CONSTRUCTION COST MANAGEMENT
“OUR SCHEDULE OF WORK SERVICES CONTROL THE CONSTRUCTION COST BEFORE THE PROJECT STARTS AND ENABLES THE CLIENT TO COMPARE PRICING EASILY.”
A common issue with comparing quotes from various builders without a detailed Schedule of Work spreadsheet is that each builder will be pricing the job in their own pricing format. This means the client has many different quotes with no way of comparing like for like. This often leads to different assumptions, quantities and ultimately variations during the build. Our Schedule of Work pricing documents break down all elements of the build. The builders price each line item so comparing tenders is extremely easy and ensures nothing is missed.
The second advantage to the Schedule of Works is that we can check the costs and work with the builders to reduce certain prices or recommend different products/specification. This helps to reduce the overall build sum.
Once costs are agreed the Schedule of Works is then used as a reference document throughout the build when requests are made for payment by the builder. Work stages can be checked against progress and payments made to represent what has been done to avoid the client from over paying.
“We used the extremely detailed specification provided to go out to tender for the building project. This gave us control over the budget and enabled us to compare quotes easily.”
