A professional, accurate and detailed elemental cost plan can provide you with:
Our elemental cost plans provide a detailed cost analysis that takes into account all construction factors, including:
We also assess construction risk contingencies, tenders, and any other items relevant to that project.
Duo Tax cost planning and cost estimating services are presented in report form and are based on detailed measurement and pricing from the available project documentation.
Our reports highlight key quantities and areas with specific inclusions and exclusions, factoring in certain benchmark indicators, contingency and cost escalation provisions and assumptions.
We’ll start by preparing an initial elemental cost plan through a cost analysis of established data from a range of our previous projects. This way, we can provide an initial accurate cost estimate.
The idea behind the Duo Tax Elemental Cost Plan is to provide you with an active tool (not just a spreadsheet of cost estimates) to manage cost planning and project costs through all stages of the project.

Apart from providing a full system of cost estimating and cost planning, as Quantity Surveyors, we can help the architect evaluate comparative costs for alternative systems of construction and finishes.
We can also advise on the total cost implications and methods of construction.
