Getting professional advice from an experienced cost planner can point you in the right direction early, helping you keep your project on budget.

Regardless of how far along the path you are, a quick review or conversation – perhaps followed up with a more detailed assessment – can often put your mind at rest.

Starting early in the planning process and guiding you through the key phases of design Geoffrey Moyle provides straightforward and realistic budget, cost planning and construction advice and reports.

Working with architects and their clients he offers pragmatic know-how to help you progress your project with comfort and clarity. Contact Geoffrey.

No back of the envelope. No ballpark guestimates. No fingers in the air.

Hastily prepared opinions or estimates can be unrealistic and misleading. And they’re usually just bad news waiting to happen. It’s rarely the choice of colours or curtains that sends a project sour, it’s almost always unforeseen costs.  

With over 35 years advising and assisting on architecturally designed residential, hospitality & community projects, Geoffrey Moyle knows where the traps lie, and ensures they are considered and costed, giving you the benefit of his knowledge and the confidence to continue. 

Geoffrey Moyle Principal, Cost Planner FAIQS, RBP QS-1040, Dip QS RMIT

Organised and practical, I’ve been an active member of the building design, construction and consulting industry working with Architects for more than 35 years.  I am a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors and a Registered Building Practitioner.

Whether it’s helping a homeowner get the home they desire; a community group the building they need; or ensuring a timely restaurant fitout for the owner; I pride myself in getting projects on track and keeping them there.

When I’m not number-crunching a spreadsheet, hunched over design drawings, drafting an email, or on the phone, you’ll find me reading, listening to music, spending time with my family or writing poetry.
