Quantity surveying

As chartered quantity surveyors, we take care of all aspects of your building projects, from estimates, risk assessments and compliance to drawing up contracts, completing tenders and hiring subcontractors. Cost management is a huge part of this process, too, whether it’s managing your budgets, overseeing payments or valuing completed work.

RAAC panel surveys

Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) panels were used in many hospitals and education facilities across the UK in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Following a collapse at a school in 2018, the government is now funding condition reports that will need to be provided throughout the lifetime of the affected buildings. We are the lead consultants for these surveys, also helping to remedy issues identified.
