Consultancy Services

In addition to our core services of Cost Management and Procurement, ANA offer a range of complementary consultancy services, providing our clients with a comprehensive range of professional services. We offer independent, clear and concise advice to clients, to assist them in the efficient delivery of their projects and to help them achieve the best value for money.

Project Monitoring

We provide an independent project monitoring service. We meticulously scrutinise every aspect of your project. This entails a thorough examination of tender documents and contract information, on-site visits, and an assessment of claimed amounts against the actual value of completed work. Beyond cost evaluation, our comprehensive review extends to the programme, cash flow projections, and the identification of potential project risks. Our findings are accompanied by appropriate recommendations to address and mitigate any identified issues.

Reinstatement Valuations

A property reinstatement valuation assesses the cost of restoring a property to its original condition in the event of complete destruction. It's essential to emphasise that the property's value and its reinstatement valuation are entirely independent of each other. As part of our reinstatement valuation service, we conduct on-site visits, measure building floor areas using existing floor plans, and calculate the reinstatement cost. These costs are tailored to each project, drawing on our extensive experience and in-house cost information database. Our expertise in preparing building reinstatement valuations spans various sectors, including commercial, industrial, and residential properties. Regularly checking reinstatement valuations is crucial to ensure accurate insurance coverage, guarding against both over, and under, insurance.

Developer Services

ANA delivers specialised and customised cost management services for developers, aiming to enhance profitability and minimise risk through the following:

  1. Feasibility Studies: At the project’s initiation, we conduct a comprehensive feasibility analysis, detailing all costs associated with development, including land, construction, finance, administration, fees, charges, and marketing. This assessment provides a holistic view of the project, comparing costs with projected income to evaluate the overall profit potential.

  2. Detailed Budgets: Building on the feasibility study, we create detailed budgets as the design progresses, ensuring proactive management and control of costs during the development phase. These budgets are categorised into labour, material, plant, and subcontract budgets as per the client’s requirements for the upcoming stages.

  3. Tender Packages: Upon completing the design and detailed budgets, we compile tender packages for competitive bidding. These packages undergo a thorough comparison with our detailed budget to manage costs effectively. Subcontractors are then enlisted through standard subcontract agreements.

Our developer services are tailored to each client's unique needs, ranging from minimal to detailed involvement. We offer flexible services to accommodate the individual requirements of developers.
