Cabinteely Residential DevelopmentThis is a continuation of our strong background in residential development. We previously worked with Frinailla Developments, who was one of Cork’s largest property developers. We provided full quantity surveying and project management services, delivering all residential units via a design and build model. This included 142 apartments at Orchard Gardens, Dennehy’s Cross, 145 apartments at City Square, Blackpool, Cork, 60 apartments and 17 houses at Castletreasure, Douglas, Co. Cork.

Each developer will have their own specific requirements and we can tailor our service offering accordingly. At MacMinn O’Reilly Mahon, we offer both traditional Quantity Surveying services together with on site cost management of sub-contract packages. We have experience in coding our estimates and sub-contract packages so that they integrate with the internal accounting systems which Developers may use. We have also developed and streamlined appointments, payment and change management procedures to obtain greater efficiencies and more “real time” reporting.

Getting the figures right at the outset is key to the profitability of a project. Accurate financial data that is usable on site for the management of a project is one of our key strengths.

Feasibility Studies – At the outset of a project, we will undertake a detailed feasibility analysis to set out all costs associated with a development, from land costs to construction costs, finance, administration, fees and charges and marketing costs to give a complete assessment of a project. This is compared with projected income to assess the total profit of a scheme.

Detailed Budgets – Following on from the feasibility study, we prepare detailed budgets as the design develops to ensure that costs are managed and controlled as the scheme design is being developed. The budgets are split into labour, material, plant and subcontract budgets as required by our client for the next stage.

Tender Packages – Once the design is developed and the detailed budgets completed, we prepare tender packages for competitive tender. These are then compared to our detailed budget for cost management. Subcontractors are signed up to standard subcontract agreements.
