LEAPqs provides general quantity surveying services and also acts as principal agent when requested. The LEAPqs mandate is simple – to ensure that a client’s investment in a construction project is soundly protected. From inception to completion, a multitude of services are provided, all essential to ensure the delivery of projects on time, on budget and of the highest quality.
“We do not compromise when it comes to professional standards, quality personal service and expert advice. It turns clients into return customers and our best advertisement in the public domain,” Andries Grobler, owner of LEAPqs.
The main function of cost planning is to create a realistic budget which can be used to move forward with a development or to check for problems against an existing budget. The cost control process enables LEAPqs to provide clients with detailed and accurate information to assist them in making major decisions. As the design proceeds, estimates for each design stage are done in increasing detail to ensure that the design matches the budget to help maximize cost-effectiveness without compromising design.
Project risk and value analysis
Project risk and budget constraints are inevitable. The LEAPqs team aims to advise clients on all potential risk elements that could pose a threat to the financial stability and milestone dates pertaining to the project.
Project monitoring and change order review
During construction, LEAPqs actively works with the design and construction team to help manage cost variation, ensuring accuracy in relation to current budgets. Progress payments to the contractor are also reviewed, certifying that the value claimed reflects the scope of work completed on the project.
