‘We have engaged with Burgess Associates on several projects now and have found that they integrate well within our project teams and bring level of experience which has greatly assisted. They have assisted with the MEP procurement and QS/ Commercial Management of our projects diligently and effectively. Based upon these experiences with them, we look to maintain a long term working relationship and would have no reservations in using them on future projects we secure.’

‘…..Just to add to this Burgess Associates has provided continual Commercial support to us from Jan 2014 on a number of challenging Projects. The services provided have been very efficient and professional in all aspects and have shown flexibility in accommodating our needs and have been a great benefit in the financial control and reporting on all the Projects assigned to.

In my opinion I would highly recommend Burgess Associates to anyone requiring the extensive commercial services they can provide.’

James Callery , Commercial Director - Exyte

‘I have worked with and have called upon the services of Burgess Associates for almost a decade now and they are always my first point of call for commercial and surveying requirements. I specifically contacted Burgess Associates for the Hinkley Point scheme to provide Commercial management for the prestigious Hinkley Point project. Burgess Associates are always professional, diligent to detail and more importantly holistic in their management approach and administration of the contract whilst considering time, inter-dependencies and commercial implications.

The project experienced a number of challenges including a high quantum of change with often deep underlying interacting complexities and implications which could have had serious implications had they not been managed correctly. A key attribute to the Burgess Associate approach is the management of the relationship with the client on a mutual basis, clearly the focus is to obtain the optimum commercial entitlement for the company they are representing, however this is always achieved in a professional and collaborative manner.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Burgess Associates for any quantity surveying, Commercial management, commercial training or contract resolution requirements.’

Stephen White , Project Manager - SSE

Burgess Associates have been providing commercial support to Norstead since 2017. We needed an M&E quantity surveying service that was both cost effective and flexible to suit the ever changing needs of the business. Burgess Associates have fitted in well and have predominately supported us on fast track retail projects. These include: –

  • IKEA Sheffield – New Build store
  • IKEA Greenwich – New Build Store
  • JLP Peterborough – Refurbishment

Retail is a rapidly changing environment to work in and the cost information we are able to give our clients is vital. The Burgess Associates team offered a fast, reliable and professional service to ensure change management could be accurately assessed and instructed.

The team also worked downstream ensuring subcontractors were valuing their works correctly and pricing variations in line with the agreed principles.

In summary, Burgess Associates are a friendly and professional QS practice who have fitted in to our company well. I wouldn’t hesitate to engage with Burgess Associates on future projects.

Dan Hopkins , Operations Manager - Norstead

‘I appointed Burgess Associates shortly after the project commenced, this was our biggest project and I wanted to ensure we were protected contractually. They dealt with all commercial aspects from pricing and agreeing variations through to recording delays and protecting our entitlement to extension of time and costs, both remotely from their office in Leeds and visiting site fortnightly.

Papworth was a difficult project with different delays and many grey areas in the contract scope, but Burgess stuck to the task professionally and played an important part in reaching a negotiated final account settlement’.

Andy Carr , Managing Director - Fascel Group Ltd

‘Burgess Associates have assisted us with the commercial aspects of our growing business for many years. Initially Burgess Associates offered advice and worked on individual projects as required.

More recently Burgess Associates has had input into our sub-contract orders, revised standard terms with many of our clients and works with us on a weekly basis on our major projects. Burgess Associates commercial knowledge and assistance has been invaluable to the growth and development of our business.’
