Below are just a few of the main service areas to help you to plan your next steps as either a private client or a contractor. Many times building and construction projects don’t fit into neat service descriptions for quantity surveying, but that is where our personal service kicks in to make sure we meet your needs, no matter what stage of the project you are at or what situation you are in.

All of our team at Derek Gough Associates Ltd. understand how to design the service in an affordable way and how that translates into a successful project for you.

There are many different specialisms surrounding the construction industry, it can be confusing so we like to be clear on what we do and can deliver.

Q: Do I need a building surveyor or a quantity surveyor?
A: A quantity surveyor controls the cost of construction projects. The activities include cost planning, timetable, value engineering, feasibility studies, and valuation of works and work packages. Quantity surveyors are also known as construction economists, cost engineers or project managers.
A building surveyor covers a wide range of activities that include the following, and are often linked with estate agents.

  • Planning Supervisor under CDM Regulations
  • Insurance assessment and claims assistance
  • Defect investigation and maintenance advisor
  • Building Surveys and measured surveys
  • Handling Planning applications
  • Building Inspection to ensure compliance with building regulations
  • Undertaking pre-acquisition surveys
  • Negotiating dilapidations
