This sector ranges from civic offices and libraries to public open spaces. It also includes building types that are to be found in other sectors for example schools, housing, swimming pools and leisure centres. The Practice works with most of the Local Authorities in the locality of our various offices on Frameworks, select panels or on individual commissions.

We have gained a particular knowledge in housing stock surveys, decent homes standards and in managing large scale housing refurbishment programmes. We have worked on a national basis with Lord Chancellors Department, The Prison Service, Department of Health and Social Security, Department of Work and Pensions and Benefits Agency and provided Quantity Surveying services for the DSS Longbenton development in Newcastle, the largest office scheme in Europe.

Our recent selection to the Supply Chains for OGC (Office for Government Commerce) Buying Solutions Framework further strengthens our experience. We were particularly pleased to have been selected as a member of the Single Partner appointed team to the national Scape Framework for Public Sector Services.
