Design Economics & Cost Planning

As part of the APC support Programme 2020 (Winter Session) the 12th APC Support CPD discussion session will be on,
“Design economics & cost planning”
SLQS-UAE would like to invite those who have already registered for the program as well the others who have not yet registered but willing to take part in the program for this APC support CPD No. 12 | 2020 (Winter Session) organized by the SLQS CPD subcommittee.

About the speaker:
Mr. Ranjith Dissanayake
Manager, Contracts and Commercial, North 25

Key Areas of Discussion:
Cost control of the project starts at the initiation of the design. This pre-contract cost control will spread through the design development period. When Architect develops the design, Quantity Surveyors/Cost Planners will develop the cost plan. It is interests and important to know how the cost of basic concept design calculated and then develops step by step where the design information (details of the building) is minimum. Quantity Surveyors shall be aware of such cost estimation methods including “Life Cycle Cost” where modern developers have more interest in economical “run” of buildings rather than construction costs.

Quantity Surveyors are cost advises to the design team during the pre-contract stages of the project. Comprehensive knowledge on cost control in the view of “Life Cycle Cost” mechanism is very important to Quantity Surveyor. This is a rare knowledge of the common commercial practice. Take this opportunity to learn the outlines, methods and controls in cost estimates during design.
