CPD – Scope Creep

DATE: Thursday 22 August 2019

Buildings and the processes we use to design them are both incredibly complex and susceptible to blowouts. We all know that managing scope creep is a difficult challenge, but what tools and insights are there to help us keep our fees and our clients’ budgets in check?

In this CPD, we will explore ways to help you better charge for services outside your fee base and keep your clients’ scope and budget on track.

  • Geoffrey Moyle Principal, Cost Planner FAIQS

Geoffrey has been an active member of the building design, construction and consulting industry for more than 35 years.
