Cost Management is the core of what we do. Cost Management is about defining and managing costs, and coupled with defining and managing risks, will deliver real savings and add value at all stages of the project lifecycle. At Maltbys we help deliver effective, cost efficient and wherever possible, sustainable design solutions, which realize the key objectives for our Clients to the approved budget.
From the critical initial feasibility stage of a project right through to its completion, we provide rigorous, reliable and comprehensive cost advice on all aspects of the project which enable our Clients to make informed decisions along the way. A list of our specific Cost Management services is shown below, and is divided between Pre-Contract and Post-Contract services:-
The role and skill of the Quantity Surveyor lends itself particularly well to act in the role of “Engineer to the Contract (ETC)” or “Principal’s Representative” under the NZS3910; 3915 & 3916 forms of contract. The Engineer has a dual role in the administration of the contract, both as an expert advisor to and representative of the Principal, together with, and independently of each party, to fairly and impartially make the decisions entrusted to him/her under the contract. At Maltbys our most senior staff have the necessary experience, technical skills, contractual knowledge, industry mana and soft skills to successfully undertake this key role and help ensure the smooth and collaborative delivery of every project.
Maltbys will deliver a reliable, independent and realistic evaluation of all of the component parts of a project for the project funder. Maltbys will provide a comprehensive review of the project from inception to completion, helping manage risk by independently maximising the predictability of time and final cost.
