Commercial Success


If you want your next project to be a world leader, you need to take control of costs. With RLB’s help, you can balance your budget and bring imagination to life.

Cost Management & Quantity Surveying

How can you achieve value for money on your next project? The secret to your project’s commercial success, regardless of its size or scale, is to balance quality against costs. As some of the world’s best cost managers, we know how to secure value for money. We offer expert advice to stretch your dollar further throughout the project lifecycle, from preliminary cost planning to value engineering, cost comparisons, materials selection and buildability through to post-contract services. Our global footprint is complemented with deep experience at the local level. When it comes to cost management, we know every project counts.

Find out your project’s feasibility, fast

An accurate feasibility study is a prerequisite of any decision-making process. Whether you need a simple return on capital cost or a detailed discounted cash flow feasibility, RLB can provide independent advice and pioneering approaches to help you stress test your vision. Our dynamic cost benchmarking data and advanced cost modelling can help you to review alternative design options, explore ‘what if’ scenarios and identify the most cost-effective approach.

Gain certainty and confidence on every project

As financiers tighten their lending criteria, they are looking for information they can trust. RLB’s two-step approach to financial institution audits can give you a comprehensive project profile at the pre-commencement and post-contract stages. We can prepare reports that outline everything from project costs and adequacy of documentation to authority approval monitoring, progress payment assessments and recommendations. With the right information ready, you can give financiers peace of mind that your project is on track.

Uncover new value through fresh perspectives

When it comes to project success, you want experts that are always searching for something better. By integrating value and cost management, RLB has developed a powerful and dynamic approach that can help you challenge options and design assumptions. We can lead your project team through a participatory workshop that encourages collaboration and creative thinking. With our laser focus on both value and cost during the design phase, you can uncover savings that go straight to your bottom line.

Make smart, strategic decisions every time

Construction is complex – and so too are the decisions that your project teams make. Cost certainty during design and construction relies on robust methodology, up-to-date data and skilled staff. We can apply our proven cost management, monitoring and cost reporting procedures to your project to ensure you control costs and balance your budget. With a global cost database and powerful software out our fingertips, RLB provides accurate and detailed tender documentation and cost estimates on some of the world’s best projects – and your project could be the next one.

Balancing time, beauty and budget on the Hong Kong Palace Museum

A ceramic headrest made more than a millennia ago, a jade imperial seal from the Qing dynasty, and a poem written on paper by Emperor Huizong in the 11th century… Such treasured objects demand a building of rare beauty to match, and the new Hong Kong Palace Museum does not disappoint.

“I consider RLB performed their services with a high degree of professionalism and integrity in what were testing circumstances and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to perform Cost Consultant services in the future.”
