The Pre Contract Stage

From the inception of a project we can advise clients on project feasibility, viability and drawing on our market intelligence, knowledge of current market costs and trends, provide budget cost information to inform clients’ strategic decision making processes.

We can produce detailed elemental cost plans for projects and take the lead within design teams to drive efficiencies and economies within a developing design. It is our aim to deliver best value at all stages of a construction project life cycle. Opal Consult are able to advise on the most appropriate procurement routes for projects to suit clients’ risk profiles and prevailing market conditions. Selection of appropriate contractors, interviewing contractors and taking part in the pre-qualification and shortlisting process is within our service offering.

Through the design development stage, Opal Consult will work with other design disciplines. With our experience in the economics of efficient building design we are able to offer value engineering solutions to drive best value and ultimately save the client money through all stages of the project.

We have extensive experience in the negotiation of contract sums, production of contract documents and we are able to bring the contracting parties together in an amicable manner with risk apportioned fairly and appropriately.
