Quantity Surveying

PSE Associates provides Quantity Surveying services to both brand leaders and emerging names in the leisure, retail and commercial sectors.

Our nearly 30 years’ experience means we have built an in-depth understanding of the specific requirements of these industries, while also working on commercial, residential and educational projects.

 

We pride ourselves on building and maintaining close working relationships with all our clients and adapting our consultancy services to suit their specific requirements. We provide Quantity Surveying expertise and cost advice from inception through to completion and the agreement of the final account.

 

Our services can be called upon from the very earliest stages of a project to determine the viability of a scheme. Then, as the design is developed, cost planning and further cost checks can be implemented subject to complexity of the scheme, to ensure that the estimated scheme cost can be reviewed against the budget at various stages.

 

We do not merely report and record building costs but are proactive in ensuring that we advise, manage and forecast costs to ensure value and budgetary control is maintained throughout the construction process.

 

As part of a project, we not only support the traditional building contract aspects of developments but are also experienced in dealing with procurement and cost managing of direct suppliers and sub-contractors on our clients’ behalf.
