We are an experienced Chartered Building Consultancy practice in Newbury, Berkshire, that offers a range of tailored services for residential construction projects.  Established by Dan Holloway, a Chartered Construction Manager, in 2009, we help architects, developers, contractors and private clients to successfully complete residential building projects – from domestic extensions through to housing developments. 

With a wealth of experience working on new builds, existing residences and period properties, we offer a range of flexible consultancy services including
Project Facilitation
Capitalise on our extensive knowledge and our extended network of trusted professionals, contractors and suppliers, and let us manage your entire project – from inception to completion, ensuring it runs smoothly, on time and within budget
Cost Planning
Let us help ensure that your building design meets your anticipated budget. We can produce a standalone early stage project costing document or a working document for use throughout the design process
Value Engineering
This service is offered either as an extension to the Cost Plan or as a standalone commission. It is designed to ensure your project budget is allocated appropriately, and where necessary, to explore alternative design options to achieve best value
Tender Procurement
Finding the right contractors is essential to ensuring a smooth build. We will manage the tender process for you – issuing tenders to the most suitable contractors within our extensive approved supplier list, and analysing returned tenders before producing our recommendations
Contract Administration
We are highly experienced at drafting robust contracts between client and contractor, and will continuously monitor the project to ensure all contractual obligations are met and appropriate documentation is provided
Project Management
Offered in conjunction with Contract Administration, our Project Management services provide a professional, proactive, on-site presence to oversee all aspects of the build, and ensure your project is delivered on time and within budget
Quantity Surveying
We seek to minimise the costs of your project and to enhance the value for money whilst achieving the required standards and quality. Our QS services include feasibility studies, bills of quantities and cost control - measuring and valuing contract works and variations, and preparing or checking, contractor valuations and final accounts
Estimating
Working from drawings and specifications, we will create formal full tenders for contractors, builders and private clients. Detailing the various elements of build and tailoring proposals to individual’s requirements, we will also highlight suggestions for any gaps in specification or scope
Projects
We typically work on schemes from £100,000.00 to £5,000,000.00 in value but are happy to discuss ventures outside these values. The background images provide examples of recently completed projects
