Cost Reduction Consultancy

We offer a comprehensive range of cost consultancy services to meet your needs throughout the building and project lifecycles. We’ll tailor these services to your specific objectives and requirements and focus on adding value and managing risk at every stage of your project.

Our approach

As cost specialists operating within your own programme team, we can help to guide your capital planning and management processes. As external, independent cost consultants, we can provide an objective view of financial health and performance for a specific project. Or, you may want us to act as a partner in development and delivery of a project, fully integrated within your team. As cost consultants within a project, we’ll be responsible for the financial health and commercial reporting – from the outset to the closing out of the final account. We have the experience and competencies to perform each of these services to the highest standards.

Why Cushman & Wakefield?

We develop customised cost consultancy based on your project or portfolio. We do this by leveraging our extensive expertise that is based on partnerships within numerous sectors and various ownership types. Whether new build, fit-out or refurbishment, we combine data from Cushman & Wakefield’s global network with wider industry trends. This enables us to develop an overarching vision and well-founded cost benchmarks. You enjoy advice that really makes a difference for your portfolio or project.

That gives you a definite advantage. When this expertise is combined with Cushman & Wakefield’s wider services, we can offer cost consultancy in every stage of your planning – from portfolio strategy and capital planning to project delivery and whole life cost assessment. We offer cost management alongside our wider PDS services in Europe, in coordination with a wider network of affiliates and third parties across the wider EMEA region.
