The Client Supply items page for a construction cost plan
This is a simple article discussing the various elements of a construction cost-plan to attempt to articulate the best practice for construction cost-plans.
The Client Supply package page is simply one page of around thirty pages that lay out, item by item, the works involved in a construction project.
The Client Supply page for a construction cost plan is simply the page that lists out all of the products that the Client will supply e.g. washing machines and light fittings.
In a typical construction costs plan there will be separate sections for the following elements (trades/work packages):
Its purpose is to summarise and total all of the various costs associated the Client Supply package page.
It means that the Client or any of the team members can see exactly 1) what the final total is 2) where the costs are split through the work packages.
The Client Supply page should have the following:
Here is an example that we have mocked up specifically for this article:
The Client Supply costs can be found easily by contacting all of the businesses that will supply the items and collating them.
These businesses specialise in supplying these items so you can get a fixed price from them for the works.
Some of these companies will price for supplying all of the materials but if you want to provide the materials then they can provide a labour only price.
This reduces your risk for this package as you are sub-contracting the risk out to someone who can handle it better (because they do nothing but these items e.g. washing machines and therefore know their costs a lot better than you would).
