Getting professional advice and direction from an experienced cost planner helps keep your project on budget.

Regardless of how far along the path you are, a brief conversation or review will help put your mind at rest, until a more detailed cost plan is prepared.

Ideally starting early in the planning process, Geoffrey Moyle will guide you through the key phases of design providing straightforward cost planning and construction advice.

Providing realistic budgets and reports for architects and their clients for over 38 years, he offers pragmatic know-how to 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 sometimes be unrealistic and misleading, and little more than bad news waiting to happen. It’s rarely minor changes, details or finishes that send a project sour… it’s unforeseen costs.

With experience gained on architecturally designed residential, hospitality & community projects, Geoffrey Moyle knows where the traps lie. And he ensures they are considered and costed, giving you the confidence to continue.

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

Organised and practical, I have been working with Architects for more than 38 years. I am a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors and a Registered Building Practitioner.

Whether it’s advising a homeowner on the home they desire; a community group on the building they need; or ensuring a timely restaurant fitout; 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 listening to music … or writing poetry.
… Got a project you’d like to discuss? Get in touch.
