Cost Control and Reporting
Staying within budget is key. Caliba are here to make sure that happens.
Most projects have variations which incur additional costs. Provided these are properly forecast and managed, the budget can be controlled. We measure and report movements against the cost report and budget on a regular basis.
Allow Caliba to help you in dealing with variations, extension of time, and loss & expense claims to all degrees of complexity.
“Cash is king” and so many businesses fail on this aspect alone, regardless of whether the business is actually profitable. We want to help you reduce the risk of running out of money.
Accurate cash flow forecasts will also aid in your projections for obtaining finances. Caliba will help you continually monitor cash in and out against those projections throughout the life of the project.
For contractors and developers alike, we measure the progress of the works on site and value work executed.
We can produce and assess applications for payment, helping the various parties agree a fair and reasonable sum for the works. We can help produce payment notices and process payments in accordance with contractual provisions.
Final account settlement
We understand that the last thing you want is for disagreements to occur throughout the project without resolution. It is often tempting to kick these issues down the road, making agreement at the end of the works a challenge.
We always manage the account with the finish line in mind. This ensures quick and fair resolution of controversial issues.
