Quantity Surveying & Cost Consultancy

Controlling cost is a major component of Construction Project Management; this provision addresses the activities undertaken by PMG to control expenditure and to obtain the best value for money on major building and civil Engineering investments.

PMG provides complete cost planning and cost control services to protect the Client’s financial interests, and to ensure project completion on budget.

Our Quantity Surveyors are specialized in becoming integral members of the project team, ensuring that cost control is an active and dynamic process that manages, controls, and anticipates Construction costs. The approach taken is based on best value principles that ensure the emphasis of our service is on understanding and achieving the Client’s objectives.

We actively promote the latest developments in procurement and the changing culture in the industry. We continually build on traditional principles and methods, and best practices established by leading Quantity Surveying companies around the world. But what makes us really competitive in this field is our extensive local experience that allows us to foresee possible costs and uncover any issues that would influence cost planning, better than our international counterparts.

PMG protective Quantity Surveying services include: Estimating & Cost Planning, Tender Procurement, Contract Advice & Documentation, Cost Control & Monitoring, and Contract Administration, Valuation & Final Account.
These services are offered throughout the project life cycle starting from feasibility phase through to final account preparation and agreement.
