Construction Cost Management & Value Engineering

Value engineering depends on accurate quantity surveying and value analysis; assessing the value of  design in relation to costs and benefits in both form and function, to ensure the most cost effective, desirable outcome for you. Our experience in construction cost management has provided significantly better outcomes across a range of construction projects

Value engineering – through effective quantity surveying

Detailed analysis of costs, allows us to understand exactly where savings can be made, in the build and as importantly, over the life time of the building. We support effective construction project  management in finding significant savings through more effective procurement strategies,  programming, construction methodologies and price negotiation.  Furthermore, our ability to accurately measure and forecast means you can see the value  engineering consequences of multiple approaches and then compare them to inform your decision.

Working with Cuesko gives you more ammunition to negotiate and a powerful means to deliver above expected outcomes.

Specialist construction cost management

Value management is a whole of project approach from concept design through construction.
Throughout your construction project life cycle, robust cost surveying helps keep you on track and shows you where you can improve return, save costs or both. To support your construction cost management, we are able to provide accurate, quantifiable numbers to your options, assess and analyse risks and recommend appropriate allowances to protect you against unplanned  eventualities.

With Cuesko as part of your team, you will have the information you need to more effectively inform  your construction project management every step of the way. And ensure both you and your  stakeholders will have the peace of mind you need.
