Contractor focused, world class quantity surveying service

Soben is a contractor-focused construction and quantity surveying consultancy offering commercial management and contractual support services to the utility, energy, oil and construction sectors.

Our aim is to provide world-class specialist services that enable our clients to win work, manage risk, reduce cost and increase profits.

We support contractors and their project teams to ensure that they obtain value and efficiencies in every contract they undertake. We identify and manage their risks and we pro-actively protect their contractual positions.

Their investments and projects are important to us and the fact that we have consultants embedded in some of the world’s largest organisations is a testament to the commitment that our staff have to our clients, the quality of the advice that we provide and the tangible benefits of our input.

Our unique approach is built on collaboration and exceptional people, and underpinned by our corporate values and commitment to outstanding customer service.

We continually drive value and efficiency through the intelligent use of Building Information Modelling (BIM), pro-active cost management and commercial and contract procedures, controls and reports to enable senior management to have transparency in performance.
