PBC Launches New Cost Consultancy Division

PBC is delighted to announce the launch of a new Cost Consultancy service, which will sit alongside its highly successful Building Consultancy and Project Management teams.

The new Cost Consultancy department is being headed up by chartered quantity surveyor and cost manager Chris Jones MRICS, who has over 14 years’ experience working across a range of sectors and projects for clients both in the UK and overseas. He has led a number of high-profile projects from inception to completion, working closely with clients and development teams to ensure projects are delivered to budget.

The addition of a new Cost Consultancy department is an exciting development for PBC and reflects the success of its highly regarded Building Consultancy and Project Management divisions.  Because of its size, PBC offers director-level involvement and experienced professional advice across all instructions. The company’s list of clients is diverse and includes property owners, investors and developers, funds, banks and other lenders, landed estates in central London and serviced office providers and occupiers. Projects include commercial offices, industrial and distribution, residential properties, student accommodation, and hotels and leisure, as well as motorway service areas (a specialist sector).

PBC is governed by strong business leadership and management and its strategy for profitable growth has been achieved through building long-term and trusting relationships with clients, resulting in repeat business and referrals, as well as through mergers, acquisitions and strategic alliances.  This year, in addition to the launch of its Cost Consultancy department, the company has refitted and enhanced its office environment, is undertaking a refresh of its brand, and is continuing to invest in infrastructure and staff wellbeing.

Commenting on the launch of the new Cost Consultancy service at PBC, Managing Director Paul Philips said: “I believe we now have the best team that I have ever had the pleasure of leading, and I am therefore delighted that Chris is joining us at a very exciting time, as we expand the range of services offered to our clients.

“Despite the challenges the current fluid, political and economic climate are presenting, we are on track to achieve both our short and long-term goals, and I am looking forward to working with Chris to grow and develop our new division.”
