Tendering, estimating and procurement
The opportunity cost of tendering is great and therefore getting it right is invaluable. We have a strong understanding of the market and the required pricing levels to achieve successful tenders.
We have successfully worked with employers in re-tendering their frameworks and project works, both large and small, across different sectors.
We have also worked closely with national and main contractors as a key part of their bid teams to assist with the pricing of the tenders and participation at competitive dialogue sessions.
Cost planning and estimating
Utilising our widespread knowledge base, we are able to offer a variety of cost planning and estimating services from new build-through to office fit-out and high street retail refurbishment.
Cost planning can forecast the likely expenditure of a project and ensure that value for money is being achieved. It provides clients with the information to enable projects to go ahead, with the certainty provided by financial and commercial security.
Estimating is the evaluation of a project, based upon a scope of works. There are a variety of ways in which estimating can be undertaken and we are experienced in these different methods to suit the needs of a specific project or client requirement.
Cost planning and estimating will take into account regional variations, local market conditions and reflect the variety of specialised sectors from hospitals to supermarkets, interior design to shopfitting, social housing to offices.
We can provide cost planning and estimating services for client representatives, main contractors or sub-contractors. We are also in a position to directly represent the client. From cost planning to estimating, we provide a complete service.
In all market conditions it is imperative to have a robust and extensive procurement strategy that provides value for money, risk minimisation, good commerciality and meets the expectations of all parties.
The procurement process is not limited to the contract award stage and we understand the commercial and operational demands needed to achieve internal and external targets.
We have a team of experienced and dedicated professionals who have successfully delivered a range of procurement programmes including national contractor tendering, subcontractor engagement and tender pricing strategies.
