Cost Reduction Consultants

Cost Consultancy

We offer our cost consultancy services to meet our clients' needs throughout the property and project lifecycles. We tailor our services to our clients' specific objectives and requirements, with a focus on adding value and managing risk.

Our approach

You may want our cost specialists embedded within your own team, helping to guide your capital planning and capital management tasks. You may need our specialists to perform an independent cost consulting role on a particular project, ensuring the monitoring of financial processes and performance. Or our specialists may be fully integrated in a project in development and performance. As the cost consultant, we take part in the execution of the entire project, from planning to the final account, with responsibility for financial reports as well. We have the right experience, provide a wide range of services and perform our activities to the highest standards.

Why Cushman & Wakefield?

We apply our extensive experience gained across sectors, clients and property types to deliver cost consultancy wherever the nature of the project or portfolio requires. Whether new build, fit-out or refurbishment, we combine data from Cushman & Wakefield’s global network with wider industry trends to generate our analysis based on cost benchmarking, which we can then apply to projects or portfolios.

When this cost consulting expertise is combined with Cushman & Wakefield’s wider services, we bring substantial know-how from portfolio strategy and capital planning to project delivery and whole life cost assessment. We offer cost management consultancy alongside our Project Development Services across Europe in coordination with our subsidiaries and our experts across the EMEA region.

The Investor's Guide to Hungary

Hungary is evolving. It remains a popular location for Shared Service Centres (SSC) and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) thanks to its multilingual talent pool, comparatively low costs, and lucrative governmental incentives. However, Hungary’s economy is diversifying, and the country is attracting a far greater variety of businesses than ever before.
