Maintaining and continuing the belief in the tradition of high principles and value for money established in 1840 by the founding partner Henry T. Northcroft, Cost Management and Quantity Surveying remains a pillar of Northcroft’s service.
More recently Northcroft Middle East achieved a number of pioneering initiatives including drafting the first Design and Build Conditions of Contract for building projects that were used for the Racing & Equestrian Club projects in Al Rayyan, Qatar. As well as initiating a Partnering Agreement based on a risk sharing contract procurement for a leading bank in Qatar, under which over 100 projects have been executed for a construction value in excess of QR 100 million.
Showcasing our commitment to innovation within the Construction and Real Estate industry, Northcroft are proud to offer Digital Cost Management.
BIM Quantity Surveying
Not only do Northcroft provide extraction of quantities from models.
We also consult and can be included within the design team to ensure the model is built in line with the latest international measurement standards such as ICMS (International Construction Measurement Standards) to enable clients to gain the full value from the model throughout the life of the building.
Project Cost Management
The effective management of cost is a critical factor in the successful delivery of our client’s real estate objectives and outcomes.
We support our clients by providing a ‘hands-on’ and innovative approach to the management of cost and value at each stage of the asset life.
Historically in the Middle East, access to information has been fragmented, Northcroft have worked tirelessly to build their local and international database and not only provide analysis on costs but provide tailored solutions to our clients for consideration.

Programme Cost Management
Commercially led Programme Management, from concept through completion, we manage the technical and administrative services to help our clients meet their program objectives. We act as an extension of our clients’ staff, protecting their interests as our own.
Having invested in long term relationships, many of staff have been retained by our clients and progress to develop and grow their in house capital infrastructure departments. We oversee activities ranging from planning, coordination, scheduling and cost control, to design, construction and commissioning.
Construction management allows us to enter into partnerships with our clients and the rest of the team, acting in their interest and managing every element of the project.
This service was developed by Northcroft at the request of financial institutions requesting us to ‘step in’ to distressed projects and manage trade packages to completion of the project where a principal contractor had been terminated or was under full operational control of their financial stakeholder. This experience translated into us offering Construction Management from the outset.
Financial control and project reporting is more transparent, progress and cost reports are prepared by us, enabling clear forecasting and control of individual trade package budgets, committed costs, quality and programme compliance.
Design, procurement, construction and cost control becomes ‘one’ process as we manage all the deliverables.
Reports are more informative, easy to understand and professionally oriented. Cost control exposes early trade package cost movements, enabling clear and focused decisions to be made at all times.
