OVER 60 YEARS OF EXPERTISE

Quantity surveying. It’s where the WT Partnership success story began over 60 years ago. Today, it remains a core discipline for our business and our team. It doesn’t matter what kind of project we get involved in, or its procurement method. We have the processes and people to provide rigorous and innovative services.

The cost advice we provide is realistic and comprehensive. It covers all aspects of the project, specifically designed to help our clients in make informed decisions. Our approach and methodology help them mitigate project risk and successfully complete the delivery of their projects.

Our estimating and cost planning techniques are value management driven. We believe that it’s more important to optimise the capital works budget than to solely minimise cost. This methodology has been developed to ensure unnecessary costs are eliminated and to provide the best value within the agreed budget.
