    Mechanical and Electrical Cost Control
    Mechanical and Electrical services now account for between 30 and 40% of the total cost of construction of a project and as such the control of this area of the works cannot be overstated. Through careful cost management of the service design using thorough cost analysis and value engineering exercises we ensure that this element of the works is maintained within the initial budget.

    In what has become a very challenging business environment cost reduction is often the principle way in which a business can improve its financial performance. We significantly reduce our clients’ overhead costs. The savings we achieve are usually in the region of 15% to 30% and have an immediate impact on the bottom line. In addition we have found that when our services are engaged clients become much more focused on how costs can be reduced.

    Why TGOS Consultants Ltd
    Identifying savings on a long term basis is a specialist exercise requiring professional expertise. In addition to this, cost reduction is an extremely time consuming exercise which most businesses lack the resources to perform effectively in-house.
