Budgets and Strategy

Space budgets and Funding Strategy Bidding
3BM understand that during the process of design and delivery
the client brief needs to be explicit and clear. The preparation of
a detailed space budget forms an essential element of the brief which is then circulated to the wider team. This is undertaken at the first stage of the engagement process and will be developed with the end user to clearly define the space schedule and this will be reviewed and the assumptions refined if necessary to produce a robust space budget which will in turn show the efficiencies and inefficiencies of the campuses.

Funding Stream Strategies and Assistance
3BM are acutely aware of the need to obtain funding in both the public and private sectors. Through the development of any project 3BM are experienced in assisting delivery and producing funding bid documents which will assist client in obtaining the relevant funding for the project in question.
