Production of budget cost estimates is a vital part of ensuring that a proposed project remains within the constraints of available funding. Hookway can produce budget cost estimates from a variety of different levels of information, including initial sketches through to more detailed proposals.

We can suggest programme guidelines for a project as well as highlight potential risks, recommend a suitable procurement strategy and suggest areas that may deliver additional value to the project and therefore the client. Cost planning should be undertaken throughout the design process in order to keep a firm control of the capital cost. By providing cost estimates, in a recognised, methodical manner, we can help all members of the team make timely and informed decisions on all the aspects of design and specification, thus ensuring that the best value for money options are presented to the client.

Testimonial

“The whole project was entirely ‘self-sufficient’ as far as the school leaders were concerned, apart from pre-agreed meetings/decisions along the way, and the building was completed to a very high spec in a safe and efficient way. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hookway to other schools.”
