Our quoting process
This phase is incredibly important to a successful project, so we prefer to conduct a pre-project investigation before we provide a formal quote. This ensures both parties know what the requirements are which, in turn, means we can quote accurately with full knowledge of any 'skeletons in the closet' - from both sides!
Improving accuracy, reducing unexpected costs
Our many years of experience have shown us that complex projects, where in-depth research about your project requirements is not properly carried out, will more often than not encounter problems.
Scope creep (where things are constantly being added to a project, outside of the originally agreed scope and hence prolonging a project and adding expense) is probably the biggest challenge facing any project.
We believe in doing a thorough pre-project investigation because this reduces the potential for scope creep.
Of course, we're not perfect - nobody is! BUT - our experience has shown a significant improvement in project estimation when we have carried out a pre-project analysis.
