  • What our clients say
    about us?

  • Over the years Mitchell Brandtman has made an invaluable contribution to the UDIA (Qld) and the wider property development industry. In particular, David Mitchell who continues to share his 30+ years of experience at our events across the State and Michael Ivey, who brings passion and creativity to each and every UDIA (Qld) initiative in which he is involved. The team at Mitchell Brandtman has been generous with their time, knowledge and support for the industry - a true testament to the value they place on people, progress and innovation.

    MARINA VIT

    CEO

    Urban Development Institute of Australia (QLD)

    Mitchell Brandtman's 5D Quantity Surveying skills have allowed Lend Lease to solve one of the industry's pressing issues of the desire to tender on the latest documents still being worked on while Bills Of Quantities are prepared by rapidly updating the final Bill Of Quantities to the final BIM model on our Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital project, communicating those changes to the wider team with simple 3D model overlays that highlight what's changed. By embedding links between the Bills of Quantities and the model, tenderers can quickly understand the scope of a trade package, derisking the package, allowing more competitive pricing.

    TONY AVSEC

    Senior Cost Planner

    Lend Lease, Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital

    Mitchell Brandtman have provided this practice with a full range of cost planning services over the past twenty years. The ability to consider alternatives to develop cost effective solutions and generally assist in delivery projects on time and on budget is the reason we have continually used their services, and hope to further develop this association for the next phases of both organisations.

    RHONAN O’BRIEN

    Director

    Mode Design

    I have used the Cost Management and Quantity Surveying Services of Mitchell Brandtman over the past four years on various development projects, including mixed use and large scale residential apartments. Mitchell Brandtman provided their services in a timely and efficient manner. In all instances, I found their work to be accurate and relevant. In addition, the Directors and team were helpful, obliging and never forgetful of the importance of those services to me, my company and our Financier.

    MICHAEL KOUNDOURIS

    Director

    Koundouris Group

    Mitchell Brandtman’s understanding of how to audit, remedy and use building information model data combined with their knowledge of the design, construction and asset management process has put them at the forefront of BIM based cost planning in Australia.

    PAUL NUNN

    Senior BIM Process Manager

    CSI Global Services

    Mitchell Brandtman were appointed as the QS on Shimano’s Australian Corporate Headquarters and Distribution Centre at Caringbah. Working in conjunction with the builder, Mitchell Brandtman were proactive in not only putting forward acceptable options but also in the processes of refining and achieving the required cost base. At all times we were fully kept up to speed and well briefed on cost variations and project status timelines.
