SEPTEMBER 2012 - Hargreaves Jones Building QS and Cost Consultancy

Continuing with Hargreaves Jones’ further expansion plans, a new building cost consultancy section providing traditional quantity surveying and procurement services, together with Employer’s Agent, Contract Administration, Building Reinstatement Valuations, Capital Allowance Valuations and Expert Witness services has been established within the Manchester office.

Simon Brereton who has worked with EC Harris and Franklin and Andrews has joined the company from Watts Group to develop the section assisted by Andrew Dobrowolski who has recently joined from RN Humphreys.

Andrew Dobrowolski has previously worked with Gleeds and Franklin and Andrews, and on various types of projects both pre and post contract within the construction industry, these projects have ranged across a number of sectors including retail, commercial, water, health, education and airports.

Simon has over 25 years’ experience and has gained expertise in the civil engineering, water, railway, road and building construction industries, on high and low value projects. Through his dealings with main and sub-contract administration, as lead consultant or traditional cost manager he has acquired a thorough commercial perspective.

The sector is already generating workload with several commissions for a major fast moving consumer goods company.
