How we help
We assess, monitor and manage project and lifecycle costs, to establish a project’s financial viability and provide our clients with greater cost certainty.
This includes the application of tools and processes that consider the overall development cost and not just the capital applied to the construction of a building or asset. This allows a broader view of the cost drivers behind the investment.
We apply an evidence-based approach to estimating and cost planning utilising our vast cost library developed over many years of experience.
How we are different?
Our cost control cycle repeats itself as it moves through each phase. This ensures the management of cost evolves in tandem with the scope of the project. This is supported by a structured cost reporting system focused on providing a real-time assessment of the forecast final cost of each project.
Importantly, we can “track” the cost of each project against the Business Case inclusive of all capital and operating expenditure.

ASB Theatre Aotea Centre
Upgrading the ASB Theatre auditorium had been planned for some time, with the funding for the refurbishment written into the former Auckland City Council’s Long-Term Council Community Plan. To maximise a restricted programme window, the project was split into two stages.
