Kingston was appointed during the boom years when the construction costs escalated, and therefore the client started faced claims for these escalations, material shortages and extensive delays. Kingston not only managed to keep the claims within the contingency allowances but also, through careful budgeting, planning and cost control, successfully reduced the cost per square meter with each successive project.
