Kwanto - Phase 1: Concept

By: Kwanto  05-Apr-2012

At this stage you may have been approached by a client who wants to renovate or build, whether it is commercial, residential, heritage or maintenance work. They may have a wish list for the project. Ideas are still fluid and either sketch plans or resource consent drawings may be drawn.

This is a critical stage for a construction cost consultant to be involved. This is the most crucial cost check for the project as it is at this stage that a project is assessed for viability. Aligning expectations with budget is a key objective of our services at the concept stage.

Kwanto can provide a range of services at this stage to help nail down costs.

Kwanto - Feasibility Analysis

A feasibility analysis enables all parties, including funding institutions, to have a clear idea of the key financial milestones and the necessary targets for the project to get off the ground. Feasibility analysis assesses the viability of a project over its expected life and indicates the probable return on investment. To ensure a project can be achieved within a set budget, accurate estimating and cost information is essential.


Kwanto - Estimation and Cost Planning

The primary aim of cost planning is to ensure that the first estimate, the accepted tender, and the final cost of construction do not differ significantly from each other, except when changes are introduced by the client. Cost planning also provides key stakeholders with an appreciation of the financial implications of differing design solutions and changes in requirements.
