Early engagement of the Black Cat Team can help build cost efficiency and value for money into the project from the design stage. We work with our clients to understand their aspirations and constraints and can advise on opportunities to achieve the former and reduce the latter.
We provide the following services:

We work closely as an extension to our client’s own team throughout the project to manage cost, from setting budget estimates through to procuring contractors and negotiating final costs.
We work with our clients to understand their aspirations and constraints
We do not see cost management as just a reporting function, we are actively involved in the design and implementation of the project and constantly seek to ensure the client gets value for money.
Our experience in a variety of project types allows us to advise on more cost effective solutions which do not adversely affect the quality of the finished article. Irrespective of project size we can tailor our cost consultancy service to suit you.
