“Why pay for quantity surveying when I can save some money by figuring out the costs of a project myself?”
If there’s one question we get asked more than any other here at Bhangals, it’s that.
Here’s our answer:
Investing the support of a skilled and experienced professional construction consultant could actually save you even more money than if you avoided hiring them altogether.
Let us explain…
Yes, it’s true that if you didn’t pay for quantity surveying, you could save hundreds, if not thousands of pounds in the short term, but the true cost of what we do can’t be measured in its price tag alone.
Working with a team of qualified specialists, the long-term cost savings you’ll enjoy will add up to double what you originally spent, if not significantly more.
The end result?
Potential savings running into millions of pounds
How can we help you save far more on your construction project than you would ever spend on quantity surveying fees?
By combining unrivalled expertise with the invaluable industry knowledge that only comes from years of delivering exceptional results for our clients.
We know construction inside and out, which means that we know exactly where to look to generate the biggest savings. It also means that we never skip out on the small-yet-vital details that those with no quantity surveying experience typically overlook.
By doing so, we ensure you’re covered for every eventuality, meaning no nasty, expensive surprises once your project gets underway.
In our experience, the cost of unexpected problems are typically far more than the comparatively low cost of investing in quantity surveying, but that isn’t the only way that we can ensure huge savings on your next project.
Guaranteeing Maximum Value for Minimal Investment With Complete Quote Assessments
When you first venture out on your new construction project, how do you know that the quotes you receive from suppliers and contractors are accurate, fair, and in line with industry standards?
If the cases we’ve seen in the past are anything to go by, most people don’t. As a result, they end up paying more for quality materials, equipment and labour than they really need or, worse, sacrificing quality to save a few pounds in the early stages of a project.
The results are rarely pretty.
Paying over the odds only means losing out on money that you could have legitimately saved without compromising the quality of your project.
Meanwhile, the consequences of going ‘cheap’ are going to cost you just as much, if not more. As we mentioned in our recent article ‘How to Lose Money in the Construction Industry,’ it’s not uncommon for contractors to bid low to win the work, then begin making more work claims to up their profits. Opting for the cheapest option on materials is even worse, resulting in a poor quality development that is only going to cost more in the long-run for repairs, replacements, or even a complete overhaul.
As you can imagine, such costs can easily run into the tens and hundreds of thousands; a huge sum compared to the relatively low price of paying a construction consultant’s fees.
How Much Can I Save?
The overall savings you’ll enjoy from working with a qualified expert all depends on the size of the job at hand.
For smaller projects, you may initially only spend several hundred but ultimately save thousands. Alternatively, quantity surveying for a larger project could cost you several thousand in the short-term but generate millions of pounds in savings over the years.
As a typical guide, Bhangals Construction Consultants are confident that on every project, we can save our clients at least double the price of our fees. In the majority of cases, however, this is significantly more.
