Our role would be pro-active in advising the Architect as to the level or budget available to me the Employer’s requirements and to assist in the consideration of alternative means of construction. Feasibility studies may be undertaken during the preliminary design development to ensure that the budgetary estimates are met without diminishing the Employer’s requirements. It is essential to consider the cost implication of the design at the initial stages as any cost reduction of specification alterations need to be made or considered at this time. It is essential to ensure the specification and cost reflects the standard required to achieve cost effectiveness with due regard to the buyers perception and market expectation.
