...we can give the best early cost advice with confidence, even if we don’t have experience

Stephen A. Blease and Associates Ltd

We are a small QS firm working with a variety of clients who often require project costs within the day. A recent architect client of ours was designing a £3.5m development consisting of refurbishments, new builds and offices. He needed to know whether a budget of 3.5 million was correct. By using BCIS Review Online we can give the best early cost advice with confidence, even if we don’t have experience of a similar sized project
