Oander is a progressive and collaborative Quantity Surveying and Project Management Consultancy. We provide a multi-disciplinary service with the aim of delivering better solutions to the construction, property, civil engineering, and infrastructure markets, irrespective of the project size or complexity.
Oander provides a personal and tailored service to each of our clients, taking the time to fully understand your goals and objectives.
As an independent consultancy, we pride ourselves on being our clients’ trusted advisors by providing robust, pragmatic and results-driven advice.
The Oander team consists of highly experienced construction professionals, project managers and quantity surveyors who have worked for leading construction contracting and development businesses, both within the UK and internationally. This provides us with greater insight and ensures successful delivery and accurate cost forecasts.
Oander was incorporated in January 2013 by Managing Director, Ben Davies, who takes an active, hands-on role in managing both the business and live projects.
Operating throughout the United Kingdom and with a specialist international team, we are able to summarise our services into three distinct offers:
We represent, manage and deliver the capital works, investment and facilities management of a range of clients operating in both the public and private sector.
Oander provides the full spectrum of Quantity Surveying, Project Management, Employers Agent and Building Surveying. Working closely with our partners, we also undertake and deliver the complete, multi-disciplinary package including Architectural, Structural and MEP Design.
Contract Advisory and Dispute Resolution
Our blend of legal and construction knowledge enables us to provide pragmatic, practical and realistic advice to the construction industry. We advise on contractual obligations and how to manage the corresponding risk, as well as supporting contractors on maximising their entitlement through correct contract administration and knowledge. We also represent, lead and manage disputes to ensure they are resolved constructively and through the appropriate contractual channels, including adjudication, arbitration and/or litigation.
Working with those directly responsible for delivering construction works, such as specialist trade contractors, main contractors, construction managers and self delivering developers, Oander provides the full spectrum of commercial and project management support. This means we are able to supplement and support the full spectrum of pre- and post-contract functions such as estimating, claim and dispute resolution, measurement and schedules, change control, and seconded commercial staff.
As independent experts, we are able to select team members for their expertise and understanding of the field in which you, the client, operates.
Oander’s vision is to become not only our clients trusted advisors, but also their critical friend to ensure they receive accurate, realistic, and pragmatic advice.
Our mission is to become the employer of choice, providing working environments that challenge, support and enable our professionals to grow with the business.
Oander is an ambitious, service-led business working throughout the construction industry - a notoriously high-pressured and busy environment.
This is why we strive to instil a culture in which Oander are not only a company but a family, as we continue to support one another and work together as a unit.
This approach enables us to work collaboratively and innovatively, maintaining an open mind to new ideas, developments and ways of working.
Being a family, our team are supported from training and development through to social events, allowing us to relax and socialise outside of the office environment.
Having the flexibility and agility of an SME, we are able to provide a diverse and inclusive working environment that is enjoyable, challenging and varied.
