Our Objectives

We work with clients on a personal and individual basis so they can be confident that we will provide them with proactive advice and at a very early stage. When our clients contact us, they know who will be dealing with their instructions and that they can rely upon us as part of their management team.

Having secured a reputable client base, we are conscious of the need to provide an excellent service so that clients return to us and the business continues to grow. It is with this in mind that we ensure deadlines are met, problems dealt with expeditiously and calls returned.

Our Reputation

We have built a reputation based upon the provision of high quality advice, representation and consultancy, at reasonable fee levels, in connection with construction and facilities contracts and commercial issues.

Our clients are of all types and sizes and work in all sectors of the industry. Virtually all organisations who use our services return with further instructions

We consider that our ability to combine knowledge of procurement, the construction process, commerce, quantity surveying, law and legal procedures – as well as to communicate clearly and effectively – allows us to give a unique and beneficial service to our clients, with fees structured to suit the task. We seek to avoid or resolve problems rather than perpetuate them.


Our consultants continually convert the knowledge they develop by working with our clients into practical breakfast seminars and training courses that will enable you to improve the skill and knowhow of your managers and workforce. This can be beneficial to your business by eliminating the risk of disputes arising and effective management of contracts.
