The traditional heart of our business, Quantity Surveying represents the core service of O’Neil and Partners. Regardless of the size of project, service quality remains the same; flexible and adapted to suit individual clients requirements.

Every project is overseen by a Partner, and our team combine traditional quantity surveying practices with modern technology to provide a tailored, professional and efficient service.

O’Neil and Partners are keen to work with our Clients as early as possible in the project development process. Our experience of various forms of construction and procurement enables us to provide expert advice at an early stage of the benefits of each system and implications on cost and programme.

Acting as Employers Agent, ONP will issue instructions on behalf of the Client and administer contracts carried out on a Design & Build basis.

O’Neil and Partners financial monitoring services provide independent monitoring of construction progress and costs for banks and funding institutions.

Independent evaluation and assessment of costs enables timely release of funds to maintain cash flows, and ensures that funding is only released in line with contractual terms and conditions.

Effective Project Management is key to the success of any project: knowing exactly what the Client wants and ensuring that all parties are co-ordinated effectively to ensure these objectives are achieved.

As part of their Project Management services, ONP can:

Early appointment of a Quantity Surveyor for budget, procurement and contractual advice is the first step to avoiding dispute on your construction project. However, disputes can arise, and appointment of an Expert Witness to help resolve disputes is common practice in the construction industry.

O’Neil and Partners follow the RICS practice statement and guidance note “Surveyors Acting As Expert Witnesses’ and provide an independent, unbiased view.

O’Neil and Partners have over 30 years of experience working on Measured Term Contracts for various NHS Trusts, which has also involved establishing and setting up the contracts in conjunction with each NHS Trust.

O’Neil and Partners also undertake CPD presentations to enhance each Trusts understanding of Measured Term Contracts, how they work, and the procedures to follow to ensure the contract runs successfully throughout the contract term.

O’Neil and Partners provide CDM Advisor and Principal Designer services to assist Clients and to ensure all their duties under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations are discharged.

The duties O’Neil and Partners will undertake include:

O’Neil and Partners’ Contractor Services can be tailored to suit the requirements of both Main Contractors and Sub-contractors alike.

Where tender enquiries do not include quantities, the risks in measurement and quantifying elements for inclusion within tender submissions fall on the Contractor. The provision of accurate quantities will reduce risk and help ensure that tender submissions are complete.
