Witteveen+Bos has extensive experience in monitoring and controlling construction costs on complex projects. Ideally, our involvement will begin at the earliest planning phase so that maximum value can be derived from the available budget. We work with extremely accurate cost databases which are the product of many years’ experience in monitoring international construction costs.
Sound scientific research
We apply the Life Cycle Costing approach, and we always produce an estimate of the project’s CO2 footprint. Value Engineering procedures applied during the design process ensure that the chosen solutions will remain cost-effective and sustainable throughout the life cycle of the end product. We are also highly experienced in project management, including that of extremely complex projects such as the North/South metro line in Amsterdam or the Oosterweel Link in Antwerp. The methods we apply are based on sound scientific research, much of which was conducted in house.
By linking the various information flows such as client requirements, system requirements, planning, risks and phasing, we provide a realtime overview of project progress with regard to the standard criteria of cost, time, quality and client satisfaction. This greatly reduces the risk of errors and simplifies verification and validation. We have provided information management services in various complex projects at home and abroad.
Witteveen+Bos can also provide full support in the production of tender documents such as the Programme of Requirements. We are familiar with the use of various contract forms, including D&C and DBFM, which can be produced according to national standards or those of international bodies such as the FIDIC. We undertake full contract management on behalf of our clients, as in the case of the North/South metro line in Amsterdam.
