Value Planning & Risk

QSPM have knowledge of providing strategic planning services to support client organisations in planning their strategy. We can assist with setting goals, determining actions to achieve those goals and in making decisions on allocating resources to follow the strategy.
Whether you are a developer with a piece of land to utilise or an estate wishing to alter its building stock to changing requirements, we can offer our expertise to assist with project masterplanning. The masterplanning process will assist in teasing out the key elements of the brief, encourage creative thinking and test out how these ideas might work in practice, developing a robust logic to underpin the scheme.
Whole Life Cost Planning
QSPM have the expertise to both coordinate and contribute to the whole-life costing of a project. This collaborative process enables decisions to be made about value for money in the planning stages by looking at the balance between design, development, construction, occupation and maintenance costs. Our access to benchmark data and understanding of future cost trends can also benefit the process.
Re-location Project Planning
As with any major project, proper planning and organisation are key to a successful move. Once the decision to relocate is made, QSPM can bring our experience of the construction process to assist with development of a Relocation Project Plan to minimise disruption and expense.
