We are proud of that heritage – just as we are proud of our reputation as a highly professional firm of chartered surveyors and property consultants. We do not stand still and are forever adapting, constantly looking at innovative ways to service our clients and deliver creative solutions.

Through our office network we are involved in some of the largest commercial, residential and mixed-use property projects in the UK today.

The work is largely in London and southern England but our expertise takes us around the country to work on complex projects, drawing on our wide experience. There is a great deal of expert work, on Appeals, in the Lands Tribunal and other areas where professional excellence matters.
