We’ve operated successfully in the construction industry, estimating and quantity surveying since the 1990s. Because of this, you can be sure we know what we’re doing when we work with you.
Knowledge and practical skills
A lot has happened in that time. The one constant has been our exposure to (and ability to learn from) diverse situations at the sharp end of construction in London and South East England.
The result is our unique combination of knowledge and practical skills. And our capability with powerful industry tools and systems such as CostX.
We also know our way around the relevant contract clauses and measurement codes. And that’s just the tools and paperwork…
Breadth and depth of construction experience
Different industry perspectives are invaluable. Ours come from combining freelance consulting with time working for large builders, developers and subcontractors in areas of construction such as these:
- Commercial premises (inc. office developments)
- Luxury residential projects
- Listed buildings
- Shopping centre remodelling
From £50k comms rooms to £50m luxury residential builds, there’s not much we haven’t seen or done.
Working for prominent construction firms
Did we mention the time spent on site at the ‘sharp end’? You’d be amazed what you learn by keeping your eyes and ears open. We’re formally trained in building management and surveying and have plenty of practical site management experience too. Then there’s our experience of procurement, surveying and site-based QS roles. All for prominent construction companies operating in South East England.
You’ll also find that we’re valuable partners during those all-important front-end, pre-contract and estimating phases of projects. That’s because, as well as having plenty of experience from when contracts get going, we’ve also been heavily involved in helping clients secure profitable, reputation-building work.
Moving projects toward profitable completion
Whether you’re a main or subcontractor, our depth and breadth of experience, accumulated skills and unique perspective is a valuable resource that will enhance your business.
Over the years, we’ve seen what works (and what doesn’t), learned the value of win-win resolutions, and come to value the wisdom of dispute avoidance wherever possible. That’s more often than many people imagine – but it doesn’t mean we’re pushovers.
Gathering facts, preparing robust cases and prosecuting them assertively pleases our clients as we keep projects moving toward timely, profitable completion. Especially when we also help protect carefully nurtured business relationships.
We regularly negotiate head-to-head with contractors, subcontractors, professional quantity surveyors and design teams. As our client, we’re sure you’ll appreciate our robust, informed and fair approach to quantity surveying.
Our existing clients value our ethical approach and ability to work effectively with people at all organisational levels.
Always looking after your interests
Above all, we’re sure you'll like how we use everything at our disposal to do the following:
- Look after your interests
- Save you time
- Help you make money
- Protect your professional reputation
Imagine if we did for you what we’ve done for other discerning clients facing similar challenges.
