RLB voted preferred cost consultant partner

February 2, 2016.

Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) has been voted preferred global cost consultant partner, according to the World Architecture 100 2016 Survey.

The annual World Architecture 100 rankings are compiled by surveying 1,350 leading architecture practices worldwide. The annual survey ranks the top global 100 architecture firms in terms of annual turnover in addition to the top cost consultant, project manager, building contractor, service engineer and structural engineers these architects prefer to work with.

RLB topped the 2016 list as preferred cost consultant partner for the first time, replacing last year’s leader AECOM.

Commenting on her firm’s success in topping the cost consultant poll, RLB Global Chairman Ann Bentley pointed to the partnership’s independent status.

“This is a fantastic accolade for our work globally, and we are proud the architecture community holds our consultancy in such high regard.

“Our market has seen a lot of change over the last few years, with many mergers and acquisitions taking place. Our status as an independent advisor gives us a clear differentiator and it is an important distinction for our clients when they are selecting their partners to appraise their projects.

“Our company structure is focused on a regional approach in every country we operate in, meaning we can provide committed local support and expertise underpinned by the strength and knowledge of the global practice.”

RLB’s top ranking as preferred global cost consultant partner was followed in ranking order by Langdon &; Seah (2nd), Gardiner &; Theobald (3rd) and Turner &; Townsend (4th). Last year’s leader AECOM, ranked fifth place in the 2016 results.

When it comes to which cost consultant leading architects think provides the best service, RLB is the new global number one.
