The quantity surveying specialists at SYSTRA take charge of cost forecasting and management from beginning to end of construction and engineering projects on any scale – enabling clients to deliver successful infrastructure programmes within budget.

Adding value through accurate cost control

Controlling costs and risks is critical to the success of any major construction or infrastructure development project. Project owners and developers need to understand the cost implications of every decision they make, from initial planning and feasibility through to on-site construction and ongoing maintenance.

It’s essential to accurately forecast costs from the outset, to determine the scope of the project and calculate what can be delivered for a given budget. Throughout the project, costs need to be monitored so that plans can be adapted quickly in the event of unforeseen circumstances, such as an increase in material costs or delays on site. Cost management is the responsibility of quantity surveyors, who also need to build lifetime costs into their forecasts, taking into account the adaptations required for climate change or emerging technologies.

SYSTRA has a team of experienced and highly qualified quantity surveyors who help clients plan and manage their budgets on complex infrastructure projects in the transport, energy, environmental and urban-development sectors.
