About Us

Founded in 2011, Soben is an award winning, international consultancy providing ‘cradle-to-grave’ procurement, cost, contract, commercial, project and programme management services for blue chip national and international contracting organisations. Our purpose is to ensure that our clients are commercially successful whilst delivering large scale and complex construction, infrastructure, and energy projects.

We are disrupting the QS consultancy marketplace by ensuring that our clients obtain a return on investment against the fee paid to us. A key pillar in meeting our ROI objective is the implementation of our bespoke consultancy approach: The Soben System™

Using The Soben System™, we proactively influence projects, ensure best-in-class results and provide certainty to all stakeholders.

Our experience delivering projects for contractors in a high risk, low margin environment means that we understand the need to be commercially astute and deliver projects on time.

We integrate cutting edge technology into our solutions. From using the latest data analytics techniques to 7D BIM and carbon emission calculations, we develop new solutions that solve our clients’ problems.

From our offices in the UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, the US and Latin America, we deliver our services to clients around the globe. With over 200 full-time directly employed professionals across our key regions (EMEA, APAC, AMER and LATAM) we have the scale and critical mass to deliver.
