Project & Development Services Project & Development Services


Property Cost Consultancy

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

Our approach

You may want to include cost experts in your planning team to help you manage your capital planning and capital management processes. Or, you may wish us to perform independent cost consulting for a particular project in order to provide an objective overview of the financial situation and performance of the project. Or, you may need cost specialists to be fully integrated within a project team as a partner in development and delivery. As professional cost consultants, we are responsible for the financial health and commercial reporting of your projects, from the initial idea down to final billing. We have the experience, the range of services and the necessary skills to perform each of these tasks to the highest standards.

Why Cushman & Wakefield?

We apply our extensive experience across sectors, clients and property types to provide advice and cost management for your property exactly there where your project or portfolio needs it. Whether it's a new build, fit-out or refurbishment, we combine data from Cushman & Wakefield’s global network with wider industry trends to act as an informed thought leader. Our specialists generate cost benchmarks, the results of which we then apply purposefully to projects or portfolios, providing our clients with insightful, market-leading advice.

Combined with Cushman & Wakefield’s wider services, this expertise offers a crucial advantage in that we bring our cost consulting expertise to every stage of your project – from portfolio strategy and capital planning to project delivery and assessment of the overall costs. We offer professional real estate cost management along with our broader PDS services throughout the UK and Europe, as well as in coordination with a larger network of subsidiaries and third parties across the entire EMEA region.
