Cost Consultants

At Airey Miller we are committed to providing maximum value for money and cost efficiencies, without compromising on quality. To do this effectively we manage risk rigorously to mitigate or eliminate it, and understand and manage its effect on cost.

Our experience and knowledge provides invaluable advice towards procurement, and the delivery of contracts where risk requires to be appropriately and commercially placed in all contract documentation.

This service is supported by our access to the supply chain, and enables the checking and testing of prices, greater accuracy in cost planning and estimates. We can also better examine tender returns, analysing especially where pricing is inconsistent or inadequate.

Our expert team are fully focused on whole life and lifecycle costs, and have complete understanding of how long-term asset management can be a key client objective. This is why we apply value engineering from the outset to provide clients with maximum return on investment, not simply to cut costs.

A key role for our cost consultancy service is to add value in particular to GDV by working with our own design managers using their expertise in this area.
