Optimorph was appointed as Quantity Surveyors and Contract Administrators providing a detailed cost plan for the project, tender documentation and management of the tender action, selection and appointment of the main contractor, cost reporting, administration of the Contract and agreement of the Final Account. The client had a fixed amount of funding and as the project progressed and the nature of the existing old building became apparent Optimorph worked closely with the client and provided up to date cost reporting to enable the client to make commercial decisions about fit and finish to ensure that they remained within their budget constraints. The project was completed on time and within the client's financial constraints as a result.

Our client said:

"The best decision I made was to appoint Optimorph for this project. I instructed Optimorph as a cost consultant and contract administrator. The expertise and service was very professional. Optimorph always advised me of the consequences of my decisions on issues that arose during the construction and advised on the associated costs. It was reassuring to have Optimorph on board from the outset and I believe it delivered tangible benefits and cost savings to the project. I was very pleased with the outcome and service".
