Cost Consultancy

We offer a comprehensive range of cost consultancy and cost optimisation services throughout the lifecycle of your buildings and projects. 

We tailor these services to your specific objectives and requirements, with a focus on adding value and managing risk at every stage of your project.

Our approach

You may want cost specialists as part of your own programme team, helping you optimise your management and budget planning processes. Or you may wish us to perform an independent and objective analysis of budgets and costs in order to get the greatest return out of your projects. Or perhaps you 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 start of your project up 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 the extensive experience we have gained in the various areas of activity of our clients and all types of properties to design and implement construction cost and cost-saving services wherever your project or portfolio require it. Whether new build, fit-out or refurbishment, we combine data from our global network with wider industry trends to generate cost baselines applicable to your projects or portfolios, allowing us to provide you with more advanced, market-leading advice.

When this expertise is combined with Cushman & Wakefield’s wider services, we offer you real added value, advising you on cost optimisation at every stage of your project – from portfolio strategy and capital planning to project delivery and whole life cost assessment. We offer cost management alongside our wider PDS services throughout France, the UK and continental Europe, and in coordination with a wider network of affiliates and third parties across the wider EMEA region.
