Budget and Cost Estimating
Before any project begins, questions similar to the ones below are carefully contemplated.
Is it the lowest first-cost structure that meets the program?
Is it the design with the lowest operating and maintenance costs?
Is it the building with the longest life span?
Is it the facility in which users are most productive?
Is it the building that offers the greatest return on investment?
While an economically efficient project is likely to have one or more of these attributes, it is impossible to summarize cost-effectiveness by a single parameter. Determining true cost-effectiveness requires a life-cycle perspective where all costs and benefits of a given project are evaluated and compared over its economic life.
In every project there is a careful balance between program and budget. Our project manual is a template perfected over designing and construction of hundreds of projects.
M.Arch Architects provides accurate cost estimation services from the earliest stages of your project. Estimations are based on BIM accuracy isolating errors in construction feasibility. Our methods reduce redundancy and consequently numerous extra costs. Our services include cost estimation, 4D scheduling, 5D cost estimation, clash detection, value engineering, and bidding and negotiation.
