VFM Chartered Quantity Surveyors, QS and Project Management Consultants

When it comes to ensuring the smooth running and management of construction projects, maintenance and repair works, few things are more essential than professional quantity surveying, QS and project management services.

Here at VFM Procurement, we are delighted to be considered as a well respected London QS practice having become established over many years in our field as chartered quantity surveyors, QS construction consultants and development project managers. Our specialist surveying and management services are tailored to meet the needs of our building construction and refurbishment clients. 

Using our wealth of project development experience we are able to plan ahead and deal with the various issues and challenges that will inevitably arise on any construction project. By implementing sophisticated and effective project control procedures we can solve problems and facilitate more efficient overall performance. Specialist QS, cost control, project management and value engineering systems compliment our construction consultancy services, ensuring that our valued clients are able to take full advantage of opportunities to add value.

Whatever the nature or size of your business or the type of construction project on the table, our professional consultancy services are available to you. Whether you are a developer, financial institution, public sector body, contractor, property management company, commercial tenant or simply a private individual looking to build you can take advantage of our expertise. If your next project is a new build or redevelopment, fit out or refurbishment we can cater for your needs. 

We always advocate the appointment of a professional construction consultant regardless of the nature of the project. Proceeding into construction, refurbishment or development arrangements without essential professional advice can be a costly business. Failing to appoint the necessary consultants can be a false economy exposing building clients to unnecessary risks. Construction and development risks have a regular habit of eventuating into construction problems if not properly managed out.

VFM's knowledge and expertise extends across a broad range of the development and construction industry sectors covering building development and services engineering works on both new build, alterations, extensions and refurbishment schemes.

Many construction and development companies have already benefited from our considerable expertise in the field as our reputation has strengthened over the years.

Just some of the benefits that can be secured from our quantity surveying and project management services, depending on the nature and size of development include:

  • Quantity Surveying (QS)- Appointment of a professional Chartered Quantity Surveyor, or QS, offers many benefits and is essential for effective cost management and financial control of any construction contract. The distinctive competence of our QS services can be succinctly summarised as providing skills in measurement and valuation in the field of construction in order that such work can be described and the cost and price can be forecast, analysed, planned, controlled and accounted for. Core quantity surveyor services often include cost planning and preparing bills of quantities, interim valuations and final accounts for building works. As RICS regulated, Chartered Quantity Surveyors we are professional advisors and our principal role is to protect and enhance our clients� interests. As a minimum, we will of course ensure that our building client receives value for money, however we aim to secure further benefits wherever possible by adding value, using the commercial advantage of our specialist expertise in the field.

  • Project Monitoring- VFM provides specialist project monitoring services to banks and other funding institutions that are in the business of lending monies to developers for the purpose of funding development projects. Debt funding of this nature has inherent risks and as a result it is essential that funders receive professional advice throughout the process in order to manage those risks. At VFM we pride ourselves as specialists in this field possessing the necessary expertise to cover the relevant aspects of any development project from inception to completion and beyond.

  • Project Management- Experience has shown that the initial decisions and strategy adopted are critical to any development. Balancing the fundamentals of time, cost and quality, our project managers translate the scheme requirements into a comprehensive brief, optimising procurement arrangements and project structure to meet client and project priorities.

    Progress is analysed throughout, against the agreed budget and master programme, ensuring that clients are fully informed of the implications of their decisions. Any delays and contractor entitlement to time extensions are regularly assessed along with their potential financial effects.

  • Construction Procurement- VFM has a wealth of building procurement experience across the spectrum of varying contractual arrangements and project frameworks. At the outset of any scheme we would analyse the development project criteria on behalf of building clients advising on the optimum solution for any given set of circumstances. It is important to realise that each construction project is unique. The contract procurement route to be adopted must take account of the client�s objectives, in addition to the specific characteristics of each individual development scheme.
