The sectors we work with
Research and technology
Castons has helped its clients to complete many research and technology projects, including research centres, research parks, veterinary parks and education centres attached to university hospitals. We also facilitated a twenty-two-million-pound laboratory project for Hewlett-Packard in Bristol.
Social and charitable
Our portfolio of projects is just as diverse as our experience. Castons has worked on a great many social and charitable buildings over the years. This includes town halls, churches, museums, archives, libraries, arts centres, care homes, hospices and council buildings. We oversee all aspects of these projects, from planning and cost management to contracts and appointments.
Castons quantity surveyors can assess, manage and facilitate all kinds of residential projects, from new builds to conversions – both of which have their own unique planning issues. Converting barns and former commercial properties into residential buildings can prove particularly challenging but our advice and guidance help to keep things simple and on track.
Our many projects in the leisure industry are supported by our experience facilitating hotel projects. For instance, we guided TA Hotel Collection Limited as they created the New Spa at The Swan in Lavenham. Our rigorous project management and risk assessment services ensure these endeavours are a success, in terms of both cost and quality.
Leisure centres, swimming pools and ice rinks are just some of the buildings we have advised on. We work with local councils and independent leisure providers alike to bring these projects into fruition, advising our clients on all matters from budget and contracts to materials and time planning along the way.
Industry and infrastructure
The building and construction projects we advise on vary vastly in nature. Our team has the knowledge and skills needed to expertly move from office and warehousing projects to large-scale site appraisals and road and transport infrastructure. We’ve even worked on a combustion test rig. We’re up to date with all areas of industry and construction.
Castons has been responsible for delivering all kinds of primary, acute, and mental healthcare facilities comprising large scale new build developments, extensions, and complex phased refurbishments on live healthcare sites. Working with multiple NHS Trusts and private healthcare providers we have been responsible for supporting the delivery of billions of pounds worth of capital and estates related development.
Castons has provided quantity surveying and project management services for a number of schools across the UK. These essential projects range in value from just over a million pounds to an impressive twenty-million-pound project for Essex County Council, proving that Castons has the ability to effectively monitor costs and budget.
Commercial and financial
Castons has an impressive portfolio of commercial experience. From shops and garden centres to libraries, council headquarters, business parks and office buildings, we’ve worked on it all. For instance, we facilitated work on The Adelphi in London – home to The Economist and one of our capital’s most recognised buildings.
