Cost Management

Cost Management of Construction Projects from Inception to Completion.

Cost Management is at the core of Rogerson Reddan’s services provision. We proactively ensure that cost is considered through all design stages, from inception to completion, and that value for money is achieved for our clients.

We actively engage with project stakeholders and challenge design teams to ensure cost is a key component in determining the optimum design solution.

Rogerson Reddan places an emphasis on proactive cost control and management not just relying on passive reporting. Our multi-disciplinary experience affords us the ability to provide a comprehensive cost management service, enhanced by our knowledge of procurement and construction law.

Rogerson Reddan provide the following cost management services

Preliminary Cost Advice / Feasibility Studies

Rogerson Reddan’s Quantity Surveying team works closely with clients to determine project viability. Our team critically appraises concept designs and key cost drivers providing value driven advice on achieving a commercially viable project.

Budget Cost Planning

As part of the cost planning stage, Rogerson Reddan critically appraises all factors likely to affect cost and engage in a process of review and evaluation of the design. This process informs the design decision making to ensure best value for money is achieved. Our cost plans provide our clients with an accurate reflection of costs and ensures that the designs are proceeding within the approved budget

Value Engineering

Our value engineering approach is not only one of cost appraisal, but also challenges the design concept and assumptions, with a view to enhancing cost effectiveness.

Risk Management

Rogerson Reddan’s approach to Risk Management (RM) is concerned with improving confidence in the outcome of the project by identifying, evaluating, and managing risks at the outset and implementing a RM register to manage it. At Rogerson Reddan, we believe that early identification of project specific risks and the implementation of the appropriate risk mitigation strategies are critical to ensuring project success.

Preparation of Tender Documents

We provide a comprehensive and accurate suite of tender documents which is vital to ensuring tight post contract cost control.

Tender Evaluation

Our focused tender evaluation process is comprehensive.  We methodically drill into tender returns checking for anomalies and verifying compliance with tender requirements. We provide tender reports with clear and concise recommendations to our clients.

Cost Control and Change Management

Our key focus is to identify opportunities that enhance cost certainty and to manage change. We prioritise cost control as opposed to just relying on passive reporting and monitoring.

Payment Recommendations and Final Accounts

Rogerson Reddan carries out detailed reviews and assessments of contractor’s interim and final account submissions. Our post contract cost control procedures ensure that variations are promptly dealt with as they arise during construction, facilitating the avoidance of any surprises or prolonged disputes at final account stage.

Lifecycle Costing

Rogerson Reddan identifies key whole life costing issues requiring strategic decisions early in the design process.  For example, adopting good practice when incorporating affordable and sustainable design solutions and developing a schedule of whole life cost options with indicative budgets for review.

Mechanical & Electrical Cost Consultancy

Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) services installations make up a large proportion of the construction value, typically ranging from 20% to 40%. This proportion is ever increasing as buildings become ‘smarter’. Our dedicated M&E cost consultants critically assess and evaluate the various M&E building services options from the perspective of cost efficiency, functionality, sustainability and environmental impact.
