DIMSCALE was established in 2010, initially directed to the provision of Quantity Surveying services for Architecture offices. In 2012, we created the innovative concept of Architecture Cost Management® as a way to give an integrated response to the needs of Real Estate promoters, property developers, investment funds regarding the cost management of projects. We have also sought, with this concept, to enhance the team’s expertise concerning its acquaintance with the conceptual, technical and management scopes of the project. Since the creation of this concept we have been participating in several national and international projects as cost managers. The new approach that the concept of Architecture Cost Management® has brought to project management market management has allowed us to affirm ourselves as the leading company in this area. We want to continue to evolve and to contribute more and more to the statement of cost management as an important area for the sustainability of projects.

ARCHITECTURE COST MANAGEMENT
The cost of a Real Estate project is such an important variable that we decided to create a concept exclusively dedicated to its management.
Architecture Cost Management® (Arch Cost Mgmt®) is a concept focused on the cost management of Real Estate projects. Brings together three areas that don’t usually work together: Architecture, Construction and Economy, originating an architectural, constructive and economical view of the project. The concept of Arch Cost Mgmt® is integrated in the project from the early stages of investment analysis until, if required, the completion of the construction phases.
This concept was developed to safeguard the interests of Real Estate developers and investors, investment funds and project owners. Brings advantages by reducing the capital invested in the projects, increasing the return of investment, making the costs predictable and reducing by this way the risk of budget overruns and also by reconciling the costs with the other goals of the project, namely with respect to its concept, image and final quality.
Arch Cost Mgmt® is also directed to Architecture offices, presenting as most significant assets the balance between the cost and the safeguard of the project’s concept, image and final quality. It also provides all technical and conceptual know-how for the technical consultancy and project review, thus adding value to the project in terms of its technical consistency.

INVESTED CAPITAL REDUCTION
Through the concept of Architecture Cost Management® is achieved a reduction in the capital to invest in each project, by optimizing the architecture design (together with the design team) and the constructive solutions to be used.
All the optimization work is preceded by a quantification and comprehensive review of the project, which minimizes the likelihood of unforeseen problems in the later stages, especially in terms of missing information, inconsistencies and unnecessary works.
CONCEPT, IMAGE AND QUALITY SAFEGUARD
The concept of Architecture Cost Management® is premised upon the optimization of costs and upon the concern to safeguard the concept, image and final quality of the project; in this way one seeks for solutions that ensure a balance between these two aspects.
The optimization and foreseeability of the project’s costs, as well as getting a project that is consistent with the defined concept, image and quality, helps to increase the profitability of the project in the medium and long terms.
