Quantity Surveying

HMG Associates by incorporating a Quantity Surveying Division in conjunction with their Architectural Division, establish cost budgets at a very early stage in the Design process. This enables Design and Budget to be considered in parallel in any decision making.

Quantity surveyors provide cost management and cost control skills to the design team. In a partnership approach, this enables the design team to produce the most suitable building in meeting the client's brief and staying within budget.

Additional fees for this cost consultant are much less significant than the savings that can be achieved by utilising this skill and expertise in controlling costs at all stages of construction.
