Our service offering in the UK
We provide our clients with specialised cost advice to give them confidence in the viability and profitability of their projects.
Before a site is acquired, we provide quick and informed decisions about the feasibility of a proposed development. During construction we manage costs and the supply chain to maximise the return on investment. Our exceptional technical knowledge enables us to balance time, quality, cost and risk, resulting in the efficient delivery of a project.
130 years of market intelligence
With over 130 years’ experience of quantity surveying and cost management across all sectors, our detailed market and construction knowledge enables us to evaluate and reduce costs, while aiming to increase the value of the asset. Our wealth of sector-specific benchmarking data provides invaluable modelling and minimises waste throughout a project, from planning through to installation.
We take a proactive and personal approach to our client’s projects and our relationships with them. Understanding their aspirations, risk profile and the market expectations is the key to a successful outcome. Our clients benefit from the advice and expertise of qualified senior cost managers who play a hands-on role at all times.
We understand our clients may have to make decisions on acquisitions very quickly, often with limited information about the potential of a site. Our RICS qualified cost managers rapidly assess the viability, cost and return on investment. With extensive experience in volatile and highly competitive markets, we help our clients secure developments without exposure to high levels of risk.
As an independent practice, we offer impartial advice; managing the supply chain, enforcing contractual conditions and protecting our client’s interest while actively managing the budget.
We advise on the best procurement strategy and manage the procurement process. We draw up contracts, check all work and manage change and valuations to deliver projects to the agreed specification, price and schedule.
