Portsmouth City Council is a long standing subscriber, contributor and supporter of BCIS.


The service is used widely by the council’s quantity surveyors, building surveyors and general practice surveyors.

‘BCIS is widely used as an authoritative source of information on a day-to-day basis. The quantity surveying team provides services encompassing every aspect of cost, contract and procurement management for building and engineering related projects. BCIS is an indispensable information source in providing those services, particularly at feasibility and cost planning stages of a project, and for providing base line checks when using in-house data sources.

The general practice surveyors use BCIS to undertake asset valuations of the council's extensive property portfolio, to ensure that it remains adequately insured. Each property requires an asset valuation exercise and costs are re-evaluated or updated as necessary on an annual basis.’

If you would like to talk to BCIS about submitting data, please contact Metin Mustafa on +44 (0)20 7695 1518 or email the data team .
