Cost Planning and Procurement

Often cost planning takes place against a design already sold to a client. This may lead to disappointment from “value engineering”, poor procurement or quality.

Cost planning at design stage ensures a cost plan integral to the design. Harness our knowledge to guarantee informed decisions in planning and procurement.

A clear, appropriate procurement strategy is essential when delivering a complex construction project. Accurate identification of risk and apportionment to the right teams for effective control is crucial. Manage project risks with HDP to achieve your project goals.

Bills of Quantities provide the most transparent and level playing-field in competitive tenders. We can help you produce and review Bills of Quantities under any recognised method.

Take advantage of our expertise in cost planning and procurement strategy:

  • Develop an appropriate procurement strategy
  • Identify risks and ensure effective apportionment
  • Prepare and review your Bills of Quantities

Cost Management

Whatever the cause of change on a project, our professionals understand the importance of good cost management advice.

We’ll give you management information to make effective proactive decisions. Shifts in cash flow forecasts also help identify delays to the construction programme. Let us help you identify and manage cost risks efficiently.

Our team can provide you with sensible and practical advice:

  • Accurate budget monitoring
  • Make informed proactive decisions
  • Identify issues or delays early
  • Take action to mitigate risk

Final Account Preparation

Final account resolution can become protracted. This is particularly true where contract variations or extensions of time aren't agreed as the construction project progresses.

The process can become analytical. Problems increase when project staff are no longer available to explain events.

Let us help you negotiate final accounts to preserve and enhance commercial relationships.

Let our team analyse and negotiate your final accounts:

  • Let us advise you on your position
  • Enter negotiations with accurate information
  • Get faster and cost-effective settlements
  • Analyse variations and extension of time claims
  • Avoid and manage disputes

Bank and Fund Monitoring

Banks and project funders need to have certainty their investment in construction or engineering is being well managed. We can structure a reporting system to meet funders’ requirements.

Allow us to structure a reporting system to meet your requirements. We’ll capture key performance indicators and risks. We can report in any required format, highlighting divergence from the planned works.
