Cost Management

I.V.A.S provide investment and financing services across all areas of construction and residential development, including procurement and contracting models. We provide cost planning, control and consultancy services from pre-contract to post-contract, including feasibility studies and investment appraisals. Managing costs from inception through to lifecycle costs and complex PPP and PFI investment arrangements, we ensure our client’s development accuracy and financial awareness is maintained and value for money delivered.

As professionals, we understand the financial risks capital investments attract for both private and public sector stakeholders. We work closely with developers and investors to drive financial efficiency, identifying project risks at the outset and keeping these live and managed throughout the process to handover.

We operate in a proactive and collaborative way. Actively challenging the norm and championing change, we promote processes, protocols and high performing teams; the industry’s refusal to embrace modern methods of construction and off-site manufacturing is not an approach we support. We manage each project through the eyes of the client, aligning project costs to development targets and objectives.
