Silva Cost Consulting approaches every project by identifying everything that
is not shown on the drawings. By working closely with clients and owners,
Silva Cost Consulting helps to bring projects in line with budget concerns
and design intent. In addition, we scope every project from “scratch”.
Assuming that all school projects are the same, or all police stations are
the same, is the surest way to bust your budget. This method may work for
conceptual or preliminary budgeting, but we let each project stand on its own
merit when it comes to the final construction document estimate.
