Cost management

Sillence Hurn provides a range of cost management services throughout the design, procurement and construction phases of building projects.

We manage all the construction and professional fees involved in development, repair and refurbishment projects for both commercial and residential clients in the South of England and in the London area.

Cost management

For larger commercial or residential building projects, it is important that quantity surveyors are employed to help understand and manage the costs involved in the successful completion of the project.

They will have detailed understanding of managing the costs and risk associated in construction project planning and management. Their role begins during the feasibility and planning stages and they will take into account all parts of the process to ensure that the desired outcome is achieved by the end of the development. 

Whether it is a new build, repair work or refurbishment, controlling the costs is essential to the successful completion of construction projects. Cost management and quantity surveying can include a number of the following activities, which are designed to support the client, contractors and financiers throughout all stages of work:

  • Feasibility studies, cost modelling, cost planning and bench marking
  • Due diligence and acquisition support
  • Value engineering and risk management
  • Contractual advice, employer’s agent, contract review and administration
  • Cost control, valuations and change management
  • Supply chain management and procurement
  • Reinstatement valuations
  • Project auditing and final accounting
