Estimating and Cost Management

Simply stated, our goal is to work on your behalf to minimize risk and maximize the value of your project. We achieve this through a disciplined, proactive approach to cost management and an overarching dedication to effectively managing your project budget. We take pride in our reputation for delivering results that far exceed expectations, the proof of which rests in the continued trust bestowed on us by our valued clients.

CPM’s unique approach to cost management is designed to add significant value to our clients’ bottom lines; a relentless focus that is reflected in our group’s guiding principles:

Proactive Approach

We have a proven track record of saving our clients time and money, while preserving project quality through our proactive approach to cost management. We plan, control and manage project costs from inception through to successful completion.

Detailed Budgets

Our comprehensive budget estimates are based on well-researched cost data and contain a level of detail far more extensive than the “industry standard.” This ensures a realistic and accurate basis for the project and, when combined with our comprehensive cost control services, saves you from the embarrassment of budget overruns.

Continuous Involvement

As an integral part of the design process, our continuous and disciplined management of project costs results in timely, well-informed design and business decisions. This approach leads to the early identification of potential cost issues, which in turn reduces the delays and expenses associated with unnecessary redesign.

Value Management

You will benefit from our creative value management techniques. Our efforts help to assure program integrity, preserve design intent and eliminate unnecessary project costs.

Forward-looking Solutions

When it comes to managing project costs, nobody likes surprises. Unlike others, we don’t wait for the market to change; we accurately forecast market trends and advise our clients accordingly. Our continual analysis of productivity, material, labor, and micro and macro level market conditions ensure our budgets and estimates are comprehensive and accurate.

Comprehensive Services

We leverage the expertise of CPM’s Program Management and Dispute Resolution groups at every stage of the planning, design, and construction process. Our clients benefit from the holistic knowledge our team brings to their projects.
