The DGA way

“DGA brings all the traditional QS skills you would expect from a professional RICS firm. Our approach, however, is radical.

Construction cost analysis is no longer just about money and capital cost – it’s about understanding value for the client. It’s about social value, environmental value, performance and happiness.

Life is good and you can’t help smiling.”

Our Mission: Our passion is to guide our clients, partners and our team towards our financial, social and environmental goals.

Our Vision: To change our construction world and our role within it – one project at a time.
