Construction Advice

Home > Our Services > Construction Advice
Expert advice without compromise.

Codicote is proud to be the “builders on the client side” providing advice from our real-world experience as builders, without compromising the ability to go to competitive tender or maintain a strong negotiating position. We call this Early “Codicote” Involvement, as an alternative to Early Contractor Involvement.

There are many benefits of tapping into Codicote’s building expertise at the beginning of the project lifecycle. The cumulative effect of early decisions made through the lens of the builder critically influences the success of a project in minimising risk.

As an example, prior to acquisition Codicote perform site and asset assessments that are crucial to accurate due diligence and critique the design for buildability, constructability, authority approvals. Codicote is then able to advise on any potential difficulties in bringing a project out of the ground. Clients find our high-level development timelines useful in planning cash flow, finance and project pipeline.

When it comes to design, we facilitate introductions with industry professionals to build the right team of trusted disciplines tailored to each project. We conduct design reviews for completeness and coordination and to identify any missed opportunities. These design reviews are the key to avoiding cost and programme blowouts.

The other essential tool for the success of a project is cost planning – the map to smooth project implementation. Working alongside your appointed QS, our valuable critique, buildability and constructability inputs ensures a tailored cost plan with improved accuracy.

Our track record speaks for itself. Codicote’s advice has achieved an average 16% better project cost, and a shorter programme by an average of 28%.

We count a wide variety of property organisations and businesses amongst our clients: developers, builders, REITS, Government agencies, tertiary education providers and more. Codicote can provide mediation and dispute resolution services to navigate the inevitable challenges that arise.

"We involved Codicote early in the project to help review designability and constructability of the site and we are very satisfied with the opportunities they have helped to identify. Together, we were able to map out critical paths throughout the project from concept, design critique, planning submission and permit, tender and construction management."Teck Lay TaySteadfast Capital Pty Ltd - Executive Director
