Complex project, comprehensive approach

Midland Metropolitan Hospital will offer an emergency department, maternity, children’s and adult acute inpatient services to half a million people. The hospital will bring together all acute and emergency care services that currently take place at City and Sandwell Hospitals.

Soben delivered detailed bills of quantities to enable the preparation of comprehensive estimates and the procurement of sub-contractors and suppliers for client, Balfour Beatty. A complicated project due to the hospital being partially built, Soben’s role involved completion of the major hospital in Birmingham, which needed to be finished following the administration of the original tier 1 contractor.

Where passion meets precision


For every £1 invested in us to date, we can demonstrate a 10x return on that investment through added value, cost savings or cost avoidance for our clients.


Our experienced consultants have worked at the sharp end of contracting, commercially managing complex projects.


We only hire the best to deliver world-class cost, time and quality outcomes. All of our Managers have previous senior leadership experience within large contracting organisations.

Delivering on our promises

Soben were appointed to prepare accurate and complete scope of works, gap analysis and error identification from the issued design information. The team also prepared the bills in accordance with the client’s requirements to complete the project. Soben ensured all design gaps and discrepancies were picked up to allow the client to make appropriate updates in their tender.

Balfour Beatty needed to gain a keen understanding of the current position (as built) vs the expected quantity and cost to complete. Using the Soben System™ we established certainty for all stakeholders through detailed pre-start, midterm review and detailed commission handover for the project. In addition, Soben delivered post Contract Commercial Management Services for the Mechanical & Electrical packages.
