CS2’s cost planning expertise includes the evaluation of alternative design against the client’s value criteria for function, quality and durability.
CS2 provide clients with a cost plan developed through stages of refinement, from the preliminary indication of the costs of a client’s brief, to a market-tested plan. We aim to not only predict how much something will cost to build or provide, but, once design quality is set, how little it need cost.
- CS2 evaluation technique enables clients to optimise their design to fit within the project budget.
- We provide cost plans that are tied to designs and specifications, providing the level of certainty on which to confidently base investment decisions.
- Our process encourages dialogue with stakeholders to help them articulate their needs,
- We help clients to understand the implications of what they are trying to achieve, and arrive at the optimum balance between different, and sometimes competing, objectives.
