Cost Planning

Through long relationships with subcontractors and suppliers, we generate more accurate cost plans and estimates at an earlier stage. Meaning you are better prepared throughout your project’s lifecycle.

Experience you can count on

Accurate and comprehensive cost planning and estimating are important components of the construction project management process. So it’s important to get it right.

When you work with us at Dobbins Construction, you can count on this being the case. We have more than 15 years of industry experience, working on projects of all sizes, from large to small, across every part of the construction process, including estimating and cost planning.

This experience gives us a huge amount of insight, knowledge and practical experience, which, combined with our strong relationships with suppliers and subcontractors allows us to deliver more accurate cost plans earlier in the piece.

Long collaboration relationships that your project benefits from

For more than a decade, we have worked with and developed relationships with a core group of subcontractors and suppliers. Those relationships afford us the ability to generate more accurate cost plans and estimates during design, which gives you more accurate early cost estimates

More accurate estimates, earlier

As experienced specialists in design management, we apply design management principles before the project is tendered — meaning your project will benefit from very early feasibility at the schematic stage.

The result is very accurate cost estimates at a very early stage of your project. And it’s something unique to us at Dobbins Construction.

Anticipating extra costs before they occur

Specialists in planning and project management

Our strengths in planning and project management see us put a lot of prior planning and strategy into every project… which helps us to identify problems before they become problems… and helps you to successfully avoid them altogether.

Our proven system of identifying, documenting and resolving constructability issues from tender, and identifying relevant compliance and building standard requirements at design, gives you time to address issues before they become a thing. This saves you time, money, and stress.

Better systems and software

We use the systems and software that are usually reserved for more complex, bigger construction projects — like Procore, Cheops, Sign-On Site, Bluebeam, and CostX.

Because we put the same effort into bespoke construction projects as we would larger projects. Meaning your small to medium project will receive a better quality service delivery than you might find elsewhere.
