As a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Ashdan is set apart from other consulting firms by our team’s extensive experience within the entire construction process.
From the procurement stage of new projects themselves, to their design, planning, implementation, and management, Ashdan’s team of expert surveyors have over fifty years of collective experience honing their skill and their approach towards construction.
Over time, we have tapped into all sectors across the UK to develop our expertise, and every action we take is informed by our past success, placing the best interests of our clients at the forefront of everything we do.
We work closely with you to understand the most efficient and cost-effective way forward for the construction plans under focus, and will guide you with our full support all steps of the way.
We carry out rigorous due diligence for all cases to ensure we have a deep understanding of the potential routes projects can take. From here, an account manager is assigned to you and will work to keep you informed in a process characterised by full accountability and transparency from our side.
Our offerings can be accessed through the three main areas: our Project; Commercial; and Expert Services.
Through the selection of services we provide as commercial chartered surveyors, your project can be managed from the procurement stage, to surveying, towards controlling the costs involved.
When you are investing in a scaled project, it is essential that you have peace of mind that those involved in the process are excellent at what they do, and can be trusted to do it right, for a fair price that reflects their skill. This can be achieved by using Ashdan to formulate a project procurement strategy for you.
We leverage our network of connections throughout the industry to source specialists and contractors that we know are right for the specific needs of your project, and after sourcing, our management and processes help create an execution plan that sets your construction up for success from the outset.
Our key service focuses on managing the financial and quantum elements of your construction project as Quantity Surveyors in Newcastle. Throughout the entire process, from fruition to completion, we use our expertise to generate efficiencies for you, and produce interim and final reports that ensure the monetary risks involved in the building are mitigated and accounted for. Through skilled cost control management and quantity surveying, Ashdan Consulting will keep you on track.
As Projects Managers, we have your back throughout the entirety of the work, helping with design management issues, and fund monitoring. Unlike the absence of this option from many other consultants, we deal with the designing of the project itself.
We manage the design process on your behalf to deliver results that are based on both our experience and recommendations, whilst factoring in the exact requirements that you ask of us. We use our eyes as expert surveyors to ensure that all of this is done in line with the budget that is set out from the start.
When it comes to the legal dynamics that underpin the whole construction process, it is vital that you have experts in your corner for contractual advice, bid management, and to act as expert witnesses. The success of a project is predicated on the fundamental agreements that are made between everyone involved in the process.
Any contractual disputes that arise, and need to be resolved between specific stakeholders, Ashdan can advise you on the best course of action to protect your investments and make sure you receive the services promised to you from the signing of deals.
Writing, coordinating, and managing the bids and tender submissions themselves is a service we uniquely provide through our consulting firm. We have an excellent track record of delivering for clients, securing them fruitful bids that set projects up for success.

Whether you are undertaking a residential or commercial construction project, Ashdan has successfully managed the procurement and delivery of a multitude of projects for clients in all sectors. Take a closer took at some of our case studies.
We employed Ashdan Consulting as Project Manager, QS and Employers' Agent on our first major construction project.
John’s approach was extremely professional, and the level of service was truly above and beyond our expectations.
He looked after us incredibly well from pre-tender stage all the way to completion. I can honestly say, as I contemplate our next project, that Ashdan Consulting will be our first port of call.
The level of knowledge and experience that John and his team bring is invaluable.
I couldn't be happier with the level of service provided by John and the team at Ashdan Consulting. Their extensive expertise and detailed construction knowledge was invaluable when helping me handle a dispute with my design and build contractor.
We couldn't have gotten through those stressful months without John's help and often moral support. My word of advice and guidance would be for anyone looking to embark on a build, get Ashdan Consulting to review your contract for works BEFORE the build commences, they will save you a fortune in the long run. First class service and can highly recommend.
We engaged Ashdan Consulting to advise us on a contractual issue on one of our projects and found this to be invaluable support.
Their advice was clear, prompt and professional, and it provided us with an excellent basis on which to progress our claim for entitlement under the contract.
They would certainly be my first choice to work with again, and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone needing contractual advice or claims services.
Our first project with Ashdan Consulting at Catherine House was via a personal recommendation, which has proved to be absolutely correct.
Their attention to detail and the service they have provided us on what is a very tricky project has been fantastic, and I will certainly be working with them again on our next development.
We have used the services of Ashdan Consulting several times over the past two years, ranging from a bit of guidance over the phone to more in depth and complex issues we have faced in relation to contractual disputes.
Every time the service and advice we have received has been fantastic. This has resulted in saving us time and money, and more importantly has reduced stress!
I have no hesitation in recommending John and the team for any of the services they offer.
I have known and worked with Ashdan Consulting for several years.
They have a proven track record in the construction industry, providing an excellent Commercial and Project Management service.
I continue to work with Ashdan to the present day and value their contribution to my business immensely.
We approached Ashdan Consulting to support us in the Quantity Surveying role required to complete the Milburngate project in Durham. They were required to liaise between the Client, our Project Manager and the legal teams to develop the contractual requirements for the project going forward, as well as managing the cost negotiations for the ongoing works. The expertise provided by Ashdan enabled us to confidently undertake the works required by the Client to progress their development through a very difficult situation. They kept us fully informed at all times and coordinated all commercial communications with the Client. With Ashdan’s support we were able to fully recover the costs we incurred in completing the works.
At all times Ashdan acted professionally in the way they conducted their business and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
Your report was excellent, thorough and clear, and it really helped us navigate the quantum matters, so thank you very much.
Our client was also very impressed with you and your work, which was great to hear
“I have recently been working with Ashdan Consulting Ltd on a complex construction claim where the company provided Expert Witness & Quantity Surveying Services. I was dealing with John Johnson the Managing Director who from the minute I spoke to him I knew he had a vast range of experience.
Having worked in the Construction Industry for over 30 years on several large projects John spoke the same language as myself and we both had exactly the same viewpoint on the various elements we were discussing which was very refreshing. I found John very diligent, knowledgeable and lived and breathed the claim that we were dealing with. John was supported by his team who worked diligently in the background to pull all the pieces of the required documentation together which was not an easy process. All of this was carried out under a very tight timeline, they reacted quickly when we asked him to look at alternative connotations.
I would not hesitate in recommending John in this role on similar projects and I hope one day I will work with him again”.
