Concept Stage Advice & Cost Consultancy

At the project concept stage, we can help you review the project plan and assist in firming up the scope of works and offer early stage cost advice, to be firmed up later as the design and scope is refined. We can attend site and offer advice on any potential site issues that your selected contractor may encounter, compiling a full risk and opportunities management plan. Being proactive and identifying these risks as early on as possible will prevent contractual issues arising at a later date.
