The work will be carried out and completed in a fully professional manner irrespective of the time necessary or the fee agreed for the commission.

Experience
A Chartered Surveyor with over 40 years experience of the building industry, a former President of the Society of Chief Quantity Surveyors who recognises that cost must be treated as an element of design and not as an unfortunate by-product, and a former member of the Association for Project Management who has managed projects ranging in value from £1000 to £50 million
