Commercial Success

Cost Management & Quantity Surveying


Selecting the correct procurement strategy for your project is key to its commercial success. It is our understanding of your markets that enables us to deliver market-facing procurement strategies that engage supply chains effectively. Based on your objectives in relation to cost certainty, quality of design, workmanship and programme, our experts will develop your procurement strategy and execute it, engaging with the supply chain and your stakeholders to deliver successful outcomes.

Improve supplier engagement

A crucial step in procurement is the engagement of contractors and suppliers. Based on the scope, content, complexity and need for specialist knowledge and innovation, we can determine the most appropriate contractors or suppliers for your project. We undertake market engagement and supplier pre-qualification to give rigour to the process. Our strategies will identify possibilities for early contractor involvement and longer-term contracting.

Enhance your tender analysis

Undertaking a detailed tender analysis ensures both compliance with the tender requirements and parity between bids. During the preparation of tender and contract documents, we will provide details of the project specifications and clearly identify the risks associated with your project.

Make value-based decisions

Your desired outcomes can only be achieved when supplier selection is based on the value criteria set in the formulation of your procurement strategy. We will facilitate a robust contractor assessment against your objectives, including environmental and social value metrics, delivering a fair and transparent process.
