"We have worked with Nick over the last year on a number of projects and costings, covering commercial valuations, contract support and budgets for tendering. He works well with teams and has been very supportive and reliable."
Project Manager, Crystal Clear Building Solutions Ltd
"If you are like me, and have no experience in building, then you need a quantity surveyor. Nick has been very diligent in analysing the quotes, and then preparing detailed questions specific to each quote from the various contractors. He was then able to put us in a position where we could compare quotes on a like for like basis which is something we could never have done accurately on our own. He has been extremely professional in his work, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone embarking on a build project and looking for assistance."
