Essex Residential Retrofit

I didn’t have any experience of working with a QS on a b2b level before using Quaye Services Ltd, it was usually a PMs responsibility. But I liked that they were always available to speak to us. I was impressed that they were willing to engage in the design conversation to tease out nuances in the project, so I could receive accurate cost advice. And I was surprised how thorough they were. They made time for Client & Design Team meetings to ensure our collective work was done properly. They had a collaborative approach that made us feel like a team and showed us how to present the costs to clients in black and white, helping them make the right decision for their project. Thanks to QS Ltd, we now see the value in the role of a QS in improving the design teams approach to the work, whether it be Architectural, Structural or MEP.”

Gbolade Design Studios -

Quaye Services Ltd have been appointed to provide Quantity Surveying and Project Management services for the renovation of an old vicarage to create a light-flooded central connection between key spaces internally.

Our services included pre & post planning cost consultancy, tendering and procurement, and construction phase Quantity Surveying and Project Management.

The sustainable scheme has adopted a retrofit, fabric-first approach, and will boast stunning views whilst retaining the majority of the existing building. Any parts of the building being demolished will have its brickwork re-used elsewhere ensuring the embodied carbon is kept as low as possible.
