Cost and quantity management services

We produce construction economic calculations and analyses as a basis for decisions and operations reliably and efficiently. In cooperation with our customer, we promote the company’s competitiveness and free up time for planning and decision-making.

Cost accounting and management

Cost accounting and cost management are expert services covering the entire construction process. With the help of professional cost accounting, we ensure the financial success of your construction project.

With cost accounting and management, we ensure that your project budget is realistic. We are able to find alternative solutions and guide the design. Cost estimation enables quick reactions to changing situations and cost pressures, as decisions can be made on a data-driven basis. In cost calculations, we utilise comparison material on actual costs and building information models.

Sleep peacefully without budget worries!

Many operators in the construction industry are afraid that the budget will be pushed from one project to another, because the costs seem to take on a life of their own that no one can influence. However, cost accountants have experience, market knowledge and ready-made tools that could be utilised much more extensively.

At Sweco, we have developed a new cost control service, Active, that makes it easier to monitor and control costs right from the start of project planning.

Quantity calculation and management

Quantity management lays the foundation for success in pricing and the implementation phase of a construction project. With quantity information, risks can be minimized and your company gains a clear competitive advantage. Our quantity management experts produce quantity lists in accordance with the Talo-80 standard. Our customers can utilise itemised quantity information both in the quotation phase and in production. Quantity lists are delivered to the customer’s calculation programs as customized transfer files. In public surveys, the cost of the quantity is divided between the contractors who ordered the object.

Building services calculation

We also calculate HVAC volumes based on BIMs from the IFC model in projects where the design has been done with Revit. We can produce the quantities as soon as the plans are received in the contract survey. This saves the HVAC contractor time from their own calculations and allows them to focus directly on the pricing of quantities.

The HVAC Määr@ service includes clear quantity lists by HVAC design field and a list of quantities according to the national nomenclature. The amount can be broken down into lists of quantities using the divisions IV, LJ, YY and SPR. Pricing is based on the number of buyers.

The delivery according to the Määr@ concept includes:

  • Terms
  • Excel-based lists of HVAC design disciplines
  • Definition of the content of the lists
  • Clear revision management, for example in additional letter cases

Method of numerical modeling Monte Carlo analysis

Monte Carlo analysis is based on probability theory and the use of statistics. The analysis can be done both for the cost of construction, as well as for the schedule, and also for the risks of the project. It guides the project team to think about the costs and risks of the project in advance and, among other things, visualizes the probabilities of the distribution of project costs in actual situations.
