Budget Estimating & Cost Planning

Providing detailed cost estimates at an early stage, CuddyQS will establish initial budget costs. This enables us to identify where specific costs arise. This detailed cost estimate will provide a cost model framework on the project. This attention to detail ensures that we provide the best possible service to our Client from the outset.

Once an initial overall budget is agreed, we undertake to continuously review and control the budget as the design progresses. Cost control procedures have been established which are firm enough to be effective and flexible enough to adapt to the individuality of the project.

CuddyQS ensure that cost control measures carried out during the pre-contract phase are continued in a smooth manner throughout post contract duties. Project Surveyors are assigned on a project basis from project inception to post-contract completion. During the works, we are determined to ensure that the project is completed on budget.

We also manage Interim payment recommendations, monthly cost reports, and cash flow projections.
