Our Why: To Maximise Value

Soben was founded in 2011 with a vision to disrupt the traditional quantity surveying and commercial management marketplace. We are unique in that we combine traditional quantity surveying skills with our front-line practical experience commercially managing complex projects for contractors and developers.

We bring this unique approach to blue chip national and international organisations who develop and construct prestigious and complex projects across the construction, civil engineering, technology, rail, utility and energy sectors.

Our Mission is “To Maximise Value” for our clients. That is our Why. We do this by supporting our clients to win work, manage financial risk, embrace opportunities, reduce operating costs and increase profits.

We treat every fee received as in investment in us and we must demonstrate to our clients a return on that investment.

There is a golden thread that runs through the Soben leadership team – we have all worked together at various points in our career. We all share the same Values and are passionate about our Mission. We each have a burning desire for Soben to be the best in the marketplace at what we do.

We take ownership and treat our clients’ business as our own. This partnership approach results in a mutually beneficial long-term business relationship. As a result, demand for our services has led to our organic expansion across the UK, Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and more recently Australia and North America.

We are proud that Soben are Trusted for Growth.
