Johnstaff's Cost Management professionals provide cost advice at the strategic end of the investment planning curve to enable organisations to make informed business investment decisions.

We provide strategic planning and feasibility stage cost advice aimed at providing value for money for your planned capital and operating expenditure and safeguarding your commercial position. We facilitate client decisions by considering likely capital and recurrent costs, risk profiles, timelines and quality outcomes across all available procurement options.

As distinct from a standard quantity surveying service focused on capital developments, we provide tailored cost advice across a wide range of social and economic infrastructure initiatives.

Our Cost Management service was designed to be complementary to our other service offerings. Our Cost Managers are able to provide specialist advice to our Advisory, Project Management and Construction Services teams in the development of feasibility studies and business cases and in peer reviewing cost plans and assessments from other Quantity Surveyors. We develop detailed cost estimates and trade breakdowns where Johnstaff takes on the role of Construction Manager or Building Contractor for our clients.

You can have confidence in our advice as all our Cost Managers are highly experienced senior accredited practitioners.

While we specialise in providing cost advice at the strategic end of the investment planning curve, our Cost Management offering includes services across the full project life cycle including:

  • concept and feasibility cost estimating
  • life-cycle costing
  • benchmarking advice
  • due diligence and third-party independent cost reviews
  • financial certification
  • cost modelling and options analysis, including delivery and procurement options
  • variation claim analysis and negotiation
  • value management and risk management
  • project cost estimating, monitoring and reporting
  • tender analysis and review
  • cash-flow projections
  • earned value analysis
