Only a holistic view of needs, programmes and budgets enables the best approach for satisfying requirements to be developed.
GUARANTEED MAXIMUM PRICE
Close cooperation with the general contractor optimises cost effectiveness.
The general contractor’s know-how and experience with regard to costs, scheduling, and execution enable itemization of project data from the preliminary planning phase onwards, permitting a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) to be set.
LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENT
Effective utilisation of floor space, improvement of building quality through space organisation, technical functions, communication, and appearance, the reduction of operating costs and strategies for maintaining the value of building stock are all components in an integrated planning approach.
If costs in large projects are to be minimised, cost planning, coordination, cost control, the search for economic alternatives, and cost documentation are essential.
Scheduling plays a crucial role in attaining cost targets. Keeping to the deadlines set decides whether a project remains within the planned cost framework; scheduling and compliance with deadlines are prerequisite to successful property investment.
