Cost Management

Cost Management

BACE have built their whole philosophy on the need to provide solid management and cost advice to clients and other professional consultants throughout all stages of a commission to ensure that projects are delivered both on time and budget.  Our cost management processes enable us to manage the budget requirements and anticipated costs from inception to completion through cost control procedures geared to proactively “manage” not just reactively record or monitor costs ultimately to maximise the return on investment for our clients. 

We operate a proven, well managed process which calls for continuously checking procedures, ensuring that all elements of works are captured correctly from the budgeting phase, to completion of the project with each stage of the process identifying cost risk items that need to be addressed prior to the next one starting.

Being involved from the start of the project enables us to manage this process and provide a solid budget that meets the client’s requirements which is both achievable and deliverable.  We understand that every Client and project is different and by understanding the goals our reports are tailored to meet the specific requirements of the client brief that has real benefits to them when reporting to their clients, funders and stakeholders.
