Before we count the bricks we cost plan

Published on

A cost plan or budget is a key document in the scheme development process. The protocol has been developed as a design manual rather than outlining a rigid prescriptive format. Advising cost and associated information in a form that allows management decisions by client or others is fundamental. DBK cost planners are encouraged to approach any exercise with "client eyes" and tailor the format accordingly.
