Fourie Consultants is a recognized construction consulting firm that provides construction estimating consultant services. Being specialist construction cost consultants allows them to extract the best value for their client and project team through design and development.
In 2021, the rising material and labor costs have canceled various construction projects worldwide. However, Rick Fourie of Fourie Consultants believes there will be a boom in new commercial real estate development in 2022.
Because there are still rising costs in such things as steel and lumber, in 2022, developers will need to pay extra attention to their numbers and ensure that they can still be profitable.
This exact situation is where guidance from a construction consultant can help. It demands a professional team to design a building that meets project requirements and bids on budget. Fourie Consultants sets itself apart from other construction consulting firms with its accuracy, attention to detail, and ability to resolve cost issues early in the design process to minimize cost-mandated redesign.
As a developer, your project needs a construction estimating consultant who not only has in-depth cost management knowledge but who can efficiently combine and bring that expertise to a creative design team.
The unique and practical approach that Fourie Consultants take is the marriage of three disciplines; construction cost consulting, estimating, and value engineering. They utilize their experience to deliver the best bid results for their clients while streamlining the design and construction process.
Because 2022 will be a year that reflects the landscape of our current economy, it’s crucial to determine construction costs to the penny.
Ultimately, subcontractor bids determine construction costs. Fourie Consultants does not rely upon historic databases or cost indexes. Instead, they conduct an independent subcontractor outreach and education campaign specifically for their client’s project. Their process provides the design team with current project-specific pricing and local construction means and methods. Their strategy improves subcontractor coverage, saving the client millions of dollars in the bid room.
The best bid results come from competitive bids between educated and engaged subcontractors on a well-coordinated bid document set designed to a realistic budget by a cost-informed design team.
With the help of a construction management consultant, Rick Fourie sees 2022 being a big year for the real estate development industry.
