Elev8's accurate "cost-to-scope" benchmarks provided through our independent estimating, enables our Clients to determine market accuracy and facilitate prudent financial decisions. Our front-end cost development services include full scope cost modeling, estimating, and value engineering services. If estimates have already been preformed, Elev8 can provide independent peer reviews utilizing comparative and detailed analyses. These estimates can be programmatic and conceptual, serve as check estimates as the design progresses, or as a final check prior to soliciting bids for work.
Estimating and Value Engineering
Sound financial decisions are based on fact, not subjective opinions, and decisions made during the early design phases typically commit 80% of the project budget. Therefore, developing a realistic foundation for the project budget is critical to project success. Additionally, unforeseen market forces can wreak havoc on budget or ROI projections, warranting rapid re-evaluation of project approach or composition.
