Quote:“Our long-term view of our customer relationship motivated us to find a solution not based solely on short-term profit.”

Challenge

When our client needed to begin construction on a new building before the building permit expired, the lowest offer it received to open the site diary was in excess of €25,000, plus a monthly retainer.

Solution

We determined that what was required of the client to maintain the validity of the building permit was actually simpler than what other construction management firms were presenting in their offers. We advised the client to work with our in-house construction team at a significantly lower fee than what other companies were proposing.

Results

Because of our thorough knowledge of building permits, our client paid only €1,000 per month, and was able to begin construction as planned.
