Cost Planning - Methodology - Prof. Christine Kappei

Methodik

The objective of construction cost planning is not to construct cheap houses.

The objective of construction cost planning is to know the costs of design decisions and to make the most effective use of the granted funds. Only somebody who has worked as an architect on high-quality projects, is able to think like an architect and is also able, as a cost planner, to empathize with other persons involved in construction process. Cost planning is not a bar to further proceedings, on the contrary it helps to present in detail the specific qualities of a project.

Our goal is to match the interest of clients and architects to achieve an optimal building, in particular under the aspects of design and economy. Our best prerequisite is an extensive experience, which we were able to collect over many years in cooperation with various architectural offices and clients. The foundation of our construction cost planning is a self-developed construction cost data base.
