Quantity Surveying & Estimating
Financial Control of Construction Work

  • Are you a building owner, developer, builder, architect, quantity surveyor, subcontractor or home owner?
  • Would you like a quick estimate, approximate estimate or detailed costing of your proposed constructions?
  • What about a Bill of Quantities and obtaining more competitive estimates from suppliers?
  • Have you a schedule of resources?
  • Do you need someone to resource, plan and monitor your projects?
  • Do you need financial control over your construction projects? 
  • Would you like final accounts, variations and claims sorting?
  • Are you in a construction dispute?
  • Would you like your property development financially appraising?
  • Is your construction business struggling financially?
  • Are you losing control of your business?
If so, I may be able to help. I am a Derbyshire based Senior Quantity Surveyor and provide the industry with construction financial management assistance. I started my working life as a Quantity Surveyor with housebuilder George Wimpey PLC for those who can remember. For many many years I also owned my own construction business. My experience is broad with engineering, managerial and financial expertise.

Ideal for extensions, housing and new builds, builders quotes and homeowner price comparison.
Prices depend of complexity of the job and how much manual calculated estimating is required.
Otherwise the estimate is created using regularly updated standard preloaded library items.
Estimates for extensions from £250.
If required I can obtain multiple supplier quotations, visit site, attend meetings charged at an hourly rate.
Resource lists are included.
