Realise value

Our Cost Manager will help you to plan and control your project’s budget, enabling you to mitigate risk and realise value.

Drawing from years of experience, we have a dynamic approach to cost management that challenges assumptions and empowers you to use our cost advice to make informed choices. Your projects will benefit from the latest developments in Building Information Management (BIM) and cost management software (CostX) to find the most effective way to build, manage cost and identify risks and clashes in design before they occur.

We pride ourselves on building strong relationships — getting to the core of your business to ensure the process is always a collaborative one that meets your objectives and ethos. With decades of experience, we’ve supported clients across the widest range of sectors, including residential, commercial, health, education, conservation, ecclesiastical and industrial schemes. Our flexible style of cost management and wealth of experience offers you the highest degree of certainty at an early stage in the design and construction process.

We understand how to meet renewable energy targets and have extensive experience in cost-effective and sustainable construction techniques. We understand the need to establish capital and revenue costs to ensure that the whole life of the building and its sustainability are considered; offering you a building fit for the future, not just for today.

We diligently analyse the degree of project risk, enabling us to instigate systems that monitor and reduce, or eliminate risk. This guarantees every MacConvilles project is established on sound footing before our clients start on site.

Our extensive knowledge of local and national markets enables us to benchmark all facets of the construction process to achieve value for money. In addition, at every stage of the project, we measure the project’s such against Key Performance Indicators to deliver continuous improvement.

Understanding the cost of rebuilding a property in the event of a major incident is essential when putting in place the right insurance plan.
