The fast growth of the Danish construction industry has led to changes in the way projects are managed. Increased client needs for confidence & quality in the commercials on their projects. More legal requirements for economic control such as the new AB 18 contracts and service description, international contractors entering the market, larger construction projects with tight margins and time frames.
This change has encouraged us to found KOSMOS, with the purpose of providing a greater scope of specialist commercial management services for construction projects. Commercial Management or Quantity Surveying as a specialist discipline is a very well-known service abroad, in countries such as the UK, Ireland, Germany and it is also beginning to be appreciated here in Denmark too.
Denmark has become our home and it is because of Denmark we have met. Over the last number of years we have worked together through many challenging projects, from large hospitals to public school projects. From one-off refurbishments on small offices for private investors to muddy worksites and cold winters in the execution phase. It is with this knowledge and experience that we believe we can add great value to the construction industry by bringing our knowledge from abroad and improving how we do things in Denmark so that we become world leaders in construction delivery.
We share a belief: in order to succeed, you have to avoid repeating the same old mistakes, over and over again.
In order to deliver projects successfully, we intend to develop the commercial side of projects, first by creating a common understanding of the service and its value Secondly, by working hard to collaborate with many other key stakeholders in the industry, to create an aligned standard across all disciplines. A common understanding and shared vision of standards facilitate the integration of optimal and successful processes. It has been a journey for us, from the beginning to present and we are confident that the future is ours to write. In the same fashion, buildings are constructed starting with a solid foundation. We prefer to start the journey from the very beginning with a solid commercial foundation, and progress with the teams and clients to the end. It is from this early involvement and strong commercial foundation that we can help deliver the project on budget, with confidence, clarity and trust.
KOSMOS, the order that emerges from chaos. Providing commercial control of your project.
