Cost Consultancy

We offer a comprehensive range of cost consultancy services to meet your needs throughout the building and project lifecycles.

Our approach

You may want cost specialists embedded within your own programme team, helping to guide your capital planning and management processes. Or, you may wish us to perform an independent cost consulting role on a particular project, providing an objective view of financial health and performance. Or, you may need cost specialists to be fully integrated within a project team as a partner in development and delivery. As the cost consultant for 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, range of services and capability to perform each of these to the highest standards.

Why Cushman & Wakefield?

We apply our extensive experience across sectors, clients and property types to shape and deliver cost consultancy wherever your project or portfolio require. Whether new build, fit out or refurbishment, we combine data from Cushman & Wakefield’s global network with wider industry trends to generate informed thought leadership and cost benchmarking, which we can then apply to projects or portfolios and to provide our clients with insightful, market-leading advice.

When this expertise is combined with Cushman & Wakefield’s wider services, we offer a distinctive advantage, bringing cost consulting expertise to every stage from portfolio strategy and capital planning to project delivery and whole life cost assessment. We offer cost management alongside our wider PDS services throughout the UK, across Europe and in coordination with a wider network of affiliates and third parties across the wider EMEA region.
