Creating Cost Certainty

 

Mitchell Brandtman is passionate about the Development Industry. For over 47 years we have been working alongside Developers helping you to minimise  risk and maximise opportunities on your projects.

We operate across a number of sectors and bring local experience to projects throughout Australia.

How can we assist you?

Having worked on over 21,000 projects, Mitchell Brandtman provide a full range of Quantity Surveying services, from project concept through to completion and beyond… with a difference …we are 5D Cost Planners.

Using the 5D Cost Management methodology we follow the traditional QS project pathway and leverage modern 5D QS techniques, allowing for accurate and timely cost analysis at any point throughout the design process, during construction and post construction. Mitchell Brandtman can deliver a complete service or it can work with a traditional estimating team to create quantity take-offs and cost plans that are automated and revised endlessly throughout all phases of design.

  • Concept Design
  • Detailed Design
  • Procurement
  • Construction
  • Tax Depreciation
  • Concept Design

  • We use Functional Efficiency Benchmarking and Alternatives Analysis to critique and compare your project with other similar projects, identifying inefficiencies and highlighting opportunities that will benefit your design, build and cost whilst considering the income producing elements of the project.

  • Detailed Design

  • We measure directly from the design team's 3D Models and create a dynamic link between the design consultants and ourselves to deliver a Living Cost Plan. 

  • Procurement

  • We assist the project team in minimising risks by having a current knowledge of the industry, contracts and procurement strategies, supported by extensive in-house research and historical project data analysis.

  • Construction

  • During construction, Mitchell Brandtman offers a Contract Administration service to assist your project team in the ongoing management of costs.

    Construction Programming

    Three critical issues in project feasibility and delivery are time, cost, and quality.Through both in-house team members and guidance and support from some of the most respected experts in the industry, Mitchell Brandtman provides project programming and scheduling services.

    4D Programming

    We provide both high level and detailed construction programmes to ensure that your project gets off to the best possible start. Using the latest technology our team builds on standard 3D models to add both the time, 4D and cost, 5D.


  • Tax Depreciation

  • Mitchell Brandtman works closely with Developers throughout the construction process and is ideally placed to provide indicative depreciation schedules.

Why does a Financier need a QS on your project?

A Financier needs a QS to ensure that construction risks are addressed and that they are constantly kept up-to-date on the status of key milestones and events which may impact on the project they are funding.

It is in your best interest to choose someone that knows about Development and has the trust of the banks. We offer a full range of services that can assist you in obtaining development finance.

Superintendent
  • Superintendent

  • Insurance Replacement
  • Superintendent

  • A superintendent is a role defined under the contract. While the duties may vary from contract to contract, in general the superintendent:

    • Is appointed by the Principal
    • Acts honestly, fairly and reasonably when
    • Giving instructions,
    • Issuing certificates, and
    • Making determinations

    In many projects the role of superintendent is either filled by the Principal or is ignored. The question of the Principal as superintendent is really one for the contractor, but the role cannot be ignored. Where there is no superintendent or certifications are not made, risk is created and this will lead to difficulties if disputes arise.

    As a licensed superintendent, and with a team of qualified quantity surveyors, contract administrators, project managers and construction experts, Mitchell Brandtman is uniquely positioned to provide proactive superintendence or act as the Superintendents Representative.

    Further with the experience gained on over 18,000 projects, and the real-time exposure to current market rates we are well positioned to provide precise and relevant advice on variations and claims.

    Generally, we will define the scope for the services based on the contract, the type of project, the level of risk involved and our clients requirements. Services can include: Attending site meetings

    • Receiving and actioning requests for information
    • Issuing written directions and instructions
    • Certifying payments and practical completion
    • Issuing payment schedules
    • Maintaining a variation register
    • Adjusting the contract sum
    • Notifying defective workmanship
  • Due Diligence Reports
