Soben Expands into Europe with Raft of New Contracts

14 November, 2018

Soben Contract and Commercial, the UK’s leading contractor-centric quantity surveying and commercial management consultancy, has announced contract wins across Europe, the UAE, and North Africa, contributing to an increase in headcount from 55 to over 70 in 2018 to date.

Soben has invested over £200,000 this year alone in cutting edge measurement software and hardware enabling the business to complete commissions with superior accuracy and speed.

Following the completion of successful projects in London, Birmingham, and Manchester, Soben expanded into markets outside the UK earlier this year, resulting in contract wins in Denmark, Belgium, Georgia, Turkey, Morocco, and the UAE.

As a result of these new commissions, Soben will be supporting construction projects including an oil and gas pipeline, power station, hydro schemes, and data centres.

Scott Smyth, founder and managing director of Soben Contract and Commercial, said: “At Soben, we aim to be regarded as the best in the market at what we do, providing World Class specialist services that enable our clients to win work profitably, manage financial risk, reduce operating costs and increase profits.

“By securing these new commissions, as well as delivering on a number of huge projects across the UK, we are further establishing Soben the leading provider of contractor-centric quantity surveying and commercial management services in the UK and beyond.

“We have global aspirations for the business. Our next stage of growth will be focused on entering the North American and Australian markets.”

Established in 2011, Soben is headquartered outside Glasgow, with offices in London and Manchester.  Clients include Multiplex, Lendlease, Balfour Beatty, Mace, Skanska, Laing O’Rourke, Kier, ISG, BAM and Galliford Try.
