Omnium International Main Board Director Kieran Duckworth shared his thoughts with Construction Week Online about future-proofing the feasibility of construction projects. In the feature, Kieran speaks to Jack Ball about feasibility studies since the last market downturn.
According to Kieran, there is a great ambition to achieve maximum revenue from assets, with feasibility studies relied upon at every stage before clients decide to proceed to design phase or to break ground.
Kieran explains that, for Omnium International, futureproofing feasibility of construction projects requires early cost consultant involvement in the very first project analysis carried out.
Over time, the role of cost consultants has changed. In addition to cost consultants, at Omnium International we refer to ourselves as ‘commercial project managers’, which is where clients are really looking for added value from the cost consultant – and where we can deliver that value to a significant level.
Omnium International delivers unique cost expertise, providing our clients with professional, reliable and effective advice from a passionate and niche quantity surveyor and cost consultancy team. Outstanding service and strong relationships are at the heart of our business.
