Professional property and construction consultants

Castons is now part of the Artelia Group


Castons specialises in quantity surveying. As part of our comprehensive services, we provide reliable advice on all aspects of your building projects, dealing with everything from site inspections and building condition reports to risk management plans and cost management solutions. We also provide any specs and drawings you might need for minor works, in addition to dealing with any compliance and due diligence issues. We work with clients in both the private and public sectors, collaborating closely with clients such as the NHS to assist with any building issues. We currently partner with NHS Improvement (NHSEI) to conduct RAAC panel surveys.

Project Manage­ment

As part of our project management services, we create detailed project briefs for our clients to help them achieve their property goals. We also provide a realistic budget and optimum team structure to ensure success. We provide the data and analysis you need to make important decisions and can also act as employer’s agents or contract administrators, should you wish. We advise on all aspects of your building project, from suitable forms of contract and procurement strategies to consultant appointments and briefings. We bring everyone involved in the project together to optimise cost, value, quality and time.

Health and Safety

Castons provides a range of specialist health and safety services, including conducting fire risk assessments and display screen assessments. We help to ensure health and safety compliance, no matter what regulations you need to follow, specialising specifically in compliance with the CDM 2015. In addition to the above, we also deliver dedicated fire safety and first aid training courses. We can help you to attain NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) and CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) accreditation and can also provide training for HM Forces.

Our team

The team at Castons is incredibly well qualified. We have a number of RICS certified members and one fellow in our ranks, with degrees and professional accreditations aplenty. However, we’re much more than a series of letters. Each of our partners, associates and senior associates bring their own unique industry knowledge to the table, providing us with invaluable insight that sets us apart from other chartered survey companies.

We’re all friendly and approachable, too. We want you to be able to come to us with all your building and construction questions and will do our best to explain things to you as clearly as possible. We take care of the planning and formalities, so you don’t have to.
