With nearly two decades of experience as a Quantity Surveyor, I have had the privilege of collaborating with leading main contractors and developers across the UK and Ireland. My skills extend beyond the conventional scope of a QS, encompassing a broader spectrum of expertise in land development.

Boasting a 100% success rate in obtaining planning permission for dozens of new homes, I possess the necessary range of skills and experience to identify, evaluate and maximise land values.

My track record includes successfully navigating the intricacies of brownfield sites, overturning planning refusals, and aligning with local community interests, demonstrating an exceptional ability to maximise land values.

My approach is meticulous, grounded in a comprehensive assessment of all potential technical constraints that could impact development and subsequent construction costs. This includes a thorough understanding of planning permission, legalities, technical construction constraints, and build costs.

If you are considering purchasing land or seeking to establish land values and potential technical constraints before applying for planning permission, I am the professional you need. My expertise ensures that you make informed decisions, mitigating risks and maximizing the potential of your land.
