The importance of choosing the right procurement method

We understand the importance of choosing the right procurement method in order to achieve project success.

We work closely with our clients to assess risk and market conditions before committing to a procurement strategy. We understand the impact of the market on your chosen procurement route and our advice ensures value for money whilst reducing risk and maintaining the viability of the scheme.

Delivering financially sustainable projects

We maintain in-depth benchmarking data for residential projects, which means we can compare elemental costs and ensure we deliver a financially sustainable project.

From the outset we assess the project requirements and provide our clients with anticipated costs based on known benchmarking data. This wider review of project costs ensures that where required, alternative strategies can also be explored.

We protect our clients’ interests from the risks associated with the developments and act as an investigator and trusted advisor, helping clients make informed decisions.

Ensuring project viability

We have experience of successfully supporting our clients in securing funding. We work with many banks and lenders, providing them with the knowledge and comfort that their interests are being monitored and protected.

Our expert and independent advice offers assurances by assessing and mitigating risk, providing early warnings, and in the event of any deviation, bringing the project back within the funding criteria.
