Advisory Services

QUANTITY SURVEYING –

Most of Aquila Forensics’ personnel are chartered quantity surveyors and all are highly regarded and experienced in all forms of quantity surveying. We are able to provide all aspects of quantity surveying from value engineering, tender analysis, interim cost valuations to change order valuations, final contract negotiations and commercial close-out.

PROCUREMENT –

Aquila Forensics is able to advise on suitable procurement routes both up and down the contractual chain. We are experienced in negotiating framework agreements, benchmarking, tender analysis and managing supply chains to ensure commercial advantages.

RISK MANAGEMENT –

Our experts are knowledgeable in the identification, analysis and management of risk. We work to ensure that risks are accurately assessed, quantified and the appropriate ownership, transfer, reduction and avoidance techniques are in place to ensure that the best-placed parties are aware of their responsibilities and full transparency is achieved.

 


 

COST MODELLING –

It is possible to manage cost models to help company forecasts, reduce borrowing, maximise efficiencies and minimise risk.
We can help model cash flow so as to provide confidence in outturn costs, enable a solid basis for measuring earned value and provide project monitoring baselines.

LIFE CYCLE COSTING –

We can investigate and advise upon potential options to current work scope, projecting savings and providing viable alternatives that can both benefit the environment and decrease revenue expenditure, resulting in a net saving to the company.

Effective and targeted commercial support can mean the difference between making a profit or a loss, costly dispute resolution and dispute avoidance.

We can provide entire commercial teams with the experience to suit your particular project’s requirement.

PROJECT HEALTHCHECKS –

If you are not sure how your project is performing or would like an independent review, we are able to provide project health checks assessing key components such as earned value, progress to date, actual total cost, forecast total cost and estimated outturn cost.
