We seek to minimise the costs of the project and to enhance value for money whilst achieving the required design, standards and quality management. Our Consultant Quantity Surveyor service include feasibility studies, bills of quantities and cost control - measuring and valuing contract works and variations, reconciling cost against value, preparing or checking, contractor valuations and final accounts and forecasting cost to complete.
Frequently the QS (quantity surveying) function is provided to Clients either involved in large scale projects, who require a professional to work alongside the appointed Contract Administrator in valuing work progress and cost change, or by Clients involved in smaller projects that wish for someone to check valuations and variations submitted by Contractors. In both cases this service is provided automatically if we are acting as Contract Administrator.
We also act as independent advisors for Financial Institutions (often for small developer or self-build schemes), providing funding reports, cost assessments, stage costing and programming reports and validating valuations and drawdown requests.
We were very pleased with the service received from Whitebeam. During our project Dan created the initial cost estimate before we went to tender and ran the contract through to final payment sign off. Throughout the project Whitebeam were professional and paid excellent attention to detail, without which we would have found it hard to remain within budget and finish on time. Regular meetings kept track of variations, the programme plan and checked specifications & quality of work and gave us peace of mind.
