AuthorDavid Madden

The latest edition (October 2017 issue) of Australian National Construction Review magazine with a readership of over 31, 320 has featured MBM’s role in The Australian  Rugby Development Centre project and in particular, Helga Maynier, Director and Ling Chen, Senior Quantity Surveyor https://issuu.com/ancr/docs/australian_national_construction_re_bebb17d97c2cb0 Page 166 - 167.

MBM worked closely with the University of Technology Sydney, Australian Rugby Union and the project team, delivering a full quantity surveying service, including pre-contract cost advise, cost planning, value engineering, tender review and post contract services with assessments of progress payments and variations.

MBM believes that value for money in construction is about more than delivering a project to time and budget.  The aim is to build good structures and to ensure a balance between function and whole life cost. The need for economy, efficiency and effectiveness should constantly be tested during the design process to achieve the best outcome.

The success of the project can be attributed to the collaborative working relationship with the client and the project team. “The team has followed a systematic and structured process of team-based decision-making to achieve the best value for the end-users through tailormade design solutions within the cost parameters and timeframe.  MBM’s early and effective cost advice helped to assess the viability of the project by identifying key development risks and ensured the tailor-made design solutions could be provided within budget. MBM is proud to be associated with this high-performance facility”, Helga Maynier, Director MBM.

The Australian Rugby Development Centre project was led by Helga Maynier (Director), David Madden (Founding Director) and Ling Chen (Senior Quantity Surveyor) and supported by a national multi-disciplinary team.
