“I had the pleasure of working with Andy during a restoration project at St Peter’s Church in Roker, Sunderland. The work was of a highly sensitive nature and in Andy’s role as Contractor’s QS, the information he supplied throughout was always highly informed, accurate and thoroughly professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending ALCC Ltd. to anyone within the construction industry and I hope our paths cross again in the near future.”
Graeme Morrison, Project Quantity Surveyor - Sunderland City Council
The Estates have engaged ALCC on a number of Commercial developments over the last few years and I have been very impressed with Andy’s attention to detail.

He always displays enthusiasm for the project in hand and this, combined with his in-depth knowledge of all sectors of the Construction industry provides his clients with a gold standard service.

His cost control and reporting is second to none. I have no hesitation in recommending his services for any construction project.

“ALCC provided us with excellent QS services for a £6.5 million Heritage Lottery Fund bid for South Cliff Gardens in Scarborough. In this complex project Andy delivered astute advice and guidance to bring the project within budget through creative thinking and effective prioritisation. In particular, balancing the different elements and interests in the scheme to produce a well-rounded project meeting the needs of the funders and client was very well done. He is a valuable addition to any construction and landscaping project team.”
Tom Mutton, Project Manager - Groundworks North Yorkshire
“I came to Andy Laurie at the end of 2012 for an independent expert witness valuation of the work of a previous contractor who had gone bankrupt halfway through a project. He demonstrated a good knowledge about the costs of residential conversion work and was able to produce a comprehensive valuation in a timely manner.

“I therefore retained Andy to act as QS during the retender process and the contract to finish the project that followed. His attention to detail was exceptional and he demonstrated superb negotiation and cost control skills throughout the project. I would recommend Andy to anyone, especially those looking for a QS on a complex or specialised project.”

Adam Kershaw, Director, Kirschel Developments
“I have collaboratively worked with Andy Laurie on projects over the past 20 years, projects including educational, primary, secondary and tertiary premises, state, independent and VA school sectors, healthcare developments including major acute hospital contracts, residential, scientific, transport and infrastructure projects.

“Andy’s practice provides a thorough, rigorous and professional service from inception to completion, his experience and the level of service provided I consider exemplary. I look forward to working with Andy for many years to come.”

“Andy Laurie has prepared three building cost estimates for me in the last 12 months and I have been very pleased with the content and format. Andy has a personable but professional approach and I would recommend his services to any Client or building consultant.”

“I engaged ALCC Limited as Employer’s Agents for my construction project to build a new luxury home at Ramside Park, Durham, which is currently ongoing. They have assisted in the process of selecting and engaging a contractor, produced a robust cost plan for the project, which we are monitoring against as the works proceed. I have found them to be an organised and professional company, with sound knowledge of the building process and costs.”
