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

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

A measured and detailed cost plan can be prepared at the schematic design stage. Or, if you haven’t gone that far yet, then a brief conversation or review early will help you put your mind at rest.

Providing realistic budgets and cost plan reports for architects and their clients for over 40 years, he offers pragmatic know-how to progress your project with comfort and clarity. Contact Geoffrey.

No back of the envelope numbers.
No ballpark guestimates.

Hastily prepared opinions or estimates can sometimes be unrealistic and misleading… and just may point you in the wrong direction.

With over 4 decades of experience gained on architecturally designed residential, hospitality & community projects, Geoffrey knows where to focus his attention, and where the traps lie. And he ensures they are considered and costed, giving you the confidence to continue.

Geoffrey MoylePrincipal, Cost Planner FAIQS, RBP QS-1040, Dip QS RMIT

Organised and practical, I have been working with Architects for more than 40 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.
