COST, QUALITY & PERFORMANCE
I have formed Measured Twice with a view to making the building budget part of the design process so you get what you want within budget.
After studying Production and Management and Mathematics at University until I focused my attention on the Building and Construction industry in the late eighties and started off pricing and estimating before combining this with practical building experience and my own businesses as a foundation and retaining wall contractor.
In recent years, the quantity surveying and estimating skills have been expanded by working with various housing firms and for larger corporate firms specializing in foundations, slip repair works and building in general.
My aim is to make the building process easier, clearer and less stressful by careful and detailed forward planning and costings at the start and then develop the budget as the project develops in a transparent manner.
