What We Do

Our team provide construction cost advice and quantity surveying services from inception through to completion, ensuring your project is delivered with the highest level of cost certainty and value for money possible.

Working closely with our clients, we manage our quantity surveying and pricing services through a series of gateways; proactively controlling forecast cost and expenditure against budgets to completion. As projects evolve, we maintain regular communication and transparent cost advice. This open relationship will give you the confidence that we are driving your project forward and achieving cost targets whilst managing threats and changes. Detailed value engineering exercises will be undertaken to guarantee best value.

We can adapt the services we provide to suit your needs and budgets. Our services cover both JCT and NEC contracts, and single and two-stage tendering. The team hold significant experience in a range of sectors, framework types, and procurement routes. Using our knowledge and experience, we will ensure the most effective tender process is chosen for each individual project.

Our Quantity Surveying services include:

Agreeing Final Accounts for Main Contractors and Sub-Contractors

We will analyse accounts and ensure any variations have been agreed in accordance with the contract.

Building Costs and Economic Guidance

Using cost databases and market knowledge, we can provide you with reliable updated cost information and advise you on changes within the market.

Cash Flow Forecasting

Our team can help you manage your cash flows to ensure funding streams are in line with your cash flow forecasts.

Cost Control and Risk Management

Providing you with monthly cost updates, predicted final accounts, and notifications of changes to the Risk Register, will ensure you are updated throughout your project.

Cost Planning

In-depth costs can be reviewed on elemental or detailed cost plans.

Development Appraisals

Our team can help you appraise the site of your proposed development to determine whether your vision is possible.

Estimating/Budgeting Services

Cost estimates and cost plans will be produced throughout the life cycle of your project.

Feasibility Studies and Business Case Appraisal

In addition to assisting with the plan for your site, we can provide advice for your business case. This will allow you to decide whether the project will be beneficial.

Measurement Services

Our Quantity Surveyors can measure internal and external elements of a building or site.

Producing Pricing Documentation

Our team can provide a variety of pricing documents for your scheme, including both NRM and SMM7 bills of quantities, schedules of work, and Contract Sum Analysis (CSA) forms.

Public Sector Procurement Compliance Advice

We utilise the e-notification service, Find a Tender (FTS), or selected frameworks, to make sure our public sector clients are complying with the required regulations to procure projects without any issues.

Support with Funding Options

Our support with Heritage Lottery Funding and NHS Funding processes is available. We can help analyse costs to enable the relevant information to be provided when supporting funding bids.

Tender Process

This includes advice on selecting the building contract and procurement strategies that are right for your project. The team understand the benefits of both JCT and NEC contracts, and are experienced in single and two-stage procurement. We can also provide advice for frameworks. In addition, our team can provide tender documents, support the tender process, analyse tender returns to aid contractor selection, and where necessary negotiate the contract sum and raise the contract documents required to proceed to construction.

Value Engineering

We can help the Design team look at ways to make buildings more cost-effective. The advice we provide you with will enable you to make informed decisions.

Valuations and Cost Certificates

Our teams can carry out site valuations and assessment of applications and variations, providing remeasurement services or ensuring the required substantiation has been provided. The necessary payment documents will be completed to comply with contractual duties and within the required timescales.

Testimonial

“The Bills of Quantities were delivered complete, on time, and to an excellent standard. With Concertus providing a multi-disciplinary consultancy service on this project, the added benefit was the Quantity Surveyors could liaise directly with the designers to iron out any discrepancies prior to issuing the Bills. We also found the Quantity Surveying team very responsive when queries were raised, proactive and user-friendly. We look forward to working with them on future projects.”
