Cost Planning & Full-Life Costing
From the earliest conceptual budget, through to detailed estimates on fully designed documents, AXIOM works closely with your entire project team to ensure that design decisions are made with full knowledge of related capital and operating costs; thus ensuring that your project meets budget expectations and maximises value for money throughout the life of the building.
Throughout the design development process AXIOM works with the project team to evaluate the costs and benefits of alternative design solutions to ensure that systems, materials and methods are selected that best meet the design and function criteria for the lowest cost; thus ensuring that costs are minimized without unnecessarily sacrificing design or function.
Procurement & Contractual Advice
With extensive knowledge and practical experience with tendering and procurement, AXIOM can provide valuable advice to your project team on critical procurement and contractual questions such as: “What type of contract structure is most appropriate for my project and what are the benefits and risks of the various options?”
Post-Contract Cost Monitoring & Management
Cost management does not end once the contractor has been procured. In fact, at this point the bulk of the cost management work has only just begun. AXIOM has the expertise to help manage your costs from the first conceptual sketch, right though to total completion and move-in. Engaging AXIOM to help monitor costs, review change orders, review invoices and analyze claims will help ensure that your project’s budget keeps on track.
Claims Support & Dispute Resolution
Even the best managed projects can experience – what may seem like – irresolvable disputes. AXIOM has the experience and expertise to assist with resolution of even the most complex disputes. Our expertise can help resolve disputes as an independent, third-party. Or, if necessary our expertise and professional qualifications can be leveraged as a compelling expert witness in arbitration or other legal proceedings.
