RAIA Continuum

PlanCost Australia is proud to be associated with the Royal Australian Institute of Architects’ Continuum courses, and in particular the course on Project Cost Control. This course is currently listed amongst the most popular of all of the Continuum courses.
Presented by PlanCost Director Steve Grimes, it demystifies the complex area of cost control of building projects, from the early design phases, through contract documentation, the tender period, and up to the completion of construction.
The course includes information on:

  • The range of services that a QS can provide.
  • The difference between an estimate, a quote, a tender and a Cost Plan.
  • When to use QS services and what information they will need from
    you and the other consultants.
  • An outline of the best course of action if your project is over budget.
  • How to present a Cost Plan to your client, particularly if the project is over budget.
  • Some of the common pitfalls in preparing Cost Plans and how to
    avoid them.
