Design & Build
We manage the budgets of our clients' operations by developing the appropriate tools and methods for each of your projects.
During a renovation or (re)development, the last thing you want to encounter is financial worries. Our cost managers can take that burden off your shoulders. Once you have determined your requirements, we calculate the financial implications of your plans using our benchmark database. In close collaboration with our project managers, we then look for the suppliers and contractors who are best suited to your project. And if the costs take a different turn as the project progresses? No problem! We will not only keep you informed of all the latest developments but will also help you make the best possible decision with the right advice and insights.
At CBRE we believe in taking an integral approach to projects. To offer you the most accurate cost advice on your project, our cost managers therefore work closely with the project managers and designers. This enables us to stay fully informed of key developments as they arise, in the lead-up and throughout the project. So that you will be too!
Smart and clear insights
To make all the necessary calculations for your plans, we use the CostX tool. This advanced software brings together all our expertise and relevant project benchmarks, thereby offering you a high degree of cost certainty. In addition, you will always have real-time insight into the finances of your project thanks to the Onventis tool. At all stages of the project – from the preparatory phase to full completion – this gives you the accurate information you need.
