually misunderstood (ie. what is included, where is the project, when was it build, by who?)
In order to obtain a more accurate cost. we need to understand what it is you are building, where it's located, size of the building, quality and most importantly market conditions. Even better if you have architect concept drawings which we can base a budget estimate on and provide you with more accurate building estimating services
The professional body providing quality professional standards for for Quantity Surveyors is called the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS). CPP at Certified with the body - which is the highest level of attainment possible.
PRELIMINARY & CONCEPT COST ESTIMATES / COST PLANS
Owners and their design teams will generally require realistic cost to build project budgets to calculate feasibility of a project or development, sometimes before a design team is engaged. We can assist by providing cost planning and estimating services to establish realistic budgets to suit your project requirements.
DETAILED COST ESTIMATES & COST PLANS
As highly skilled cost planners and estimators we can prepare cost plans and cost estimates at all levels of design. Ideally, the estimating and cost planning process should begin at project inception and continue through all the design milestones to ensure that budgets are maintained. Value engineering and design option analysis may be undertaken to meet project budget, user or owner objectives.
The cost plans need to ensure that risks are appropriately managed including provisional sums and allowance adjustments.
There may also be reconciliation required between our independent cost plan and one prepared by another party (usually a head contractor or QS) at various milestones. Once agreement is reached within a reasonable cost tolerance, the design can continue to the next phase.
If required we can also produce "one-off" estimates such as concept cost estimates, preliminary cost estimates, pre-tender cost estimates, capital investment value (CIV) estimates or cost checks. Give us a call to see what estimating services we can provide you.
