The overall goal of the assignment was to develop a bankable and implementable housing transaction structure for the project site that (a) satisfied end-users needs and affordability constraints, and (b) the risk/reward constraints of developers and lending institutions - upon which the continued sustainability and scalability of the affordable housing market is dependent. I was responsible for the provision of Quantity Surveying services to the team that was set up to carry out the project, including developing early design costs to final figures, necessary to minimize the costs of the project and enhance value for money whilst ensuring that the project meets all statutory and quality assurance requirements and regulations.
