Our team has been exposed to the commercial projects as listed and to many other types of construction projects viz. universities, abattoirs, hotels, residential, factories, warehouses, dealerships, clinics and hospitals.
The exposure has broadened our knowledge and understanding of risks and pitfalls to ensure that our hands-on approach will reduce the financial risk of the development and so add value to the roles of each participant in the project.
Our estimate and measurement accuracy is checked against statistical records and against data we have gathered from previous projects. Certain quality control procedures are implemented as cross checks before any estimate or tender documentation is distributed.
Our quest towards excellence can modestly only be demonstrated by the repeat referrals and appointments from our existing clients. Although our list of clients is not large, we are proud of our association with them and their continued support and involvement.
Analysis of projects are undertaken at completion and statistics extracted for use and in cross checking particularly estimates and budgets for new projects.
Our data is constantly updated in our strive to more accurately and quickly advise on all cost aspects of a project.
