Cost planning

A trained eye

To the untrained eye, one building can look very similar to another. Workplace Concepts works with you to identify and select the building that is right for your business from the initial building appraisal to commissioning the necessary mechanical & electrical validation survey and health & safety checks.

Project Cost Analysis

Services in detail

  • Value Engineering

    During the early design development stages, value-engineering techniques are applied to the project to evaluate whether the use of alternative materials or a different design proposal yields greater efficiencies.

    Our priority is to develop cost effective design solutions that meet your needs. The creation of innovative design solutions does not always necessitate spending a lot of money on expensive finishes.

    The whole Workplace Concepts team applies its knowledge and experience within the industry to ensure proper scale of economy is applied, getting you the best results possible for your business investment.

  • Building Services Validation

    Prior to committing to either the purchase of a building freehold or signing a term lease agreement, it is crucial that validation checks are carried out on the building services.

    This is necessary to ensure that all existing plant and equipment is performing in accordance with the base building design criteria. This can be particularly important if you are taking space that will require extensive modifications to the existing services.

    We can arrange for the appropriate type of validation checks and reports to be prepared, saving you from costly mistakes and potential disputes, which are sadly seen far to often within the industry.

  • Capital Allowances

    Capital Tax Allowance relief can be claimed against the capital cost of new plant and machinery that has been incorporated into the project scope of works.

    However the definition of plant and machinery is subject to interpretation of the regulations – knowing what can be claimed and what can't is a specialist subject in its own right.

    To avoid falling foul of the regulations, Workplace Concepts partners a surveying firm who can calculate the Capital Tax Allowance, ensuring your business gets maximum return on your investment.
