Expert Chartered Quantity Surveyors

Construction Cost Consultants

Chartered Quantity Surveyors

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to look at our web site. We hope it gives you a flavour of who we are as people and what we do as a company.

Established in 1993, we have provided professional, timely and accurate costing advice for over 20 years.  We are proud to be a leading provider of specialist building cost analysis to clients and contractors, both personal and corporate.

We focus our time, energy, experience and resources into providing what our clients need from us, we listen to what they say, ask the right questions and design the appropriate service for them, we provide the service  they need. Clients need to be happy that we have added real value to the project or there is no point to having a Quantity Surveyor on the project.

It doesn’t matter what stage the building project is at – ideally we’d get involved right at the start, from the outline sketches, that way we can advise the client at all stages so that they understand the impact of the decisions they make, but even at dispute stage, when you think it might be too late, we can add significant value.

Having a professional team on your side adds energy and structured communication to the building project, and a drive to get things right as a team and on schedule – in short – a successful project.

Here are just a few of the things some of the members of our team have to say…

“Relationship business is the key to our success. Over 85% of our business is repeat business and our Trustpilot reviews back this up with 98% rating us excellent or great.” – Philippa Gough, Managing Director

“Our highly motivated, dedicated and passionate team of Quantity Surveyors are the foundation of our company.” – Derek Gough, Director

“With a team of 14 people DGA focus on training and development of people ensuring succession and securing the future for the next generation” – Will Cheung, Quantity Surveyor

I have used the services of Derek Gough Associates for numerous jobs and tenders over many years. They are always very professional, knowledgeable, and always meet deadlines. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Over 125 years combined experience.
