With this comprehensive overview of your project, we can ensure it is properly governed from the start in terms of cost and feasibility. It also allows us to provide clarity to you and your clients while ensuring the profitability of your project.

Our consultants provide accurate and detailed tender documents and contracts to help reduce the risk of disputes throughout your project. We also advise all parties on their contractual responsibilities, protect your interests at every stage and help your project run smoothly.

Grand Construction and Building Services Ltd
We have worked with Multiproject on two projects where we were acting as Quantity Surveyors appointed by the Employer and they were acting as Quantity Surveyors for the Contractor.
Multiproject were very approachable and comfortable to work with and knowledgeable in matters of contract and costs relating to the projects. They were fair and reasonable with regards to agreeing variations costs relating to the projects in question and their contribution to the ‘build’ process was positive and helpful.
We would have no hesitation in working again with Multiproject and would strongly recommend them to any building contractor seeking a Quantity Surveyor to assist them with a project from start to completion.

Burr and Neve
I am very pleased with the service provided by Bart Kolosowski and the Multiproject team. I wanted a Design and Construct package on a major flat refurbishment project, which also included a substantial new basement. Togetherwith the main contractor, Multiproject took full responsibility for preparing plans, schedules of works, costings, programming and helped establishing contract documentation.
The project has run to time, with monthly valuation detail produced realistically and fairly. I highly recommend Multiproject services, especially for those who run multiple building projects at one time, as day to day project progress can safely be left to the Multiproject team.
